Rail Safety Week

Some tips for anyone caught hanging around the tracks.

CN Police Constable Cynthia Stotz says it's Rail Safety Week and is reminding people that walking along the tracks is illegal.

Stotz says people should contact the railway if they see continually crossing the tracks.

An identifier at each cross-way that will tell you the name and number of the railway.

Stotz adds that ATV's and snowmobiles can damage the tracks and are at risk of being hit because it can be difficult to hear an oncoming train over the sound of the engine.
