Level Crossing, Isle of Grain

According to the BBC, British Transport Police have prosecuted one hundred people in the past three months, for ignoring the lights at the level crossing on the Isle of Grain (photographed below).  British Transport Police say CCTV cameras and higher fines have helped cut the number of incidents at the crossing, by 20 a week to just one or two since 1 May.

Last month, Network Rail said they were considering the possibility of installing automatic barriers at the crossing, to replace the manual system currently in use.
