The railway isn't a playground

Unfortunately, last year people were again involved in accidents along the track system due to ignorance and recklessness, some tragically were fatal. It's particularly common for teenagers to put their lives in danger by being imprudent and with the wrong dares. ÖBB-Infrastruktur is therefore focusing more on education on different levels.

Be safe!

Here you will find all the information and material for our safety campaign.

The four key safety messages

  • Crossing tracks is dangerous to life!
  • Stations aren't a playground! Stay behind the safety line at the station!
  • Traction current is high voltage – even being near it puts your life in danger! Therefore never climb parked wagons or trains!
  • At railway crossings, watch for the red light and/or approaching trains!
