See Tracks, Think Train!

See Tracks, Think Train!

(Posted June 2, 2015)

How many times have you taken a shortcut across the tracks to get to your station?

Hopefully, the answer is never!

But for some of you that is not the case, so we want to remind you:

When Walking

•Never take a shortcut by walking across the train tracks. Always use designated walkways and crossings.

•Never walk, run or cycle under or around a lowered crossing gate!

•Wait for crossing gates to go up and the lights to stop flashing before proceeding across the tracks. (A second train may be obstructed
from view.)

In Your Car

Don’t attempt to cross tracks unless there is room for your vehicle on the other side. Don’t get stuck in the crossing!

•Prepare to stop when you see the crossing gate lights flashing and gates lowering.

•Wait for the gates to rise completely and the lights to stop flashing before proceeding across the tracks.

•Never drive around lowered gates!

We bring you these monthly rules because—on foot, in your car, or wherever you are on our territory--your safety is our first priority.
