Default Why no gates?

Hi all! Yesterday, I was railfanning in Janesville WI, and there was a crossing (see the link below) that a train switching crossed over probably 20 times and they didnt have gates on it. They flaged it sometimes, but when they didnt, people blew through, even when the warning lights were on, and getting missed by feet it seemed. I know that they would hold up traffic for longer, and I also know the trains don't go fast through there, but judging by what I saw yesterday, I think something should be done. Ideas or opinions? Thanks.
