Getting stopped by a train is a regular feature of life in the region. Getting stopped by a stopped train shouldn't be, however.
MUNSTER | Before the expected traffic snarls associated with the Calumet Avenue/45th Street underpass project commence next year, drivers will be inconvenienced by a shutdown of the Canadian National Railway crossing at White Oak Avenue.

I resent the fact that I have to pay for other people's stupidity. It's bad enough political ignorance wastes my tax dollars. Railroad crossings are not dangerous. People are dangerous! Same principle with guns: Guns don't kill, people do. The train didn't jump the track and hit those people.
