Idiots!

In Nottingham there's a level crossing known locally as Basford crossing. It runs east/west and there is a road north/south alongside the railway and both roads are cotrolled by lights at the crossing. It has a big yellow box all across it, yet as today cos traffic backs up beyond it peeps drive onto the box and get stuck on the crossing when the lights change.

The crossing has cameras so presumably the signalman could stop trains if necessary but some peeps really outa get their highway codes out and read them occasionally.

Maybe peeps who haven't done one outa be made to do theory/hp test particularly the confused looking older guy at the front of the cars on the yellow box.

Re: Idiots!

agree.

peeps should be encouraged to read through the HC, and may be have the odd refresher lesson with an ADI.

it won't harm them, and more than likely will help them to improve their standard of safety on the roads.

Re: Idiots!

Most people dont look beyond the end of their bonnet. So most of are just hoping when they get over the railway/tram tracks that there will be a space for them round the bend!

Re: Idiots!

The tram tracks run alongside the railway but are not protected by the gates. Traffic must go straight on at the lights & if you want to go across the crossing you have to turn right & right again. So some wally decides to turn left at the lights straight in front of a tram.  yikes How there wasn't an accident I'll never know.
