Railroad crossings are among the most dangerous types of intersections. Accidents typically result from vehicles getting stuck or stalling, yet occasionally drivers attempt to cross the tracks even as warning lights and gates are active. Please use caution when crossing train tracks and if you are stuck or stall on the train tracks call 911 immediately.
