If the State Police were to check on the driver. He probly is hard of hearing and also probly couldn't turn his head far enough to see the train.
After a certain age drivers shouldn't be allowed to renew their licenses by mail.
Also they should be checked to make sure they can turn their heads far enough to see traffic coming at them from the side.
I almost hit a old man the other day, he didn't even turn his head to see me coming. Good thing I wasn't going over the speed limit. Also he never even stopped at the stops sign.
