Beware: I have heard of people getting tickets for crossing the tracks during the short period after the lights start flashing but before the arms start to come down. Unfortunately, railroad crossings have no equivalent to a yellow light.

About a year ago, I also saw a SamTrans bus quickly cross the tracks after the bells started ringing. Very reckless. Hope someone got the number of today's bus and reported it to SamTrans. Otherwise, I'm sure they could check the schedule to determine who was driving.

Some SamTrans driver is probably trying to explain the scratched paint on his/her bus to the boss right about now. This incredibly reckless act not only endangered the bus passengers, it could have derailed the train.
