CANADA: The Operation Lifesaver Canada safety campaign has designed a virtual-reality interactive video to train people from the agricultural sector in how to approach level crossings safely.

‘Train to Drive allows drivers to make choices in real time around virtual railway tracks and trains, and to see the results — good and tragic — in the safety of that VR environment’, said Sarah Mayes, National Director of Operation Lifesaver Canada.

Last year there were 174 collisions at road-rail crossings in Canada, with 28 people killed and 29 seriously injured.
