  • Level crossings for drivers

  • As drivers we need to:

    • Be prepared to stop at the crossing.
    • Understand the warnings (lights, barriers, alarms).
    • If the warnings activate, stop - unless it’s unsafe to do so.
    • Remain stationary until all the warnings stop.
    • Check that our exit is clear before driving across.
