Authorities from Queensland Rail want to get the word out about being safe when the boom guards o down. In a video the organization just released, a bicyclist risked their life just to beat the train at the crossing and save a couple of minutes. Unnecessary risks like the ones this cyclist took can result in injury and death. That's why Queensland Rail wants to make people aware that while you may get lucky and beat the train once, that is not the case for everyone.

Next, how did this rider miss the parked car right in front of them? In the CCTV footage, the rider can be seen heading towards a parked car with absolutely nothing else in their way. By all accounts, the rider could have easily gone around in literally any direction and not crashed at all. And yet, like a magnet, the rider was drawn towards the bumper of the parked car. Thankfully, the crash didn't seem that serious, but hopefully, there's nothing else in their way like a lone tree in a vast field.
