Funny and Effective Video Warns People (Again) Not to Take Photos on Railroad Tracks

No matter how many times people are warned, they still seem to think taking photos on the railroad tracks is a good idea. It's not. It's dangerous and stupid and could lead to someone getting killed.

While this topic is nothing new, we should never stop educating and reminding photographers of the importance of making safer choices to protect their own lives as well as their models and assistants. The humorous and effective video below is part of Operation Lifesaver for rail safety education and while it may present the topic in an entertaining manner, the message is strong and clear: no photo is worth risking lives for.

Sure, train tracks may look like a cool for a photo op but sooner or later the train will arrive and you don’t want to be standing in the way when it does.
