If I was the cop investigating this, I'd send a request to the drivers
license division to have this driver re-tested. Maybe this person was texting.
Whatever the reason they turned left past a down arm, they shouldn't be
or put a dead end where they can't make a turn heading to trax
Bet he was on the phone.
@ airnaut: Or road spikes that pop up when the arms are down! (Like they used
to have if you tried to go in the out at a drive-in theater.) Better a flat tire (or tires) than a dead person!
"We can't help people not paying attention, but we're looking at
other options," he said.==========How about an
automatic machine that shoots out the tires of idiots who drive around down
crossing arms and ignore red flashing lights?Utah drivers and trains
are on par with Wiley Coyote and trains. And you people worry so
much about breathalizers...sheez...
I hope he gets a big $ citation for doing this. When the crossing arms are down
it means don't go!
