Unmanned Railway Crossings

With phenomenal increase in number of fast moving vehicles, increasing commuters and heavy construction activity ( including unauthorized ) near railway tracks has led to a sad spurt in accidents at unmanned Railway Crossings. There should be clear view of railway track from approaching roads with all unauthorized buildings demolished.

As Railways cannot provide manned points at all crossings, blinkers/hooters as operating in U.S.A. and other countries should be provided. All lives of vehicle passengers are valuable and so is the property and time schedules of Indian Railways.
