Be Rail Safe
From September 19-25, Rail Safety Week reminds people of the importance of always being safe around trains, tracks and rail crossings.
This year we’re encouraging transit riders to be aware of their surroundings and to minimize distractions when in the presence of LRT crossings and tracks:
- Cross at a designated spot and pay attention while crossing. LRT trains can come from either direction at any time.
- Avoid/minimize distractions - such as texting or listening to loud music - that could prevent you from seeing or hearing an oncoming train.
- Be vigilant at all rail crossings. Not every crossing has gates, bells and lights to warn you of an oncoming train. Look both ways and if the warning lights are flashing, do not cross.
By crossing responsibly, and being aware of LRT tracks, we can all do our part to avoid preventable injuries and incidents.
