Look out for Trains
Another near miss when the driver of an orange late model Falcon failed to stop at the Leighlands Road level crossing at Western Junction (KPS196.6).
When will they learn? Another report of a driver failing to stop at a level crossing. This time it was at the Brooklyn Road level crossing in Burnie. The driver of a black sedan put their life at risk and drove through the crossing, neglecting the warning bells and lights. Not only do you put yourself in the way of harm, you also put our drivers at risk. LOSE A MINUTE, NOT YOUR LIFE!
The driver of a bronze Holden Commodore ignored the warning signals at the Sheffield Road intersection at Spreyton and drove in front of the train. The registration details of the vehicle were passed on to the Tasmanian Police. BE ALERT, STOP, LOOK and LIVE.
