A 35-year-old father was on his way to a family party with his 2 toddlers. As the car approached the level crossing, witnesses saw how it ignored the red light and the crossing’s closed barriers. The train driver launched the emergency braking but a collision could no longer be avoided.
In the first quarter of 2018, 125 traffic disruptions were recorded as a result of the malfunction of train detection system on the tracks. These caused 9,000 minutes of delays (1 hour 40 minutes each day), which is twice as much as during the same period last year.
