<div><b>Page Content:</b> <p>Canadian Pacific has deployed extra crews to patrol and repair dozens of level crossing gates damaged by high winds in Alberta today.* Motorists are asked to take additional precautions when approaching level crossings.</p>
<p>Motorists are required to yield to trains approaching or occupying railroad grade crossings at streets and highways. Please remember these important safety pointers:</p>
<li>Stop at the crossing, look for a train, listen for a train whistle, and proceed only when it is safe to do.</li>
<li>Always be prepared to stop when approaching train tracks. </li>
<li>Do not attempt to drive around the crossing gates if they have been lowered. </li>
<li>It takes 1 to 1.5 miles for a train to come to a stop after the brakes are applied. </li>
<li>If your car stalls on the tracks, get out, move off the tracks and call 911</li></ul>
