There have been 73 runway incursion incidents in the first three months of 2006, up five from the same period in 2005. Don't let yourself become one of them.
Brush up on your runway signs and markings before your next flight by using the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's Runway Flashcards. There are three handy formats to choose from: an online PowerPoint presentation, a downloadable PowerPoint, or a printable PDF document where you cut out the cards.
The front of each card displays a typical airport sign or pavement marking. The back not only explains the marking, but provides what action the pilot should take. See AOPA Online.
