I drive over 4 sets of train tracks daily, the number of drivers who stop in the middle of a crossing just boggles the mind. As do the ones who see the damn train coming, crew member is standing there with a flag, red crossing lights blinking and they still scoot across the track to save 3 minutes.

Somebody cut the guy off and he wound up stuck on the tracks. Cops got there and no charges were filed. No doubt the driver who caused the accident was also carrying illegally and smoking crack with no proof of citizenship....and not giving candy on Halloween..
