LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE IF STUCK ON THE TRACKS


1. Leave Your Vehicle if Stuck on The Tracks

A car can break down at any time—and if it happens on railway tracks, it could be deadly. If your vehicle stalls or gets stuck on the tracks, get yourself and all passengers out immediately. Move at least 30 metres away from the tracks to avoid being struck by debris if your vehicle is hit by a train. Contact the railway company immediately and let them know there is a vehicle on the tracks. Railway companies post their emergency numbers and crossing locations on a blue sign under the crossbuck or near the crossing. This information may also be displayed on a nearby signal house. If you don’t see a railway emergency number, call 911.
