WHAT:
Media representatives are invited to ride in the cab of a locomotive with Union Pacific Police and local law enforcement officers, while they observe motorists’ behavior at railroad grade crossings.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT: Freight trains traveling 55 miles per hour take more than a mile to stop, which is why drivers are urged to stop in designated areas when railroad signals, flashers and gates indicate a train is approaching. The event is part of Union Pacific’s Crossing Accident Reduction Education and Safety (UP CARES) program, which brings together communities in a collaborative and caring effort to promote railroad crossing and pedestrian safety.

 

Officers riding inside the locomotive will observe motorist behavior at railroad crossings and dispatch officers positioned nearby, if motorists ignore signals and warnings. Additionally, officers will be looking for pedestrians crossing or walking on the tracks.

WHERE: On February 12, the train will travel between E Sam Houston Parkway North and Oates Road in Houston. On February 14, the train will travel between Cravens Road and South Gessner Road in Missouri City.

WHEN:  February 7, 2018, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

              February 14, 2018, 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
