Report recommends lower speed limit at crossings

I found this today… and because the problem is still present, I think the solution should be twofold.

A minor / less frequent crossing should have roundabouts. The busy one should have a set of traffic lights for all participants (including pedestrians) and of course – the red light traffic cameras. During the pick hour’s one traffic police officer can give a hand. That will show the world how efficient and secure rail crossing can be and maybe make some drivers more relax than now because crossing the rail rosing demands a bit of brain and that is not included in the requirements for a driving licence. The world will shortly follow our unique example after two centuries of ignorance in rail crossings.

If that above does not solve the problem than we can make all rail crossings –a car free zone.

We have roundabout crossing in Victoria. It's mixing the worst kind of traffic intersection, with the worst kind of rail crossing. Why not just put speed humps before and after each level crossing. As much as I hate them, it will really piss the hoons off.

No, no, I understood it was a joke (of sorts), I was simply emphasising the stupidity (humour?)...
