Don’t Do It On The Train Tracks

That’s the last sentence in this report from the Today Show:

The rails are not playground. Mr. Rossen is absolutely right when he says that trains can sneak up on you.  I’ve been around trains most of my live and I experienced first hand.  Yet there are people doing stuff like this.

Consider that I shot this video the same day that those two people were playing with that water bottle.

The railroads keep trying to tell people not to be stupid.  Yet nobody listens.

A train can trash a car in seconds and what happens to somebody hit by one is never pretty.  Yet people don’t seem to understand just how powerful trains are. Two weeks and yet, here we are again.

There are plenty of dumb ways to die.
