Encountering a Railroad Crossing - Comedy Class


Law requires motorists to yield the right of way to trains. It is also against the law to cross tracks if a train is visible or to drive around gates that have been lowered at a railroad crossing. If the gates are down and no train is coming, the road is closed.

Railroad-Comedy-ClassWhen you encounter a railroad crossing:

  • Reduce speed and look both ways as you approach intersection.
  • Turn down your stereo and listen for a train.
  • If crossing arms have been lowered, or red lights are flashing stop.
  • Stopping on the tracks is never legal and is extremely dangerous.
  • Be sure all tracks are clear before crossing – there may be more than one set. The following animation involves a bus that had to pass multiple sets of tracks and failed to stop at the intersection. Busses are required by law to stop at railroad crossings.
