    You have to hope iRobot doesn’t come true as if we can’t manually open a railroad crossing and have people do manual controls until it is fixed just wait until somebody hacks and entire traffic grid or worse. I was down there during this and it was ridiculous. They had 4 police / security guards for an event down there and were just standing on the tracks. Hello, manually open the arms and give people signs to stop traffic when a train comes. They only come through every few hours.
