What do I do if I'm trapped between gates?
If drivers adhere to traffic rules they can avoid dangerous situations - even at gates. However, if a driver is trapped between closing gates, there's only one thing to do: Accelerate and break through the gate. Barrier booms are designed so even compact cars can break through them. Sometimes the car can even push the gate up. Little scratches or marks on a car are always the better alternative to a total crash with a train.
