Safety

Stepping over the line can be deadly – when it’s our property line. In fact, it can be the deadliest line to cross. In North America, more people are killed each year from trespassing on railroad property than crossing accidents. This is a statistic that we, quite simply, cannot live with.

To find and apply solutions for the railway right-of-way trespassing problem, we work hand in hand with local municipalities.

Our most successful solutions, which require a combination of public awareness and enforcement, involve local police, neighborhood groups, private businesses and community newspapers — helping maximize our chances for success.

There were 59 trespassing accidents in 2016.
