Scare Viewers Safe

Over the past decade, more than 85 per cent of all rail-related deaths and injuries in Canada occurred as a result of motor collisions at railway crossings or trespassing on railway property. Virtually all of these incidents could have been avoided. Look. Listen. Live. is our way of trying to prevent these incidents from happening in the future.

Look. Listen. Live. is a public-awareness campaign to get Canadians thinking—and acting—differently around railway crossings, property and trains.
The campaign uses virtual reality (VR) technology to “scare viewers safe” by giving them the shocking experience of being hit by a train.
See for yourself how fast an incident with a train can happen, and help us to spread the word by using the hashtags #LOOKLISTENLIVE and #SHARETHESCARE.
