The city of Knoxville studied this - actually by studying video of real cyclists crashing in the real world at real track crossings! - and determined: 'Crash rates are reduced dramatically at approach angles greater than 30°, and practically non-existent at angles greater than 60°.'

They laid down some more pavement to make the crossings safer.
