Oh we dont have that many crossings or deaths on our railways but saying that 1 death is bad enough. over here if someone is seriousley injured or killed on the rail or any industry related accident then health and saftey have to step in find out why and put measures in to pratice to stop it happening again.
Over here a hi vis jacket has to be worn on any construction site, while operation any moving machinery etc even a stacker driver has to wear hi vis.
