All Drivers Should Know
Trains Always Have the Right of Way
Never try to beat a train by going around downed gates
It takes at least a mile for a freight train going 55 mph to stop
Trains are always CLOSER and FASTER than they appear
Multiple Tracks Could Mean Multiple Trains. Always wait for the gates to fully rise before proceeding. It could save your life
Operation Lifesaver, Inc driver safety information
Play it safe, slow down at railroad crossings! This image shows three tracks on the crossbuck. Multiple tracks mean multiple trains! Wait for the gates to be completely up and the lights to go off before proceeding in this situation.
Advanced Warning Sign
When you see the yellow and black Advanced Warning sign it means you’re approaching a railroad crossing and you need to slow down.
