This is one game of follow the leader that only ends in tragedy.
We all know what it's like to be in a hurry to get somewhere. There's nothing worse than being caught in busy traffic when you have somewhere you need to be. And when you realize that you have to stop at a highway-railway crossing to let a train go by, you might feel extremely frustrated by the delay. The busy traffic around you may leave you feeling pressured to "beat" the train across. But if you decide to ignore the warning signals at a highway-railway crossing, they only place you'll be rushing to is your death.
For a graphic reminder, watch as a driver makes the tragic decision to follow other vehicles and cross the railway tracks against the warning signals. His entire family is riding in the van as a train crushes it.
