Accidents on trains are rare, but they do happen every so often. Most train accidents happen when a train hits an animal grazing on the tracks or a car that is stuck on the tracks. When this happens, many people wonder why the train driver didn't stop the train.


People should always keep in mind that train drivers are not trying to hit anyone. So, many train drivers would blow their horns at anything in their way to get it to move.


Trains can stop moving. Trains, on the other hand, can't stop quickly like cars and buses can. Trains are big, heavy, and move very quickly. This means that they have to be stopped with a lot of braking force. Trains can stop after traveling up to 1.6 kilometers. When the train driver puts on the brakes, the train will keep going for a certain distance before stopping for good.


Because of how the land drains, most railroad tracks aren't perfectly straight. Other train tracks go through a thickly wooded area with bushy trees. So, train drivers can only see a few meters or only a small part of the road ahead of them. When cars break down on railroad tracks, the train driver can't see them until they're close, making it hard to stop in time.


When they finally see what's in front of them, it's always too late, because even if they use the brakes, the train will keep going for a while before it stops. The train is very heavy and can't be stopped quickly because it gains speed. This means that even if the driver tries to slow down, anything close to or stopped in front of the railroad will be knocked down.
