At about the 1:21 mark is when it gets interesting here. Idiot kids playing chicken and then a guy just walks in front of the train at the next crossing like its nothing. Idiots.

As my sainted Grand Mother would say, Not all of the crazy people are in the Crazy House. Also, in some states, if a cop caught you doing that a citation would be issued. That would make an impression on you.
