MTA launches 'keep off tracks' campaign
It's a sensitive subject at the MTA, which was rocked by the deaths of two teenagers who wandered onto its light rail tracks last July and were run over by a train a train that was going in a direction they apparently didn't suspect.
The theme of the campaign is: "Any track, any direction, any time." Marylanders can expect to see the message in print ads, brochures and on television and to hear it on radio. The ad campaign goes in hands with other measures MTA took after the fatalities to prevent trespassing on its tracks and to warn of possible intrusions. They include changes in signage, reporting requirements and alert systems.
