"Being railroaded " might be a term 34 drivers in Ames thought appropriate as they were caught inattentive to the railroad crossing signals. I must admit I was surprised by the high number of violators. My wife worked with this detail sharing a humorous moment with me. She was explaining to one of the violators why she pulled her over. She was an older lady with her grand children in the car. when told she had crossed the track when the bells were ringing, the cross arms were descending, the lady apologized and said she didn't see or hear them, suddenly a tiny voice came from the back seat "You saw them grandma don't you remember, you said 'uh oh, gradma better hurry up' . out of the mouths of babes, afternoon treat is cancelled.
