Scottsbluff rail crossing stupidity

June 10, 2010

Check out this picture from southbound 5th Avenue in Scottsbluff. Do you see the problem?


A. It’s completely stupid that someone would drive around a railroad crossing gate to beat a train.

B. It’s completely stupid that this apparently happened often enough to necessitate the sign.

C. It’s completely stupid that people drive up and over the curb anyway, despite the sign, though I guess if people are dumb enough to do A, they are not likely to be literate enough to understand B.

No wonder we seem to be having such an issue trying to deal with the noisy trains and rail crossings in downtown Scottsbluff. We’re having to design rail crossings for Darwin Award candidates.
