Trespassing on train tracks proves deadly in Canada in April

The month of April we hosted Operation Lifesaver’s 2017 Rail Safety Week, and unfortunately it also saw several fatalities and serious injuries in Canada due to trespassing on railway tracks and property. Whether it’s a shortcut over the tracks, or taking a stroll to listen to tunes, trespassing on railway tracks is never a good idea. In fact, it could be fatal. Please, don’t take the chance and take a shortcut on the tracks — cross only at designated crossings! Remember: your life could be cut short by a split-second decision to trespass.   Railway statistics
