Level Crossing With Gates Warning Sign

Why is the "gated level crossing" a warning sign?

You are being warned you may need to stop and wait until a train passes ove rthe road ahead of you.

Gated railway crossing have warning lights before the gates are closed or barriers come down to block the road ahead.

DO NOT proceed and stop if the warning lights are flashing as you could get trapped on the railway line between the barriers if you fail to stop. People get killed every year trying to nip through before gates or barriers are completely closed. Don't let that happen to you it is very dangerous not only to you but other drivers and people on the train.

Hence it is a "warning sign" not a general information sign!

Care and extra observation required.
