Your Life is Worth The Wait

Whether it’s making curfew or making it to an interview on time, crossing the train tracks to save a few minutes is a life or death decision. If the red lights are flashing and the crossing arms are down, a train is coming, even if you can’t see or hear it. Trains can’t stop, but you can. Watch the video below and Make Your Choice.

Always expect a train.

  • Trains can cross from either direction at anytime.
  • Slow down and look both ways before crossing railroad tracks.
  • Stop for approaching trains. Saving a few minutes is not worth risking your life.
  • Ensure there is enough space for your vehicle to clear the railroad tracks before crossing.
  • Look out for crossings with multiple rail lines. Check every set of railroad tracks before driving across.
  • If your vehicle stalls on railroad tracks, notify Union Pacific by calling the phone number posted at the crossing. Dispatchers will try to stop approaching trains. You can also call 911.
