Shocking video launched to stop rail trespassing

Launching a new video, the VRT's first TV channel Eén and the rail infrastructure company Infrabel have joined forces to stop members of the public from rail trespassing. Too many people still cross a level crossing when the light is on red, or walk illegally on or along the rail tracks to make a shortcut. Actors of the popular Eén soap series "Thuis" (Home) cooperated in this video, including youngster Joren, because it is often youngsters crossing the line and putting their life in danger. 

Last year had over 800 cases of rail trespassing; 11 people got killed as a result (9 at a level crossing and 4 while walking on the tracks). The hundreds of incidents are also causing considerable delays for passengers.
