The BTP's safety message is to pay attention to warning signs at level crossings.
You may also want to watch:
- As you approach, be ready to stop behind the white line if the lights begin to flash
- Only cross when the barriers are fully raised and the lights go off, or when you are granted permission by an operator
- If the red lights keep flashing after a train has passed, wait – another train is coming
- If the amber light comes on while you are on the crossing, keep going
- Never reverse onto or over the crossing
- Keep children with you at all times and keep dogs on a lead
