Anyone choosing to walk on or near railroad tracks could face a tragic consequence. Last year, 433 people died and 411 were injured while trespassing on railroad property throughout the United States, according to the Federal Railroad Administration.
People who enter railroad property can be arrested for violating trespassing laws. They could serve jail time and/or have to pay a fine. Do not become a statistic; stay away from railroad tracks during this hunting season.
