Driver Railroad Safety

CapMetro wants you to remain safe when behind the wheel. To avoid collision with a crossing train, we have some simple tips that save lives.

  1. Any time is train time! Keep in mind that trains move quickly and are a lot closer than you think. Remember to stop, look both ways and listen for a train before crossing.
  2. Don’t try to race the train. The train moves extremely fast and it takes more than a mile for a train to come to a full stop.
  3. Flashing red lights indicate a nearby train from either direction. Don’t cross the tracks until the lights have stopped flashing indicating it is safe.
  4. Don’t drive past the lowered bar: It’s illegal and can cause serious accidents.
  5. Never stop on the tracks. Make sure you can cross the tracks safely before driving over them.

It’s important to keep everyone’s safety in mind when you’re behind the wheel – yours, your fellow travelers, and anyone around you.
