[CanPassRail] re Level Crossings

 

There are lots of videos online showing a variety of grade crossing accidents. There is one tthat shows a freight train travelling 5 mph hitting a transport truck. It demolishes the truck and takes out the crossing signal and the railway signal. Another is video shot from an Amtrak engine at Canton, Michigan a few years ago. As the train approaches a crossing all is clear. At the last split second a car appears and is immediately hit, instantly killing five young people. That's sad. My favorite videos are from the Dallas LRT showing motorists turning right in front of a LRV and instantly getting hit. No deaths fortunately, but a lot of damage.
