“Don’t Shortcut Your Life,” LIRR Urges in New Public Safety Campaign Aimed at Stopping Trespassing on Railroad Tracks

MTA Long Island Rail Road is kicking off a new public safety campaign to remind communities in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn in close proximity to the Railroad that trespassing on LIRR tracks or Right-of-Way is never okay.

Trespassing is illegal, always dangerous and often fatal as the statistics for 2013 show. Thirty-five trespassers struck by LIRR trains last year and 28 died of their injuries, compared with 28 incidents and 18 fatalities in 2012.
