Car dangerously swerves across railway tracks

Firstly, this is the General Lounge for most things to do with our roads. Indeed, most of us at some time use the road system in some way. With this in mind, users may post their experiences or observations here.

Car dangerously swerves across railway tracks

Car dangerously swerves across railway tracks to dodge the barriers.

Here is video footage of a car driving over a level crossing with barriers.
The barriers come down on his side of the road but the other side apparently comes down a little later.
The driver sees this and swerves around the first barrier and does the same on the other side of the railway lines.
This is obviously a very dangerous act and the consequences could have been disastrous.
Looking at the footage it seems that the driver knew the barriers were slightly delayed on either side.
