Do you feel unmanned Railway crossings across the countries should be removed?

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks.

Alternatives could be building Subway or Bridge ?

It's definitely dangerous, but that's the case all over North America. Over here, it's automated, so 5 km's before the train crosses, warning signs and a gate is activated to prevent crossing.

Better question is would an unmanned crossing even be respected by the population in India?

Thanks.

Most of the Drivers (Two,Three & Four Wheeler vehicles) have Smartphones & Cellphones. Some may or may not use Google maps.

Is it technically feasible to implement these solution?

About a distance of 1 Km - 3 Km before the Level crossing, the Drivers get alarming ringtones bells on their Smartphones / Cellphones indicating them that they are approaching a Level crossing.

It is possible, but they'd have to implement that technology in the railways too. In India, are trains governed by the government? (I'm unsure) If so, this is a great idea. Also, how many accidents occur each year at train-crossings?

The Unmanned Railway crossings have to be removed or Bridges / Underground Subways to be built as an alternative for level crossings.

There are serious accidents resulting in deaths & major casualties - permanent disabilities.

Yes, In India, Trains are governed by the Government.

So the above Solution is possible by designing & building a Smartphone app?

prashantakerkar (https://biology-forums.com/index.php?action=profile;u=849424) -- take this idea and propose it to the government - it's not bad
