    Train/car accidents are a big inconvenience for a lot of people. I wish drivers were less selfish.

    People are so stupid. I don't feel sorry for this person not one bit. Follow the laws like everyone else-they are there for your safety. The arms are there for a reason and I think people that go around them are perfect examples of Darwinism in the human race.

    Some people are just so stupid. There's a reason that the arms come down.. They don't just come down for you to go around.. It means stop here... When people just don't abide by traffic laws and end up getting hit by a train their licence should be taken right away and be suspended for 2 years. Bet they won't go around another....bet they'll learn their lesson then.. If they were lucky enough to survive the first incident
