Fear, sadness, anger and frustration. Those are just a few of the emotions I feel when I see or hear about children playing on railroad tracks. Take a look at what we saw on the security cameras at Highland Station yesterday:
I won’t elaborate on why this is dangerous and illegal. But if you’re a parent, please think of your own children. Staying safe around railroad tracks is an important lesson for the whole family.
At Capital Metro we have a great community involvement team, and since long before MetroRail even started, our staffers have flooded schools up and down the rail line with rail safety materials. They’d be happy to schedule a presentation for your school, neighborhood or organization. See our rail safety page for details.
