It is a well-known result that almost all sample paths of a Brownian motion or Wiener process {W(t)} have infinitely many zero-crossings in the interval (0, δ) for δ > 0. Under the Kac condition, the telegraph process weakly converges to the Wiener process. We estimate the number of intersections of a level or the number of level-crossings for the telegraph process. Passing to the limit under the Kac condition, we also obtain an estimate of the level-crossings for the Wiener process.
