A driver in a hurry was spotted zooming though a red light but was instantly spotted by a police camera van parked on the other side.
The red lights have been showing for several seconds as the Audi A1 appears, whizzing over the rails as the safety barriers started to come down.
But the driver is set to receive a fine of up to £1,000 after being filmed by a British Transport Police (BTP) vehicle parked nearby.
The incident in Eastbourne, Sussex, last Tuesday was also captured on the dashcam of motorist identified only as "Sam A", who can be heard confidently declaring: "He's gonna get a ticket."
As Sam A approaches the crossing, a camera on a tripod can be seen in front of the police van pointing towards the barriers.
