Crossings

there are many roads in Switzerland which are crossed by the railway! Make sure to stop your car before the railroad barrier as it is life-threatening and prohibited!
A railroad crossing in Switzerland looks like this:
To avoid dangerous situations:
When traffic stops, always stop your car at the white stop line before the railroad crossing so that your vehicle is not blocked by unexpectedly lowering barriers! If the red flashing lights turn on, stop immediately at the white stop line (before the cross-ing). The red flashing lights mean "stop" for everyone, including pedestrians. The engine is to be shut off.
