Railway crossing incidents triple year-over-year in June
Not one Canadian was killed while trespassing on railway tracks in June 2023—down from four fatalities in the same month the year before. That’s the kind of statistic we like to see. Unfortunately, three Canadians were killed in railway crossing incidents—three times as many as in June 2022.
Operation Lifesaver’s goal is to get these numbers down to zero—because we know that every railway crossing and trespassing-related death is preventable. Through campaigns like #STOPTrackTragedies
, we work to educate Canadians of all ages about the risks associated with railway crossings, tracks, and trains. But if we’re going to reach our goal, we need your help.
Don’t be another statistic. Keep off train tracks and railway property, always obey railway warning signs and signals, and heed Operation Lifesaver’s motto: “Look. Listen. Live.”
If we work together, we can #STOPTrackTragedies. To learn more lifesaving tips, check out the rail safety resources
