You still wouldn't be exempt from the need for multi-million dollar insurance coverage.

I can tell you from personal experience....every engineer that has to deal with crossings at grade will have an accident where they strike an automobile. That you have to live with for the rest of your life.

I second Keith's motion, having hit three vehicles during my career, fortunately with no injuries or fatalities. Note -- all three were at protected crossings.

Gee,I had one hit me broadside and I hit one.
The first hit broke off a globe valve and drained the engine's boiler. It was quite a display.
The second one pulled out of a parking space just as I was passing.(Street running)

This was on a 2' gauge railroad at the former Nebraska State Fairgrounds.

Jock, the picture I took was crossing a private drive at a private track in New Hampshire.
