Six B.C. Railway Crossings in Canada’s 25 Most Dangerous

A new investigation by the CBC has revealed that six of Canada’s top 25 most dangerous railway crossings, exactly 24%, are located in British Columbia, more than any other province. It’s also disproportional to the size of British Columbia’s share of the Canadian population, which sits at just over 13% as of the last federal census.

British Columbia’s most dangerous railway crossing, at Smith Crescent in Langley, has caused six accidents and claimed one life since 2002. No gates, flashing lights or warning signs are present to alert drivers and an awkwardly placed stop sign for a nearby adjacent highway leaves drivers of larger automobiles almost no choice but to inadvertently block the railway track.
