Look.Listen.Live! A message from CN Rail

CNsmart2

Rail Safety is a core value at CN and CN Police work every day to minimize the risk of Collisions on the railway network.  To be proactive in your community we would like to share some safety points and reminders to avoid falling in that trap of being complacent around the railways.

 

  • Use designated crossings.
  • Obey All Railway signs and signals.
  • Slow down, look both ways and listen for approaching trains; proceed only if it safe to do so.
  • Stay off the tracks and railway property, trespassing on railway property is both dangerous and illegal.   In Saskatchewan you could be charged under the Trespass to Property Act 3(1)(a) $250.00.
  • Trains can overhang the tracks by as much as one metre on each side.
  • Stay Alert. Keep your focus on driving and don’t be distracted by electronic devices.
  • Adjust your driving to the road conditions.

 

Last year in North America there were over 3,400 collisions with trains, resulting in over 2,200 serious injuries.

An average freight train weighs 5.5 million kg.  Compare that to a car, which weighs around, 1,375 kg there is no comparison. 

 

In case of an emergency, motorists or pedestrians are encouraged to contact the CN Police Emergency Number, 1800-465-9239 which is posted at every CN public crossing on our network.  In addition to the phone number, there will be the subdivision name and mileage point.  When this information is provided to CN dispatch they will know where you are across our vast network.   This phone number is monitored 24/7. 1888-465-9239.  Or you can call 911.  For any public Inquiries related to CN  1 888-888-5909.
