Drivers and pedestrians remember: a speeding train is like a slap shot that can't be stopped.
Attention hockey fans!
The start of the NHL regular season is just a week away. Since we know that hockey's already on your mind, here's a little piece of trivia for you: a well executed slap shot travels at around 140 km/h and so does a speeding train heading into a highway-railway crossing. The difference: a slap shot can be stopped by a goalie. The same can't be said for a car or pedestrian standing in the way of a train.
Watch this video featuring Mathieu Dandenault, formerly of the Montreal Canadiens, for a reminder that if you go head-to-head with a train, whether in a vehicle or on foot, you'll never be a winner.
