Farm Rail Safety PSA

Watch our public service announcement for farmers and farm machine operators, available in 30 and 15 second versions in English and Spanish.

Know what to do near railroad tracks. Every 3 hours in the U.S., a person or vehicle is hit by a train.
If you don't fit, don't commit! Make sure your equipment can completely clear the railroad tracks before starting across.

Only cross at designated crossings.

Watch our PSA for Low Clearance Vehicles
Always expect a train. Trains can run on any track, at any time, in either direction.

It can take the average freight train traveling at 55 mph a mile or more to stop.
