A nonprofit group is launching a public service campaign to promote safety near railroad tracks.

The group Operation Lifesaver is promoting the campaign titled "See Tracks? Think Train!" to highlight behavior that puts people at risk.

It comes following a spike in injuries and deaths on or near tracks last year.

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, 908 pedestrians were injured or killed while walking on or near railroad tracks last year. That's up 7.7 percent from 2012.

The campaign features television, radio and print ads, as well billboards.
