Exeter: Level Crossing Dangers In Pinhoe

CCTV captures drivers dicing with death at level crossings in Britain

01:41

Motorists and pedestrians in Devon continue risking their lives and those of other road and rail users by routinely ignoring basic safety at level crossings.

British Transport Police (BTP) officers have been carrying out additional high-visibility patrols at the Exeter Pinhoe crossing during a week of action which started on Monday 2nd February. 

Many of these drivers had got into the habit of deliberately misusing crossings, with figures showing people of all ages willing to risk their lives to shave a few minutes off their journey. 

BTP officers will be joined by Network Rail level crossing managers and volunteers to hand out safety information leaflets to motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
