He should have lost his licence for such a stupid act of impatience. Never ceases to amaze me how many people chance it at level crossings.....

A similar incident happened recently when a Stagecoach double decker (somewhere in the East Sussex region) raced across the level crossing just as it was closing, with the railings just brushing over the roof of the vehicle. Didn't get stuck behind the gates like the First vehicle though.

I would love to know the answer to that as well. Also, how could New Horizon employ him?? Dont they check records? If i saw this one anyones history they wouldnt ever get another job driving ANYTHING.

As a Crossing Keeper myself, i understand people getting frustrated with having to wait, but as i keep saying to other people, surely it is worth a slight wait, than being early in the next life?? Surely im not alone in this thought??
