Level Crossing Safety Highlighted Following Truck and Train Collision
There has been a rise in the number of motorists including B-Double truck drivers failing to slow down and stop at rail level crossings.
It is more difficult for a train driver to stop a locomotive than it is for a car or truck to stop, with long freight trains traveling at 100km/hour taking 2km to come to a complete stop, after seeing the other vehicle failing to stop at the level crossing.
Pacific National released 2 videos showing incidents where drivers were unavoidably involved in 2 separate collisions when vehicles failed to stop at level crossings.
