Pedestrian Safety - Operation Lifesaver

Stay Off, Stay Away, Stay Alive

Walking or playing on railroad tracks or the right-of-way on either side of the tracks is trepassing. It is illegal and can be deadly.

Find A Safer Place

Railroad tracks, trestles, yards, and equipment are private property. Never walk, jog, fish or hunt from railroad tracks. If you are found on this property you can be arrested or fined.

Crossbuck Sign

This sign tells you trains run at this location. Cross tracks at the crossbuck sign only, not anywhere along the tracks.

Use Only Designated Crossings

The only legal and safe place to cross railroad tracks is at a designated public crossing with a crossbuck, flashing red lights or a gate. Crossing at any other location is illegal.

If You See a Train Coming, WAIT !

If you see flashing lights or a lowering gate, it means a train is approaching. Do not proceed until the gates go completely up and the lights go off. It is illegal to go around lowered gates.

Stay Off | Stay Away | Stay Alive
