Safety on the rails

Safety at railroad crossings was on the minds of Lawrence officials Thursday as they boarded a Union Pacific train in North Lawrence to hear an Operation Lifesaver presentation from Kenny Walters, a Union Pacific engineer.

Well, well, well, the Journal-World finally wakes up. This newspaper has published photos in the recent past of persons violating tresspassing laws on railroad property, and I have taken them to task for this practice. I have pointed out the danger in this practice by having readers, sometimes young persons see this and think that they can play around railroad tracks. It is about time that the representatives of the two rail lines that service Lawrence make some approaches to the city leaders, this is a serious problem and many people die needlessly by ignoring safety around ralroad tracks. I hope Operation Lifesaver can make some impression on these people.
