    In western countries, all public transport (Taxis, Buses etc) have to come to a full stop, at every railway crossing. Only then they could proceed, if the coast is clear. They should make that the law in Sri Lanka too as that would avoid these regular tragedies.

    True but you can't build gates across stupidity. Three wheelers, private buses and lorries always try not to stop even at protected crossings. They always try to use the zig-zag open part to sneak pass when the gate is closed. It is discipline in driving we need to establish more than anything else.
