Assessment of the joint safety-related project of SŽDC, CR Police and the Metropolitan Police

From 8th to 12th August 2011, the Police of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Prague Metropolitan Police organized safety-related operations which focused on the “No entry” violation in an area which is off limits to the public. This event took place on the premises of the railway station Dejvice.

These joint operations  were assented to based on the information on massive breach of the provisions § 4a of the Railway Act No. 266/1994 with a view to reducing the number of persons who put themselves at risk to be injured or killed.

This event proved frequent indiscipline of passengers who regularly cut their way through the railway premises from the railway station Prague - Dejvice to the metro station Hradčanská.

The effected precautions fulfilled its objective related to the prevention and safety on the operated railway infrastructure.
The table below shows that the number of passenger-violators during the duration of these precautions rapidly decreased.
As a result, the operations in the railway station Prague - Dejvice were closed and will be resumed later, if required by the safety situation in this area.

Tickets were imposed for offence of passing over a level crossing after the activation of the flashing light crossing signals or the gates pursuant to § 125 art. 1, letter k) Act No. 361/2000 Coll., on the Operation on roads. Altogether 14 tickets were imposed on the spot.

The determined offences breaching the provisions of § 4a of the Railway Act No. 266/1994 Coll., were immediately handed by the inspection body to the administrative body (the Railway Authority) to launch the administrative procedure. It may result in recourse due to the breach of law in the form of sanction totalling CZK10 thousand to 44 undisciplined citizens.

Thanks to good cooperation with the Rail Authority, CR Police and the Metropolitan Police, SŽDC will proceed with these purpose-oriented events. The exact venue of the event and the dates are not presented for strategic reasons.
