CN Police coming to your community to spread the rail safety message

The CN Police would like to spread the rail safety message in your community!

Trespassing on railway tracks/ property is not only dangerous (as it can result in significant risk of injury and death), but it is illegal! Under the Railway Safety Act of Canada, section 26.1 it is an offense for any person to trespass on railway property and can result in a fine of $115.00.  The CN Police Service will be on patrol in your community and want to send a strong safety reminder to NOTtrespass onto railway tracks/property.  Be aware of your surroundings and look, listen, live!  

Statistics-In 2017, more than 222 accidents occurred in Canada, resulting in 72 fatalities and 44 serious injuries. 

Safety tips:

  • Only cross railway tracks as designated public/ pedestrian crossings. 
  • Obey the railway crossing control devices and do not attempt to beat the train!
  • Before walking across any railway crossing, look both ways, listen and only proceed over the crossing when it is safe to do so!
