Will You Get Nailed?

Website Information

Will you get nailed? debuts on internet

Teenagers, at an age where, of course, they already know everything in life, are sometimes difficult to reach with the Operation Lifesaver railroad safety message.  Still, teens driving vehicles are most vulnerable to vehicle crashes -- sometimes with a train.

Now, a teen website, www.willyougetnailed.com attempts to familiarize young drivers with the serious consequences if their vehicle (4,000 pounds) tries to beat a train (12 million pounds) at the crossing. Young adults are also killed and seriously injured walking or recreational vehicle riding among other activities while trespassing on private railroad property.  The new website includes a quiz and information about the inherent dangers at crossings and along railroad right of ways.
