Caltrain safety awareness continued

It is disappointing that some people continues to get killed by ignoring warning bells, flashing lights, and lowered gates and trying to cross the tracks. Causalities like these are unnecessary. These incidents take an emotional toll on the engineers and conductors, and cause passengers to miss their appointments. Is it worth risking your life to save 30 seconds?

Above is an Australian public service announcement on train safety.

Even for someone who is deaf or other hearing difficulties, there’s no excuse because flashing lights and lowered gates provide a visual warning. Of course everyone should always look both ways before crossing the tracks.
