“See Tracks? Think Train!” Campaign Wins MarCom Awards

WASHINGTON, DC, November 13, 2014 Operation Lifesaver, Inc.’s (OLI) “See Tracks? Think Train! safety public service advertising (PSA) campaign has been awarded Platinum, Gold and Honorable Mention MarCom Awards for 2014, OLI President and CEO Joyce Rose announced today. The campaign itself won a Platinum MarCom Award; campaign billboards and posters won Gold Awards; and the TV and radio PSAs, along with the campaign microsite, received Honorable Mention Awards.

“The ‘See Tracks? Think Train!’ campaign is aimed at making safety an automatic habit for people when they are driving or walking near train tracks,” Rose said.   “Operation Lifesaver is grateful to our partners at the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Association of American Railroads for their support of this award-winning national campaign.”

The PSA campaign features bilingual television, radio, print and billboard advertisements aimed at educating drivers and pedestrians about rail safety, with messages aimed at trespass prevention, rail crossing safety, and reducing distraction at train platforms.
