Awareness measures

Operation Lifesaver Canada will launch two new Train to Drive virtual-reality (VR) videos to coincide with ILCAD 2019. The videos are specifically designed to teach professional – bus and truck – drivers how to safely approach rail crossings, and what to do in the case of an emergency (such as stalling on the tracks). These videos complement two other VRs aimed at inexperienced drivers, which OL Canada launched earlier this year.
