  • Let’s Put the Sun in Jail
    the truck driver violated this regulation The driving speed chosen by the driver for approaching the level crossing was inappropriate How was the wrong driving speed influenced by missing level crossing gates No one tried to answer that question There were no answers to that question because the answer that is actually quite easy to find would take away the opportunity to discuss this topic emotionally But are emotions not the factor that catches readers attention I would not be surprised if the criminal investigation currently conducted by the Police and Boarder Guard Board would find another violation driving faster than allowed i e more than 70 km h But what could we do with this fact if we already know the guilty party missing level crossing gates The global statistics tell us that approximately 50 of train motor vehicle collisions happen at railway level crossings that have level crossing gates Thus we may expect that technical tools help us in reducing the number of accidents but we cannot rely on them only The decision when and how to cross railway is always made by road user The recent railway accidents involving people on bicycles have taken place at modernised crossings that are clearly marked and where people need to get through a zigzag barrier in order to reach them In the opinions published in press was underlined the message that probably the main reasons for this accidents to take place were headphones worn by bicyclists Their attention must have been distracted by them Again it is not mentioned that the bicyclists rode through the security area and crossed railway without getting off their bikes Such action violates Article 60 2 of the Traffic Act that provides that railways can be crossed by vehicle drivers only at designated locations This means that a bicycle driver may cross railway at a pedestrian crossing only as a pedestrian pushing a bike on his or her side The earphone and music in them were just one additional factor that may have played an important role in distracting attention at the time of railway crossing Although we often want to see things the way we like the most we need to admit that some laws and rules are applied to prevent us from being negligent about our lives Accidents are events that cannot be prevented by the persons who suffer There has been only one such tragic accident on the Estonian railway lines recently where people who got injured and killed riding a passenger train did not have any choice The rest of the statistics published by the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority talks about incidents where sad consequences were caused by distraction violation of regulation or other such reasons It is hard to think this way but this cheating of ourselves that we do will not lead us forward As a rule railway companies do not need lawyers in the investigations dealing with those tragic accidents They do not need to find law provisions
