Glen Rock NJ, “I didn’t know it was illegal” A response we hear far too often from trespassers on the railroad tracks. Not only is walking on the railroad tracks / right of way illegal, it is extremely dangerous! This week is Rail Safety Week. Normally, in-person outreach and rail safety awareness events would take place. For 2020, Information will be shared virtually due to Covid-19. We encourage you to visit oli.org and our web page at police.njtransit.com/train. Make sure you are aware of important rail safety information. Remember, it can take upwards of a mile for a moving train to fully stop while in motion. Please stay safe and STAY OFF the tracks!

  1. It’s amazing in Ridgewood how many people jog and exercise on the tracks. That’s been going on for 30 years.

  2. I walk the tracks every day… No cars…
