Operation Lifesaver

The “Close Calls” blog feature is back for June 2015! By posting these clips, I hope to make the general public more aware of railroad-related accidents as viewed through actual near-fatal video at grade crossings. These video clips will hopefully show viewer(s) how complete disregard for safety could cost one his/her life.

Safety first,
Tom

New blog feature: “Close Calls”

Operation Lifesaver

Operation Lifesaver

Operation Lifesaver, the largest and most-influential rail safety organization in the United States, has inspired me to create a new post category here at Rock on Trains. Operation Lifesaver was founded by the Union Pacific Railroad in the early 70’s; its mission is to end collisions, deaths and injuries at highway grade crossings and on rail properties.

“Close Calls” is the name of the blog post category I’m introducing today. Close Calls has been created to make the general public more aware of railroad-related accidents as viewed through actual near-fatal video at grade crossings. These video clips will hopefully show viewer(s) how complete disregard for safety could cost one his/her life.

Safety first,
Tom

Close Call #1 — Man jumps barriers at train crossing
