[CanPassRail] Grade Crossing Safety

 

The UK added a steady amber caution aspect to grade crossing lights, and a requirement for emergency telephones, after the Hixton accident in 1968.

This adds an extra five seconds to the total time between the first warning and the arrival of a train.

Would this extra time make a difference in Canada and the US?

The other thing that you see a lot in the UK is clear signs reminding road users: "A second train is approaching if gates stay down"

Full details of the UK crossing regulations can be found here:
