    Is something missing from this report? (What kept on going?)

    The red alarm RR lights at the crossing kept flashing noisily even though the train was long gone, causing a bit of a traffic pileup for about 20+ minutes, because drivers were then hesitant to cross the tracks. My tweet was too succinct to provide all the information I intended to convey.

    I was on foot and saw the AAPD car. I was wondering if the officer was going to ticket any car that didn’t come to a stop. However, I didn’t stay to watch and find out. As the above poster notes some cars paused for a long time.

    No tickets were issued. Although, we did not stay long enough to see the flashing RR lights eventually extinguished, we did see the officer drive away after he had made his phone call to the Ann Arbor Railroad Office and informed those folks about the situation.
