Level crossings are dangerous

One of the few items where Irish Rail and I see eye to eye is the belief that level crossings are dangerous.

As an example (albeit overseas), this video (trigger warning – not for the sensitive) on shows a police car being hit by a train in the USA.

Colorado’s finest police officers had parked their car on the crossing during a traffic stop, in the dark and had placed a suspect in the car before it was hit by a train.
