I am originally from a small city. We do not have trains in the city area. I moved to a place with Ctrains (basically subways but above ground). And sometimes you have to cross the tracks.
Now, sometimes you will get a green light and then the train lights will start flashing and the arms will go now. My reaction is to sit my ass right there even through it's a green light, mostly because OMG HUGE TRAIN I HAVE AN ELANTRA OMG. But other people just go through until the arms get so low they would hit a car.
Am I being too cautious? Are they not cautious enough?
