Drivers are Failing to Stop at Aviemore Level Crossing

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday June 4 2018

Police in Badenoch & Strathspey are warning of the dangers of failing to stop at a level crossing following a number of incidents reported in Aviemore.

Over the past few weeks there has been a number of incidents reported where people are ignoring signals at the Strathspey Steam Railway crossing in the Dalfaber Drive area of the village.

Eight incidents have been reported to officers since the start of March and enquiries are being progressed.

Commenting Sergeant Craig Johnstone, from the Aviemore Community Policing Team said: "It should go without saying that the possible consequences of not complying with the requirements of the lights at the level crossing do not bear thinking about.

"We have seen a marked increase recently in the number of drivers failing to stop at the lights and we are taking robust action against the drivers who are responsible for these extremely dangerous actions.

"Not only are these drivers putting their own lives at risk but also the safety of the passengers on board the train."
