March 2018 a Deadly Month for Trespassing Incidents
March 2018 was not a good month when it comes to trespassing on railway tracks and property. Six Canadians lost their lives while trespassing on railway property and four others were seriously injured—an increase of more than 80 per cent compared with March 2017.
Remember, railway tracks are not meant for pedestrians. They’re for trains. Whether you’re tempted to walk along train tracks, use tracks as a shortcut, or climb on a train, it’s trespassing—and not only is it illegal, it can be deadly.
Don’t be another statistic. Stay clear of all railway property and tracks.
