I sat in my '96 T-Bird and took a video of myself.
Right before the train at 3:13 PM showed up, a guy in an HRT truck leaned out the window with a grin and said, "need to be at least 30 feet." He looked like he might've been joking, but I wasn't sure. I was surprised to hear this, because on all freight lines I've heard 15 feet is the safest distance. I was wondering if anyone (including HRT personnel) could tell me if the "30 feet from the tracks" thing is true. Maybe the regulations are different for light rail as opposed to regular freight. Or maybe the guy was nervous since The Tide just had a derailment last week. If anyone, and I mean anyone knows what the safe distance is on The Tide, let me know. And to HRT, I'm sorry if I scared you. I didn't mean to make you nervous. Thank you for taking the time to look at this video and answer my question.
