Metrolinx is voicing concern about a “marked increase” in the volume of trespassers along its rail network during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Director of Transit Safety Bill Grodzinski believes social media is a big factor, as young risk-takers climb bridges to capture photos and “risk their lives in doing so.”
Grodzinski says the Credit River bridge is an especially frequent location.
He says that special constables have been called to the Mississauga bridge more than 40 times, giving at least 100 warnings and laying 15 charges this year.
Grodzinski adds that they had a “near miss on the tracks in Niagara Falls involving a family with two young children,” just this past weekend.
