Operation Clear Track is the single largest rail-safety law-enforcement initiative in North America. Its goal is to reduce the number of railway crossing and trespassing incidents across Canada and the U.S. – incidents which tragically injure or kill more than 2,100 people each year.
Operation Clear Track takes place over two days during Rail Safety Week each September. Police in Canada and the U.S. work together to enforce rail crossing and trespassing laws, and distribute rail-safety tip sheets to drivers, pedestrians and cyclists across North America.
Please join this important initiative by completing the following form and registering your law enforcement agency for Operation Clear Track today.
This year’s Operation Clear Track initiative will take place on September 24th and 25th, 2019.
Participating police departments are asked to enforce rail safety laws at two railway crossings in their jurisdiction for two to three hours on one of these days. Departments can select the locations and hours of enforcement to best meet their scheduling and staffing needs.
Rail safety brochures will be shipped to each registered department for distribution during Operation Clear Track. All rail safety brochure orders must be placed by August 23, 2019 by filling out the form below.
Please report your 2019 Operation Clear Track activities using this form.
