Earlier this week a car pulled in front of an oncoming train. We’ve all heard of such things before but never in New Orleans’ City Park or with the childrens’ City Park train!http://blog.nola.com/interact/2011/10/head-scratcher_of_the_day_city.html
We know that injuries and fatalities that occur at highway-rail crossings or on railroad property are a real, but often preventable, problem. Few people realize that in America, a person or vehicle is hit by a train roughly every three hours, and that’s a reality we’re determined to change. Welcome to Operation Lifesaver, a non-profit organization providing public education programs to prevent collisions, injuries and fatalities on and around railroad tracks and highway-rail grade crossings.
