More prosecuted for level crossing misuse
MORE THAN 2,400 people have been caught and charged with breaking the law at level crossings by three Network Rail/BTP enforcement vans in London, the south east of England and Scotland.
The figures have been released as Network Rail announced it will be adding 10 further vans to its surveillance fleet this year to deter more motorists and pedestrians from taking a risk by darting across after the lights and klaxons have begun, or even swerving around barriers.
All the devolved Network Rail routes will have at least one van. London North East and Anglia, where there are more than 2,800 level crossings, will have three and two respectively.
