I work for Norfolk Southern (Railroad). Did you know that if the train hit the car, the car would have been at fault and would have to pay for the damages; lost income, new paint job, etc.

Many industries charge railroads if they are late with the delivery - that charge would also be forward to the at fault car driver. Imagine a train loaded with parts for a car plant and is involved with a car accident at a grade crossing. Assuming that the train does not derail but the passengers in the vehicle die and the train is delayed 3-4 hours from delivering the parts to the plant and the plant as to stop the assemble line for 2 hours. The charge from the car manufacture would be extremely high. Now imagine the families response when they are notified that not only did they lose a loved one but now they are responsible for 200,000 charge for late delivery and a $30,000 paint job.

Folks, do not risk your life it’s not worth it to save the 5-10 minutes.

Yeah right. Good luck collecting $230,000 from the average person...
