Why Should We Mitigate RVI's?

Following a crash in 2001, whereby a passenger train travelling from Newcastle to London hit a Land Rover Defender which had fell down the embankment of the M62 and was obstructing the tracks.

The passenger train was then struck by a freight train which killed 10 people including the drivers from both trains and injured 82 passengers.
In 2003, the Department for Transport issued making Network Rail, Highways England and local authorities responsible for mitigating the risk of a road vehicle getting onto the tracks.

As we have seen road vehicle incursion pose significate risk to the safety of rail passengers.
