I have just seen this on the bbc news website and honestly it shocked me:
How is that this man was only fined? Mistake or no mistake, confusion or no confusion he took the life of someone else because he was not paying attention and not doing his job! And is a human life only worth 1,750 pounds? I also note that in the story he mentions nothing of his remorse for taking the life of someone, he may not have done it on purpose but the fact is for his mistake he took a life for something that could have been avoided.Level crossing death: Signalman and Network Rail fined
Network Rail and one of its signalmen have been fined for failing to ensure the safety of a woman killed when a train hit a car at a level crossing.
Jane Harding, 52, died when the car she was in was struck at Moreton-on-Lugg, Herefordshire, in January 2010.
Birmingham Crown Court heard Adrian Maund, 43, from Caswell Crescent, Leominster, had raised safety barriers shortly before the crash.
He was fined £1,750, while Network Rail was given a £450,000 fine.
Maund was also ordered to complete 275 hours of unpaid work.
Both were found guilty of health and safety regulations following a two-week trial in February.
