Remember to check for trains before crossing any railway tracks. Slow down and cross at an angle between 45 to 90 degrees to prevent the wheels from getting caught in the tracks.
It is necessary to turn when you want to cross something that is running parallel to your course, such as railway or streetcar tracks, ruts in the middle of the road or a pavement seam. To cross something running parallel to you, move away far enough to be able to cross it at an angle. Then make a quick sharp turn. Do not try to edge across it. It could catch your tires and upset your balance.
