I was thinking the same thing, they probably have a higher number of people trampled by cattle.

I think it is worth mentioning that we drivers save a lot of people from their own stupidity, otherwise these numbers would be much higher. The best example is people who walk out from behind a train, not thinking another train could be going the other way. This is why we are trained to use our clanger when we are about to pass a train going the other way. I have kept many people from being hit by my train with this technique.

I really like the drivers that when leaving the station that block the crossing until the in coming train has arrived. It should be standard practice.

As an aside we had a really hard stop to avoid a jaywalker today at Chinook. I think it must have been close because the train stayed stopped for a few minutes. This is about a year after I was on a train that hit someone in the same spot.
