• Obey all signage and warning signals when approaching the railroad tracks. Flashing red lights mean STOP – a train is approaching!
  • Don’t try to go around the gates as they are lowering, whether driving, riding a bicycle or walking. Wait until the lights have stopped flashing and the gates are fully raised before crossing.
  • Cross the tracks only at designated areas; remove headphones and refrain from cellphone use to determine if it is safe to cross. Crossing anywhere else is trespassing and is illegal.
  • Do not stop your car on the railroad tracks. If you do get trapped on the tracks, GET OUT and call the 1-800 number on the blue sign at the crossing. If you cannot see the sign, call 911 immediately.
