Phones Can Wait
Texting while driving increases your chances of a collision by 23 times. Phones can wait, especially around railroad tracks.
New York Operation Lifesaver and the Long Island Railroad have joined together to alert people to the danger of cell-induced distracted driving. Texting accounts for less than half of cell induced distracted driving collisions, so even conversations can distract you from the road.
New York Operation Lifesaver and the Long Island Railroad TRACKS Safety Program provide free train safety presentations for schools, community groups, first responders, professional drivers and others. You may have seen New York Operation Lifesaver volunteers at train shows and community events. Over our first 50 years, Operation Lifesaver has helped reduce train collisions and fatalities by over 80%. Find out how to become an Operation Lifesaver volunteer, you may save someone’s life.
