POCATELLO â€” Stopping at railroad crossings when a train approaches was the lesson "Idaho Operation Lifesaver" wanted motorists to learn. Motorist safety was first and foremost as Union Pacific (UP) conducted "Officer On A Train" last Friday.
"We're only trying to save their life," said Patrolman Akilah Lacy of the Pocatello Police Department.
During the "Officer On A Train" enforcement effort, one officer is placed in the lead locomotive of a train as a spotter. This officer observed traffic approaching the highway rail intersections as the train proceeded down the tracks.
