At least it looks like they were considerate in showing clearly their registration plate so that someone can trace them and send them a summons!

Tidemills level crossing: Woman lies on tracks for photo



A woman has been caught on CCTV lying on a level crossing to pose for a photograph, prompting a warning from rail bosses.
Network Rail said it was the 17th incident recorded on the crossing, at Tidemills, East Sussex, in the last nine months.

Fifteen of those incidents involved near misses with trains, compared to three in 2019.

Level crossing manager Tracy Partridge said she was "concerned".

She warned: "We cannot stress enough the danger that people are placing themselves in when they don't use a crossing safely.

"A split-second decision can have life-changing consequences, not only for those involved, but also for their family and friends, train drivers and railway workers."

Seaford branch, just to the east of Newhaven??

Yes, it is a popular walking area with the remains of the Bishopstone tide mill close by.
