hit by a train nats: ambiance and even with a green light drivers need to keep clear of the tracks all to often i watch drivers get stuck on the tracks or have to back up when if they stayed behind the stop here on red sign they would put themselves in a sticky situation. if driver would pull there head out there phones and pay attention to the road many of the mistakes could be avoided nats: ambiance so basically keep back until its your turn you can save money by not getting a ticket or have a life by not getting hit by a train .. in mountain view stanley roberts kron 4 news ( james ) coming up...
