Cross Tracks Cautiously! Always look and listen for a train and never try to beat a train if you see or hear one approaching. The results are not worth it.

Operation Lifesaver Inc.

Crossing tracks on a bicycle requires extra caution. Narrow wheels can get caught between the rails. Cross at a 90-degree angle. #BicycleSafetyMonth

Tracks are for trains...Not people.

We can't say it enough: Even if railroad tracks look abandoned or used, they are private property and trespassing is illegal. And dangerous. If you see tracks, you should ALWAYS expect a train--at any time, and in any direction. #RailSafe #AlwaysExpectaTrain

Operation Lifesaver Massachusetts

More people are struck and killed by trains each year while trespassing than in motor vehicle collisions with trains at highway-rail grade crossings.

Did you know? Today's trains are quieter than ever. An approaching train is closer, and moving faster, than it appears.

🚂Railroad Safety Tip: Don't wear earbuds, or headphones, near railroad crossings. They make it hard to hear trains.

Weather conditions such as snow and fog can reduce visibility drastically, making it hard to see a train coming. Stay alert near crossings.

Happy Holidays!

You're expected home this Christmas.

Winter roads can be slick and dangerous. Take your time at rail crossings!

It takes more than a mile to stop a train.

According to preliminary FRA stats, there were 793 trespasser casualties in the US from January-September 2018.

Objects on tracks can shoot off and hit you.

Thinking it would be fun to put a coin on the tracks? Think again. It's dangerous - here's why.
