This Vehicle Stops at All Railroad Crossings

I saw a propane delivery truck recently. On the back of the pill-shaped propane container, below the diamond-shaped hazard signs, was the advisement “This Vehicle Stops at All Railroad Crossings”. As we stopped at the railroad tracks, I thought about the impetus for the practice. Obviously the damage from when a train hits a propane tank is unacceptable so extra care must be taken to avoid it.

Wait a second.

When a train hits a propane tank? If the probability of a train collision is high enough for the propane folks to have a procedure to address it, what about the rest of us? A train hitting my car would cause an unacceptable amount of damage to me.

Why don’t we all stop and listen at railroad crossings?
