VANCOUVER, B.C. — There will be a rail safety blitz held today in the Lower Mainland to help educate drivers and passengers on the dangers associated with the railway.
Interested participants will be able to get a first-hand view of what the conductors see, and will learn how to avoid accidents at rail crossings.
The safety blitz is being put on by Direction 2006, Operation Lifesaver and West Coast Express. Fifteen officers from five police forces will also be taking part.
The demonstration will take place at commuter stations and highway/railway crossings between Mission and Waterfront Station during the morning commute.
The organizers say they hope the awareness campaign will save lives in the long run.
