OPERATION LIFESAVER-Grade Crossing Mishaps!

Over the years, whether filming railroads, or simply being an innocent bystander, I have witnessed numerous near-misses at grade crossings. Whether they are motorists, bicyclists, or pedestrians, people decide not to obey the law and put their lives, and the lives of others at risk. It is amazing that someone would rather save a  few seconds than wait for a train to pass. I have posted a few examples of what I have seen over the years. Feel free to share your stories and comment.

Worse to me is shooting through the crossing opposite of the oncoming train…if a vehicle proceeds too late, the photographer or at least his video equipment will be wiped out!
