A look back as Rail Safety Week wraps up
With another successful Rail Safety Week winding down, let's take a look back at the impact our efforts have made in the 30+ years we've been in existence. Thanks to the dedication of our partners and volunteers, crossing accidents have been reduced by 80% and trespassing accidents by 62%, since 1980. Year-over-year, we have seen these numbers decline. With the spike in incidents in the first quarter 2012, now more than ever we must be diligent in educating Canadians to stay off and stay alive.
We are proud of the progress that we've made, but our mission will not be complete until both numbers sit at zero. Thank you for your continued support - in sharing our rail safety message with everyone you know, you can help us make railway related deaths and injuries a thing of the past! Tell your friends and family - these tracks are for trains, not people!
