How to not get hit by a train

Central Florida, it’s time you learn how to not get hit by a train!

Every collision at a grade crossing is preventable. Whether you’re driving, biking, or walking near the tracks, by staying alert and taking simple precautions you can keep yourself and others safe. It’s important to remember that train tracks are not a playground, photo studio, walking path, or recreation area. Train tracks are private property, and crossing at unmarked areas, or walking on the tracks, is extremely dangerous and a criminal offense. Share your safety knowledge with others, lead by example, and together, we can save lives.

It’s easy to keep yourself and others safe by simply avoiding distractions and paying attention to your basic senses when approaching train tracks. Watch our “How To: Not Get Hit By a Train” 3-part video series!

Do not stop on or walk along the tracks, and make sure your vehicle is not hanging over the rails.



Gates are there for your safety. Trains can approach quickly from either direction at any time.



Be aware of your surroundings. Put the phone away and pause the music for a few seconds
to cross the tracks safely.
