    And put your cell phone down while driving. The call can wait and certainly don't text and drive. The consequences are the same as above.

    What about people who get hit by a train when the train is at fault? (Yes the train can be at fault sometimes)
    I was lucky to walk away from a train accident. Worse ride down the tracks I ever encountered.

    A serious accident is one that money won't fix.

    Maybe it's from a couple of years driving a school bus in the 1970's, but I still won't cross RR tracks without visually checking both ways, signal or not.

    Fortunatly good habits are as hard to break as bad ones .What always amazes me is how do you not seee a tain,I live on the bald prairie so Iknow that is different ,just slow down and pay attention,one less load of grain or water or oil won't be as big a deal as a funeral.

    sadly trains are never at fault people are now walking on live rail wearing headphones etc and being killed
    If you are crossing tracks look both ways it cant hurt
    I have witnessed the carnage of train-vehicle collisions and its a helpless feeling as you know its going to happen and there is nothing you can do but hang on
