Remarks & Notes 
This trucker picked the wrong crossing gate to go around. Not only did he almost get hit by a train, his stupid maneuver was observed by several police officers participating in an Operation Lifesaver enforcement day. Fortunately this guy was nailed by the cops and faces an automatic 60 day suspension of his commercial driver's license and depending on his employer, chances are he may have lost his job as well. The crossing was broken by another truck who had gone around the gates a few minutes before this guy.
