Grade Crossing Accidents
As the perils of life multiply,
some of the older hazards cease to
seem so ominous. Formerly rail
road grade crossings were regarded
as one of the great dangers of com
munity life. In thickly settled dis
tricts the railroads spent great
sums of money to separate grades.
But to-day the swiftly moving au
tomobile in town centers is probably
an even greater peril than the rail
road grade crossing.
The growing expenbivenens of
construction work has checked the
movement to abolish railroad cross
ings at grade While many of these
crossings are exceedingly dangerous
and should be done away, yet the
public must learn to use more cau
tion as it is not possible to remove
The use of automobiles has in
creased the number of grade cross
ing accidents. Motorists think their
speedy machine will get them across,
out they fail to realize bow very
little time it takes a locomotive to
cover distances like an eighth to a
quarter of a mile.
Automobile drivers dislike to
stop and listen after the old fashion
ed way. Speed is their motto, they
dislike any interruption. It seems
a bother to bring the machine to
standstill and change gears up to
their usual speed again. They cross
sately 10.000 times, but the next
time some of them are converted
A few seconds of the driver's
time are not so valuable as he
thinks, and may save his life, and
that of his load. Also a responsibili
ty rests on the railroad engineraan
to give abundant warning of his ap
proach. WhistleB should be blown
or bells rung vigorously at every
crossing where the track is conceal
ed from the highway. A great many
accidents occur because the driver
heard no warning, and the trac
could not be seen.
