I crossed the tracks this morning at about 9:10. There were maintenance workers working on the traffic arms, the lights were flashing but no trains were coming either way. No one was directing traffic, so it was unclear what was going on. Are the lights flashing because a train is coming or because the semi-oblivious workers are working on the movable arms. They did not do a good job of directing traffic there. Could that confusion have caused the accident??

Same thing Thurs about 11:30am. CalTrain(?) workers basically wandering across the street and tracks.

Anybody whose driving skills are not up to dealing with some road / track work without crashing needs to return their license to the crackerjack box from whence it came.
