Near-collision reporting program helps GO Transit crack down on aggressive drivers


GO Transit recently launched a program designed to enforce crossing safety for drivers and pedestrians.

The Near Collision Reporting Program enables the agency’s train and trackwork crews to record information about drivers and pedestrians who disobey railway crossings signals and signs. The information helps GO Transit Enforcement or railway police identify violators. Registered vehicle owners receive a near-collision notice informing them about the details of a violation.

The program is a cooperative effort between GO Transit, Canadian National Railway Co., Canadian Pacific Railway, Pacific Northern Rail Contractors Inc., Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Operation Lifesaver.
