Complete all four steps in order to successfully submit the form; (1) locate the hazard, (2) select the hazard type, (3) describe the hazard, and (4) provide your contact information. All required fields must be filled. Required fields are marked with an asterisk. A downloadable PDF of the hazard form is also available.

To notify the RTC about any other hazard (traffic conditions, railway matters, etc) please use our “contact us” form or email us.
