1) when the barrier is closed or starting to close (regardless of the traffic light signal);

2) at a prohibiting traffic light signal (regardless of the position and presence of the barrier);

3) at the forbidding signal of the officer on duty at the crossing (the officer on duty is facing the driver with his chest or back, in his raised hand – a rod, a red lantern or a flag, or with his arms extended to the sides);

2) stay near the vehicle and give general alarm signals;

3) when a train appears, run towards it, giving a stop signal.

The stop signal is a circular movement of the hand (during the day with a patch of bright matter or some visible object, at night – with a torch or lantern). The general alarm signal is a series of one long and three short beeps.
