Rule #1: Be nice.
Heard today one of the Railworks MOW equipment struck a van in Westphalia.Lights are not in operation and they claim the equipment didn't stop at the crossing.So,when you have a lighted and guarded crossing,however non operational yet,I would assume you would treat it the same as as a malfunctioning crossing?Have to flag and stop at the crossings? I take it Railworks would be at fault? No stop sign at the crossings.
Kind of make you wonder if the person they hit was paying any attention at all. Yeah that a tough call on who's at fault.
