The methodology provides a summary of the most important available information regarding the establishment, operation and use of camera systems at railway crossings, primarily for the purpose of identifying and sanctioning traffic offenders at crossings, but also other functions (supervision, information material for accident investigations, material for resolving disputed cases, e.g. complaints about non-functioning security equipment, etc.). Based on our own research, experience and literature study, it can be conclusively stated that camera systems are an effective means of positively influencing the behavior of road users and at the same time providing a number of additional useful functions to other parties. The aim of this methodology is to support their effective practical development in order to increase traffic safety at railway crossings and reduce the risk of extraordinary events.
