The Netherlands’ ProRail agency is warning of the dangers of what it calls “unguarded” level crossings, with the release of video showing a shockingly close encounter between a cyclist and a train.
The agency, which is responsible for Dutch rail infrastructure, said that it was not in favor of keeping unguarded crossings like the one shown in the video. However, it said, local residents and municipalities were often in favor of keeping them.
Three people have been killed using the crossings so far this year, the agency said, most recently a 47-year-old man on November 17. The incident in the video shows what the agency called “a young cyclist” in Geleen.
