During the drive, public awareness campaign is being organized to counsel villagers, educational institutions and road users and make them aware of the provision of Motor vehicles Act and Railway Act by distributing posters, pamphlets, handbills in gram panchayats, markets, petrol pumps and other public places. Many campaigns through newspapers, TV and radio are also being organised. Street plays are also organised to spread awareness about the safety measures to be taken at unmanned crossings. To enhance the safety and reduce inconvenience to road users, busy level crossings are now being replaced by Road Over Bridges, Road Under Bridges and Limited Height Sub Ways (LHS).
