Sound and Avoiding Collisions
Hearing the sounds of a horn, screeching tires, train whistles, and sirens can alert you to danger when driving. Sometimes you can hear a car, motorcycle or train that is in your blind spot.
The video above is from a collision where the view of an approaching train is blocked by railcars and a dirt pile. Had the driver of the pickup heard the train's rumble or horn blast the collision might have been avoided.
