Whilst critiquing Russian driving...


We need these in the US!!

Yeah... no. I can see it now, malfunctioning gates and they are stuck up blocking traffic.

People running into them and wrecking cars. Cant wait!

>> No.130139  


Well that's their own dumb fault. Better to wreck your bumper than be hit by a 110mph passenger train. One has a much higher survivability than the other...

The other ones that I think are hilarious are when a car tries to follow a bus where a car isn't allowed and they get caught by the rising bollards in the UK.

It's a yo-yo thing, or at least it is for the quiet zone in the town south of me with several crossings right in the middle of all the shops. Everyone complains about the horns, so they declare it a quiet zone, and then too many people get hit, so they repeal the horn rules, and then everyone complains about the noise, so...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt1j5rQngMI -- If you gotta evacuate, might as well do so in style. Especially if there's a cuppa at the end of the walk.


The tl;dr? A wire snapped, thus no traction current.

Was wondering about that when I saw reports on the twitterverse. The pics showed open windows so it looked like they were there for a while as it's fairly cool now.

But then this also adds to my running joke that everything wrong (or exciting?) with Japan happens in or near Osaka.

Clearly JR West needs to shore up JR East (a few videos of trains near Tokyo with snapped wires in the snow having people stand on the roof in the dead of night and fixing it then and there, also another of them poking the pantographs with sticks to get them lifted)!

I did this once while I was displaying at a model train show. An adjacent autist began screaming in terror.


Considering the number of anime/japan/etc posts here, this is indeed probably one of the best places to ask.
