Please be aware of the minimum distance of clearance needed when parking a vehicle near unguarded, active train tracks. The preferred distance for which to park is [as far away as possible].

Here is video taken a few days ago demonstrating a critical failure in abiding to the common-sense minimum distance required:

Unfortunately, Jason Torchinsky wasn’t around for me to get a name for this tragic little ute. You don’t wake Torchinsky once he finally settles. Nonetheless, it’s cute and I’m sad.

Also, do not try to pull the vehicle away from the train with only your bare strength while it is actively being torn apart in a twist of exploding glass and shearing metal. You just have to wait this one out.
