This Wednesday, November 24, the Belgian railway company, Infrabel, raised a rant on its Twitter account. In question, a video of several motorists amassed on the railroad tracks in the middle of the night.
It’s at 11:13 p.m., near Florenville, that this motorist got stuck on rails. The level crossing was free to access but she still found a way to block herself.
Faced with this, several people came to his aid in front of a security camera. But despite all the attempts, nothing helps. The car gets stuck and no one manages to get it out of there …
The situation does not change, but the minutes continue to pass. 6 minutes later, nothing has changed and time is running out. Yes, even though we are in the middle of the Belgian countryside, there are many trains on this route.
Besides, it will not be missing. After 8 minutes everyone leaves the car where it is in order to avoid the train. The latter dismantles the poor vehicle and continues on his way.
An example not to be followed in Florenville ?
A motorist loses precious time and puts himself in danger instead of contacting the emergency services directly, who could have done what was necessary to stop the traffic and avoid the accident. pic.twitter.com/Bz6XmdfESk

Faced with this, Belgian society is rebelling! Indeed, she believes that all these people have taken reckless risks by staying on track in this way.
So it would have been better to prevent emergency services rather than act themselves. And for good reason, in 8 minutes there was time to intervene since anyway, no one managed to get the car out on time here.
