Parents Urged To Talk To Kids About Level Crossings After Shocking Footage Released By Network Rail

Post by Guest on Thu Aug 31, 2017 11:53 am

Parents are being urged to talk to their children about level crossings after Network Rail have noticed a number of incidents of deliberate misuse. The train company said there have been incidents at the Cotton Mill level crossing between St Albans Abbey and Watford Junction. During nine days of monitoring in 2017, four near misses with trains were recorded and there were over 300 occurences of “deliberate misuse”.

Network Rail released shocking footage of children “risking their lives” on the level crossing. It is hoped that parents who see the footage will speak to their children about level crossing safety before they return to school.

We used to do that on the Redding line, just north of Philadelphia. As the train approached we would wait on the tracks, and first one to jump loses. Or you run across as near to the approaching train as possible.

Watching the clip, donno what the challenge is for those kids...they're just hanging out.

Hahaha that wasn't aimed at you Quill, but it is a pretty stupid thing to do. Your poor mother...if she'd known what you were up to.... No
