Help improve rail safety as a motorist and as a pedestrian!

Rail safety is extremely important for anyone who comes into contact with railroads.

We want to remind you that you can improve rail safety in many ways as both a motorist and a pedestrian.


  • Be prepared to stop at the crossing
  • Slow down, look both ways and listen
  • Understand the signs and warning devices
  • Check that you have enough room on the other side of the tracks for your vehicle to cross safely
  • Never race a train
  • Never stop on tracks


  • Stay alert – it is easy to get distracted, especially by phones, music and conversation
  • Stop, look both ways and listen
  • Follow all signs and instructions
  • Cross tracks only at designated pedestrian or at grade crossings
  • Cross quickly and never stop on the tracks
  • Never cross the tracks when the signal indicates that a train is coming. Flashing lights and ringing bells mean STOP and wait for the train to pass. NEVER walk under or around pedestrian gates.
