Documentary about road safety, spoofed by MST3K (which is where I got the "placeholder" screenshots from).

That explains why there are so many new cars at the time of filming.

Made by Union Pacific Railroad, as you can probably tell:

This documentary mainly focuses on road safety in relation to railway crossings and the correct ways of approaching them in particular rural areas, the lessons on how to approach railway crossings safely include:

Crossing signal setup - While most crossings in rural areas are fitted with the lights and bells, some crossings are fitted with the simple crossbuck signs, when approaching a crossing that has the lights flashing and the bell ringing, stop and wait for the train to pass through and the for lights to stop flashing and for the bell to stop ringing.

In cases of approaching crossings fitted with the crossbuck signs, stop and look both ways before processing across.

Crossings with double tracks - While most railway crossings have one track, some have two tracks, when stopped at a crossing that has two tracks and had a train pass through, don't cross straight away as there may be another train on the other track.

Approaching crossings at night-time - Approaching crossings at night-time are different than approaching the crossings in the day-time, while the crossings at night are in the same spot as in the day-time, take extra care when approaching the crossings at night-time vision is limited by the vehicle's headlights as some parts in rural areas are unlit at night.

Beating the train to the crossings - When seeing a train approaching a crossing, don't try to beat the train across the crossing, as it is hard to judge the speed of the train.
