Railway crossing incidents up in March
Railway crossing and trespassing incidents are tragic—especially when you consider how preventable they are.
Operation Lifesaver’s mission is to curb these tragedies by educating people of all ages about the hazards associated with tracks and trains. To gauge whether our message is getting through—and whether it’s making a difference—we look to the railway crossing and trespassing incident data published by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada every month.
Don’t be a statistic—be rail safe
Last month, two Canadians lost their lives in railway crossing incidents and another five were seriously injured—a significant increase compared to March 2021. Increases like these tell us that there’s more work to be done when it comes to educating Canadians about rail safety. But we could use your help.
You can help us save lives by ensuring that you and your loved ones follow the rail safety rules
. You can also volunteer with our Rail Safety Ambassador
program. The program recruits Canadians across the country to help spread the word about rail safety. Creating this network of rail safety supporters is critical to increasing awareness and saving lives.
