Stop, Look, and Listen to this Report

A New York Times investigation has found that between 1999 and 2003, there were 400 cases where railroad crossing signals and gates failed to activate or malfunctioned. At least 45 people were killed, 130 injured in those cases. It could point to widespread problems with the warning systems. A former NTSB honcho says the Times findings may simply be "the tip of the iceberg." Might want to stop, look, and listen at the next crossing you come to -- just in case. (NYT)
