    1) Stop Before the Line at the tracks if you can't pass through without stopping, don't ever stop on the tracks.

    2) If lights are flashing don't attempt to run through railroad tracks.

    3) Wait until gates are completely up before crossing railroad tracks.

    4) Slow down at tracks, and check both directions visually for trains.

    when you come to a railroad crossing

    1. if the light is not flashing still look both ways

    2. if the light is flashing wait for train to pass before crossing, even if you think you can beat it, don't risk your car stalling.

    3. wait for train to fully clear area and lights to stop flashing before proceeding.

    4. proceed over at natural speed. speeding could cause bumps to affect control.

    Slow down so you can check crossing

    If it is equipped with lights and they are flashing-stop

    If no lights or gates, look both ways

    Never try to outrun a train!
