S4S, this goes far beyond stupidity in the realm of full-blown f**tardation.

Interesting story, Squrlz.

When I was in elementary school, the rule was that a bus had to stop at all railroad crossings and open the door, and a runner (a student volunteer) would get out, run accross the tracks checking to see if a train was coming, and wave the bus accross. Runner would then hop back on and off we go.

Of course parents today would scream at such a `dangerous` process.

I always enjoyed being the runner.

True story: When I was in elementary school, I used to have a bus driver who would stop the school bus when it was sitting directly atop the railroad tracks, open the door, and dutifully listen for the sound of any approaching trains. As a little kid, it always made me wonder: What on Earth was she trying to do? Let Friendly Mr. Train climb on board the bus with us?

Only years later did I realize that she`d been instructed about a Connecticut state law stipulating that BEFORE entering the area of a grade crossing, school bus drivers are supposed to stop and listen for a train. Somehow something got lost in the translation and this woman would stop the bus right on top of the tracks before listening. I kid you not. That situation had to have gone on for at least a year. Being little kids, we had no idea how dangerous it was.

"On a serious note, the rule is NEVER stop on a RR track, and NEVER try to cross a RR track until there is room for you to get clear of it on the other side."

I think he grounded it

damn trains, come out of nowhere and you have no warning they are approaching or any idea exactly where they will cross the road
