The right and wrong way to handle railroad crossings.

The right and wrong way to handle railroad crossings.

Today I was stopped behind a car at an intersection near a railroad crossing. This genius stopped past the stop line right under the gate, but not quite on the track. The railroad crossing is for the commuter train that comes by every half hour to one hour. Since it was evening rush, there was a good chance that the train would come by at any time.

Well, Mr. Genius decides to creep forward and stops on the tracks because he thinks traffic is moving up ahead. Yep, I seriously hoped I witness Darwinism at work. He will only wipe himself off the face of the earth because a Honda Civic is no match for a commuter train. The train will rip through the Civic like tin foil. Fortunately for him, the train didn’t come by.
