“The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) in New Orleans recently launched a new public safety campaign titled Tracks Can Kill: Live Outside the Lines. The campaign is specifically targeted to pedestrians, drivers, joggers, cyclists and all who encounter the streetcars on a regular basis. The overall goal of the campaign is to educate the public about the safest ways to coexist with streetcars in an effort to eliminate all preventable accidents.”
Most New Orleans runners regularly log miles on the streetcar tracks along St. Charles and throughout the city–the idea of forfeiting this turf is a subject most people have strong feelings about. What do you think about running on the tracks?
