Hello GTA users,

 

4KknG.jpg

 

As you can see in that picture, there are no railroad sign or crossing gates and that is a road.

 

I would simply like to propose rockstar adding both a RR crossing sign plus the crossing gates at at that spot to prevent fatalities.

 

Thank you. :)

 

(PS: My car duped in the making of this picture.)

That's it. This is the final straw. How could they possibly release the game like this they should have waited until Nov 1

Thanks for warning us OP.. Wouldn't be cool if someone got run over by a train because there was no crossing sign!

Also its unfair to the deaf because they rely on those signs and gates since they cant hear the engine coming. Hasn't rockstar ever heard of the americans with disabilities act

Lol this is the utopia that some players of GTA:O live in at the moment. Just because they have no issues they are trying to make pointless suggestions :D

As someone who works for the railroad not all crossing have signals and crossings arms that come down. This is especially true in remote rural areas. Some crossings in the country side won't even have signs. Crossing signals are usually only found in towns, cities or heavily trafficked areas.

Thanks OP. It's amazing the danger all around and we just go about our auto theft and don't give it a thought.

 

I passed that very crossing once I think, and looking back, I dodged a bullet without realizing.

I'll have to remember that spot while avoiding gun fire and make sure to look both ways before crossing.

 

Thanks OP!

It's not a danger if you people would use common sense when approaching a rail crossing.

That's actually not uncommon at all. Especially in the desert. In my hometown there was a RR track that crossed 3 roads, two very low traffic and one medium traffic. Neither of them had any signal or lights, just a yellow RR warning sign. Besides the trains honk for like a minute before they even reach the crossing (standard procedure even if there are crossing gates and lights).

 

Considering that picture is of a crossing in the desert and a dirt road I'd say its actually pretty realistic

Where the hell do you live?! In the UK, Network Fail Rail's Level Crossing standards mandate that no crossing is without 'protection', even if that just includes signs. Sure, for low-traffic areas they might just put in treadle-operated half-barrier crossings. For many of the small footcrossings across farms, there's at least a pedestrian gate and public telephone in place so that farmers can contact the signaller.

 

Edit: I also work on the railway. I am not a trainspotter or enthusiast. Really want to make that clear.

I live next to a train track in a small rural area of NC. We have a post office, a Hardee's and a couple of convinience stores. Other than that, it's churches and mechanics.

Our sh*tty tracks have full on crossing arms and lights and signs and everything.

There is no excuse for this lazy, shoddy, slip-shod lack of equipment. I will be voting for Jock Cranley in hopes that he will get this sorted.

EXACTLY. How many times do you see people crossing railroad tracks when trains are gliding across? Thats the whole point, it's common sense. You cannot die if you're in a car anyways, it'll just push your car.

Most crossings will have at least a sign indicating a rail crossing, it can be rare not to see a rail sign but they are out there. The crossing arms are usually found only in towns, cities, or places of heavy vehicle traffic. The crossing arms aren't perfect, they do malfunction, ie not going down when a train comes, staying down after a train leaves or they will just keep flashing and dinging.

That's why you should still slow down and look before crossing a rail crossing, there could still be a train. Not to mention some crossings are sh*tty and can damage your car if you drive over them too fast.

It's hard to tell on the internet but I hope that's sarcasm. The internet really needs sarcasm text, there's: bold, underline, italics, but no sarcasm.
