See SAFETY ON OUR TRACKS!
Former Councilman Don Pearson provides this further advice from the Union Pacific Railroad:
Quote: “Unfortunately, many seniors, parents, and photographers choose to use rail tracks as a background. A practice that isn't only unsafe, it's also trespassing.
I'm reaching out to a few key cities with a request that you help us spread the word that tracks are for trains, not for photos. We don't want to do anything that creates the idea that train tracks are a good place to congregate, pose, or play.
We have a couple short videos that can easily be shared across a number of social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). Using the hashtag #TracksAreForTrains, our goal is to increase awareness and avoid any unfortunate memories. The videos can be found at this link: www.up.com/photosafety”
We live “by” the tracks. Let’s do everything we can so that no one in the City dies “on” the tracks!
