UFVRD:  RCMP and CN Police are reaching out to motorists and pedestrians at railway crossings across the Upper Fraser Valley to promote rail safety.


Designated Railway Safety Week, September 22 – 28, 2019, RCMP and CN Police officers will be found at railway crossings throughout the educational campaign to engage motorists and pedestrians with the aim of changing attitudes and behaviours towards rail safety.


“Road safety remains a priority of the UFVRD,” says Corporal Mike Pfeifer of the Chilliwack RCMP.  “Working together with our law enforcement partners our goal is to prevent injuries and fatalities along the railway tracks in our communities.”


Railway crossing safety tips:


  • Slow down when approaching a railway crossing.
  • Do not cross the track until the rail crossing lights stop flashing, the bell stops ringing and the train has passed.
  • If a train is coming never race a train to a crossing.
  • Never walk, cycle, or drive along railway tracks.
