Sometimes, you have to wonder about the state of what people were thinking of when they take seflies.
This one pretty much takes the biscuit. Here’s the video and tweet from ProRail (the rail infrastructure owners in the Nederlands).
In de strijd tegen overlast, vandalisme en vertragingen gaat ProRail nóg meer delen van het spoor onder 24-uurs slim cameratoezicht plaatsen. Deze mobiele camera’s kunnen afwijkend gedrag automatisch herkennen, zoals op de onderstaande (bizarre) beelden > https://t.co/hBnVmGytHc pic.twitter.com/Za8qsz21ml

These idiots (for there is quite frankly no other word for them) drive and park a car on a level crossing.
With the car parked in the middle of the crossing, a passenger gets out of the car, running onto a track, taking a number of pictures of the car from different angles.
The car was parked on a railway crossing for around a minute – which can only be described as a candidate for a Darwin Award.
Now, they might had got away with it too, if it wasn’t for ProRail installing Solar Powered CCTV cameras on their network.
There are plenty of places in the world for a selfie or a car photo. Parked on a rail line on a rail crossing isn’t one of them.
