Crossing Flashers

SNCF TGV POS High Speed Train... Isn't it too dangerous?

I heard about them having trains like this one in China, and people were hit a lot by them, but a lot of them jumped in front or drove there car in front. But they made a new train in Europe and it first drove on the tracks this week, and when I seen it on the tracks, it was going REALLY fast. It was going 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph). Doesn't anything think its dangerous that they have the rails and train close to towns and citys? If there was anyone walking across the tracks they would never have time to jump out of the way, and if there was a car, it wouldn't have time to accelerate and get out of the way. And if the train his like a semi with a gas trailer it could explode and the train would derail. What does everyone else think about the train?

Railroads have been running high-speed for a long time, they've got it figured out.

You're right, at those speeds, "stop look and listen" won't give adequate warning. So, no one is ever allowed to cross those tracks. There are bridges or underpasses for the cars and pedestrians. They are well fenced so they don't have trespassers trying to cross the tracks.

But even on regular tracks, busy crossings have "crossing flashers" which give 20 seconds of advance warning that a train is coming. Anywhere else, the person crossing the tracks must stop, look and listen.
