Train Safety: Keeping Drivers Safe

Train Safety: Keeping Drivers Safe We all can use reminders about train safety, especially since one wrong move can be the difference between life and death.

  1. Trains always have the right of way, even over emergency vehicles.
  2. Freight trains don’t run on set schedules and scheduled passenger trains can change. So you should be prepared to encounter a train at any time on the tracks.
  3. Never stop on the tracks.
  4. Approaching trains are likely moving faster and are closer than you think.
  5. When near the tracks, always remain alert.

Stay focused on safety when around train tracks.  Keeping alert will help prevent tragic accidents.
