It is my understanding that the lights are supposed to come on before the gates start coming down. Tell that to the crossing at Hansford. I have damaged my vehicle due to the consistantly malfunctioning crossing gates.

Paul, you live in this area, you should know the signals are not always spot on perfect. Even if the lights are not on to begin with. If you use common sense and look before crossing, you will be able to see the arms moving.

You can see the arms move during the day, but at night, you cannot. Running off the edge of the crossing to avoid the gate hitting my car done about $1,200.00 of damage.
