Truck drivers are people, people have flaws, some people have huge flaws in jugement, and they're in all professions.

Been there, done that. Hot tires stopped on ice is bad news.

The gates didn't come down until AFTER the train had passed. Clearly malfunctioning. That is one lucky driver!

I think the lucky driver is the one in front of us who made it safely across.

It looks like he started sliding, realized he wasn't going to be able to stop in time, and then sped up to get at least the cab forward in front of the train.

Any news on what the cargo was? (Edit: nevermind, obviously a FedEx truck carries lots of FedEx packages...)

Is this a thing?

Up here everyone moves to the right side of the road when crossing train tracks. Occasionally, it makes sense in that the middle of the road has frost heaves and is bumpy. But lately I've been noticing people doing it all the time at every crossing regardless of the road surface condition. It's like it's a superstition or something.

Is this just a redneck upstate new yorker thing or am I missing something?

They aren't already on the right side of the road?

Maybe the right lane of a four lane crossing?
