Let’s learn a little more about those crazy flashing lights at the odd traffic signal at the Main Street / Woodward railroad crossing. First: when the railroad crossing “crossbuck” lights are flashing, the bells are ringing, and the gates are descending, get outta there! A train is near! Legally, while red lights are flashing at a railroad crossing, the roadway is closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. This is an unconditional stop and wait signal, not a proceed with caution signal. Common sense and the CA vehicle codes dictate that you stop your vehicle short of crossing gates, and wait behind the double white line while railroad crossing signals are active. When a train is past, wait until the gates are fully vertical and crossbuck flashing lights are turned off, before proceeding through the crossing.
