Queensland Rail has released alarming vision showing near misses involving pedestrians and cars on their rail network.
One clip shows a man at Dakabin, north of Brisbane, running across train tracks to make a train approaching on the opposite platform.
He was almost hit by the oncoming train after tripping over his sandal.
Another clip shows a driver ignoring the train approaching lights at a level crossing in Salisbury, in Brisbane's south.
The driver is stuck between two boom gates and manages to reverse through one of the boom gates seconds before the train passed.
There were 202 near misses at Queensland Rail level crossings last financial year.
The highest number of instances were on the Beenleigh line with 64, followed by the Cleveland line with 32 and the Caboolture line with 27.
