Kitchener, Ontario: Collision leaves motorist with damage to his pocket

31 Jul

A 21-year-old male has found himself with CAD4,000 damage to his vehicle and charged by the police for failing to stops required when the signals protecting the level crossing were flashing red. The incident occurred at about 07.30 on July 28th on the active open level crossing on Riverbank Drive, near the highway intersection with King Street. It has been determined that the lights and bells associated with this level crossing were working correctly when the train collided with the car, hence the charge bought against the motorist.

    It beggars belief that in this day and age we still think that because the lights and bells are working – the remedy is to bring a charge against the motorist. Well, it might be … but in the experience of the better informed about such matters there may be a good reason for the driver’s action. Of course, it’s easier not to think about it … and leave it to the police, who are least well qualified to deal with it.
