Rail Safety Campaign
Being rail safe is more than just smart…it's the law.
So remember . . .
- Cross tracks only at designated pedestrian or roadway crossings. Violating warning signs and signals is a misdemeanor that can result in steep fines, a moving violation, a point on your driving record, and increased insurance rates. (Fines and punishments are set by each county.)
- Never walk, bike, jog, or run down a train track. It is illegal and can result in significant fines and possible jail time. More importantly, it can lead to injury or death.
- Remember to look both ways when crossing railroad tracks. If you see a train coming, don’t try to beat it. It can take a train up to a mile to stop.
- Modern trains are quiet and can move forward or backward at any time without warning. Stay alert whenever you’re near railroad tracks.
