The safety of our people and our communities always comes first.

Locomotive video and voice recorders can help us understand why an accident happened. Better still, they can stop that accident before it occurs.

The safety of our people and our communities always comes first. That’s why we want to make the safest railway in North America even safer. Locomotive voice and video recorders, commonly referred to as inward-facing cameras, can help us understand why an accident happened. Better still, it can help stop that accident before it occurs.

Existing legislation allows for the installation of video and voice recorders inside the cab of a locomotive, but prohibits railways from reviewing and using the footage for proactive safety use. Changing the legislation and regulations to allow the use of video and voice recordings will prevent accidents, further protect communities and possibly save lives.

CP is ready to improve safety with video and voice recording technology in every locomotive. But for that to happen, we need federal legislation in place.

Inward-facing cameras work.

More than 20,000 transit buses in the U.S. were set up with inward-facing cameras, with a measurable and positive impact. Over four years, there was a dramatic improvement, including a 40% reduction in bus collisions and a 30% reduction in passenger injuries.
