Be safe around trains! - level 2
The British Transport Police has a new campaign. It released short video clips as part of the campaign which is called Operation Look.
Someone shot the first video in Scotland. It shows how a man casually crossed a crossing with two half barriers clearly in place. The man reached safety in seconds before a train went through.
Another video shows a cyclist. He was approaching a crossing, and he didn’t see that the barriers were coming down. The barriers knocked him off of his bike.
Difficult words: casually (in a relaxed way), crossing (area where a road and a railway cross), barrier (a gate at a crossing which is lowered and raised).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
