At railroad crossings, do you ignore the gates and signals and make a dash for it? Do you walk along railroad tracks? If you think you’ll be able to get out of danger in time, it’s time to retrain your brain.
Walking along tracks is both dangerous and illegal.
Some people never hear it coming.
By the time an engineer sees you, there may not be time to stop the train.
No shortcut, no selfie, no sneaking around the gate is worth it.
