        I was wondering the same thing , if the driver was not alone some attempted murder charge should be added and removal of driving license for life !

      I suppose it would cost four times as much to make the gate twice as long, due to physics and math. What are the orange cones there for? Not helping! That "Do not stop on tracks" sign should be on the same pole as the right arrow sign. What does it say? 'Stay in lane'? What sign means 'There are two sets of tracks'? Should have had that.
