Freight trains travel up to 105 km/h and can take up to two minutes to come to a complete stop - the average 150-car freight train traveling 100 km/h needs about 2,500 meters to stop. An automobile traveling at 90 km/h requires about 60 meters to stop. Trains can't stop as quickly as automobiles can.
