When Railroad Arms Go Bad!
Have you ever had one of those days when you just have to say, WTF did that really just happen? Well today was one of those days for me.
As I was driving and crossing the Railroad tracks at Moore Lane and Laurel Road suddenly the railroad arms, I believe the official name is trip arms, anyway the freaking arm came down on top of my car as I was driving over the railroad track.
No there was not a train coming, and no there was not an alert or lights or signal that the arms where coming down.
So after about soiling myself, I watched in my rear-view mirror as the crazy arms continued to go up and down causing traffic to stop and try to figure out what was going on.
After I gathered my thoughts and realized that indeed I have been accosted by the railroad arms I checked for damage and well as they say a picture speaks a thousand words.
So what are the chance that I could get an estimate and turn this over to the City of Billings for cost of repairs on the roof of my car?
