I disagree. :)
If you stop near either signal, where one might be expected to stop,
the left corner of your vehicle could be hit.
"expected to stop"?
Oh man, RG. :(
Where do I start? :/
Those signals must be relocated to the STOP LINES on the pavement.
What "stop lines" on the pavement?
(the google-stuff doesn't work for me, Linux system here)
Sorry RG, but I couldn't disagree more, with everything in your post. :/
The crossing bells are set where they are "supposed to be set", bet
you money on that one. If someone lives near it and could measure
the distances, that could be confirmed either way.
Another point is, where does the motorist take responsibility in where
to stop and wait on a train? If anything the "stop lines" are your
precious nanny state's (gov't) responsibility and I don't see any. ;)
...but IMO they aren't needed anyway, just a waste of money.
My question to you is, are you so friggin stupid you would park within
three feet of the rail when a train is coming? ;) ...the point being...
Just how stupid do you think everyone else is? And just what is it you
got against Darwin anyway? ;)
It will be very interesting to hear what you've got to say, no kidding.
When I was in high school and college I didn't seem to agree with much
of anybody about anything. :/ Ten years out of high school I was still
thinking I was nothing but a dangged "contrarian". LOL :)
There were times I was the only one in the class (including the teacher)
that was arguing "my side" of it. LOL :)
Then heard what Clark had to say when running for president for the
Libertarian Party. :) Hey! Turns out I wasn't just a "contrarian" I was
worse than that, I was a "libertarian-contrarian" and as everybody
knows, we are crazy and have a real bad attitude about -everything-. :/
Yeah, there might be children in the vehicle that gets hit because -you-
(RG) are too stupid to stop back from the tracks far enough to keep
from getting hit. What have I gotta do to protect you? Lock you and
your kids in a padded cell and slip "state/AMA approved food" under
the door three times a day? :( Huh? ;)
What happened to the title of "adult" in this world? Yeah, I know the
answer to that question, just wondering if you know or if you've ever
even thought about it before. ;)
