Operation Lifesaver turns 50. In North Dakota, farm vehicles are a frequent sight on our roadways, and they often cross railroad tracks, both on public and private land. This year Operation Lifesaver is releasing new resources in hopes of helping farmers and farm machine operators to stay safe and avoid incidents around trains and railroad tracks.

Federal statistics show that a vehicle or person is hit by a train every three hours in the US. During Rail Safety Week Operation Lifesaver of the Dakotas, and its partners are raising awareness of the importance of railroad safety practices.
