Police to Increase Patrols Around Oswego Railway Crossings
Sep 09, 2016 06:23AM ● Published by Steven Jack
Enforcement details are planned throughout the week at various local railroad grade crossings and railroad right-of-ways to address violations of both drivers and pedestrians who disobey the laws associated with railroad grade crossings and railroad property.
As a reminder, not only is it against the law to stop your vehicle on railroad tracks, it is also against the law to stop your vehicle anywhere within the highwayrail grade crossing.
Highway-rail grade crossings are typically marked by white stop lines located on the pavement in advance of the crossing, and if not marked by white stop lines, the highway-rail grade crossing extends from protective gate arm to protective gate arm.
