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!
