Riding a snowmobile on a railroad's right of way is illegal and dangerous, and a number of snowmobile riders aren't heeding warnings around railway tracks, said Greater Sudbury Police Service.
Police have responded to a number of complaints where snowmobilers are driving on railway tracks.
There are many hazards associated with trespassing on railway property or disregarding warning signs and signals, according to a news release.
The message is simple: Steer clear of train tracks.
Trains can travel on any track, in either direction, at any time.
Snowmobilers are encouraged to ride on approved trails only. Should a snowmobiler need to cross a railway track, do so only at designated locations.
