Motorists don't know what to do at railway crossings. Confusion is rampant among drivers. When approaching railway crossings, a good many drivers, too many by far, throw the driver's man- ual out the window. They forget everything they ever learned about a red light.

GRAHAM Telephone: 234-3793 Office location: FORT MACLEOD Field Area: M.D. of WILLOW CREEK and PINCHER CREEK railway crossing is the Rail- way Advance Warning Sign will) Tab added lo show the crossing angle. The driver's manual says: "Proceed wilh caution and cross only when it is ab- solutely safe to do so." Tlie driver of a vehicle ap- proaching a- flashing red traf- :ic light must come to a stop. must not proceed until he can move in safety. Alberta Motor Association driver instructors tell their students to turn the radio down and roll the window alf way "If the light isn't working, they'll hear the train siren." But when the light is work- ing, for many drivers it's a first experience. It's some-, thing new. So are the bells. They can panic. Ahout a year ago, the Mo- tor Vehicle Branch at Ed- monton issued a directive to driver examiners concerning railway crossings. It was no longer necessary to take peo- ple seeking a regular driver's licence to a railway crossing during the test. These same drivers will stop at thousands of red lights in the city. But there's a good chance they will never see a red light at a railway crossing. They don't go on that often, AMA instructors drive stu- dents to these crossings. They visit the Fort Macleod crossing or the crossing near the Lctlibridge public stock- yards. Would you say a lot of peo- ple don't-know how to han- dle these crossings? "They don't, this is very said one AMA instruc- tor. TRIPS SIGNALS The signals are acliviated by the train. It reaches a designated point on the track. This is based on the speed of the fastest train that would be running on that particular track. It is set up to give ade- quate time for a vehicle on the road to stop. AT NIGHT At night these signals can bo confused with truck or cdr lights. "You can hit it before you know what is said an AMA instructor. Crossings are so dangerous that all Greyhound buses must stop at every crossing. The driver opens the door to the bus and listens intently. FOR CLASS 1 Sid Healy, examiner in charge of the motor vehicles branch at Lethbridge, says railroad crossings are in- cluded in Die driving test for those seeking higher class li- cences. The average driver is not required to go anywhere near one. "We can't have a test that takes us one and one-hall says Mr. Healy. The rules, he says, are clearly stated in the Alberta Operators' Manual. These are free for the asking. "We question them in re- gard to said one exam- iner. "They must know it." As a matter of actual fact, the manual has quite a bit of information on railroad crossings. Out it comes in a section of the book des- ignated for school bus driv- ers. "Do not overtake and pass when approaching or driving over a railway crossing." There arc seven steps to be followed at railway crossings. "Ask for silence from the children you are re- quired to stop at rail- way crossings." School bus drivers are told, "If an automatic warning signal is operating and no train is approaching the driv- er should ascertain, if at all possible, the cause of the warning and should NOT cross the tracks until it is absolutely certain tbe move- ment can be done in safety." It would appear that this passage should be required reading (or all drivers and not only those who operate school buses. As one examiner says, "When you come to a red light, you must stop. This means" a dead "'stop. The sig- nal could be going for 25 min- utes because the engine hasn't cleared that area. You must make a complete stop, see if it is safe to proceed, and then proceed." At the Coalhursl crossing, the signal is usually on morn- ing and night. Drivers slow down and then cross. It could be dangerous. The Canadian Transport Commission has a set formu- la by which signals are in- stalled and paid for by the railways and local govern- ments concerned. Maybe it's time to take a clear look at these signals. IRON SPRINGS (HNS) A Tamasha marked the end of a study in India here. The Iron Springs United Church was filled to overflow- ing for the event. Spearheaded by Mrs. Craig Miller, it marked tne comple- tion of a study on India by the CGIT, UCW and the Sunday School. The basement ot the church was converted into an Indian village.
