They need to do something about the drivers, too. Last weekend, flew to Orlando to DJ a gig, from Thursday to Saturday while I was driven around, we almost got into six accidents. Fun things included:

People stopping for no reason in the middle of major streets / intersections
People changing / turning from the lane farthest from their turn
Stopping at on-ramps when there was acres of merge
Blowing through lights
Stopping at Green lights

If the trains get a squirrel, what do the roads get?
/Now in DC, which is statistically the worst in the country
//Florida proved that wrong

This is a lie.  There is no rail in Florida besides CSX.  CSX eat you.  CSX strong.  CSX no like competion.

Foamy curses you for ignoring his obvious superiority.

If it worked to turn some drunks web project into FARK ... why hell why not?

fta "Watch your tail and keep of the rail."

I have no idea what you're talking about

That is one demonic cracked out looking squirrel.

Trying to teach humans about the dangers of walkin' on the railroad, all the live-long day? Now that's comedy!

Next up, cats to promote highway safety.

Looks like a meth squirrel. So it's perfect

Was it one of the thousands of famous Florida State University squirrels?  (https://www.facebook.com/fsusquirrels )

Do you have the balls to beat a train?
2013-09-07 09:59:41 AM  
This makes perfect sense to me.  You want your mascot to make a connection with the intended audience on all levels, including the intellectual level.  Cletus: "That there squirrel says don't hit by trains."  Bubba: "Well then, I guess we shouldn't, cause squirrels are right smart critters."  Cletus: "Yeah, but they always be tellin' what not to do, like not drinkin' antifreeze."  Bubba: "You taint suppose to drink it?"  Cletus: "Well, not too much."

Meh, I still prefer Yarra Trams's skateboarding rhino safety campaign...

Looks more like a stoned cat.

Came here thinking maybe Pauly Shore had a new gig, leaving with much disappoint.
