If you watch this video, you'll notice that the arms that were supposed to go down to stop traffic from crossing the railroad tracks, never went down. Thankfully, this fed ex truck driver was not hurt. However, if he was hurt, there is liability on which ever entity controls those traffic arm devices. There is undoubtedly a duty to make sure those arms function correctly in all types of weather.
