In Connecticut and across the country, many people think that it is okay to go onto railroad tracks and take photos.  It is not.  It’s not only illegal (trespassing), but it’s very dangerous.  Please view, No Shot is Worth It – PSA for filming on the tracks.

Photography around the tracks  and Stop Track Tragedies

There have been incidents were trucks have been struck at rail crossings.  Operation Lifesaver has recently produced a new public service announcement for truck safety for dump, concrete and garbage trucks. Please view - Truck Driver Safety

What should one do if there is an emergency at a crossing?  Operation Lifesaver has a short video - Find the Blue and White – Emergency Notification System Sign video -
