Union Pacific Railroad brought its UP CARES program to Waco on Thursday to promote railroad crossing safety and educate the community.

The railroad worked with Waco Police Department officers to warn and cite motorists who did not obey traffic rules at downtown railroad intersections.

UP CARES wants to increase awareness that railroad right of way is only safe when motorists and pedestrians use designated crossings and obey all track warnings.

The company reports crossing accidents on Union Pacific Railroad tracks have decreased by nearly 7 percent from 2012 to 2013.
