What do you do when you see the gates coming down at a railroad crossing?
Why if you are smart you stop, don’t you?
Well here’s today’s view which is slightly different.

Take a Railway level crossing in Bangalore India.
People Cars,Taxis,Dogs,Motorbikes and buses are crossing.
The alarm sounds.
The barriers come down.
Then the fun begins.

The junction has now closed by Indian railways on safety grounds.
I wonder how many people got killed before they closed it?

I knew that the Indians probably held the World Record for the number of people they could get on a train, but never realized they also held the record for number of people, dogs, cars, taxis, motorbikes, etc one could get on a level crossing after the gates had descended.
