Valdosta Police begin Operation Lifesaver

August 28, 2007

Valdosta - Norfolk Southern wants you to be safe at railroad crossings after an unusually high number of train versus car crashes in South Georgia over the last few months.

Tuesday, they worked with Valdosta Police to educate people on train safety.

Police handed out safety pamphlets to drivers passing over a busy railway on West Hill Avenue.

They say the best way to avoid a collision is to expect a train on a track at any time, never drive around the gates and don't misjudge the train's speed.

You can stop, they cannot.

They hope the tips will help keep drivers and train workers safe.
