Stupid and unnecessary death when lowboy trailer gets stuck on railroad tracks, and both truckers casually jack their jaws until the moment the speeding train arrives at the crossing. For the record, the little blue sign has a crossing ID and phone number that connects directly to the railroad, and if called can get signals in the area turned to red and dispatch in contact with any trains in the area within a matter of seconds. GTFO of your vehicle and move in the direction of the approaching train to avoid being hit by flying debris.

Hell, there are still not-insubstantial stretches of terrestrial geography about which we know very little beyond what satellite imagery can tell us. The oceans are all but unexplored in their entirety by comparison.
