Railroad Grade Crossing Enforcement Planned
The Plainfield Police Department will conduct enforcement details in the village during the week of Oct. 24.
The enforcement will include citing drivers that disobey activated railroad signals, stop their vehicles within the highway rail-grade crossing, and citing drivers of certain vehicles who fail to stop as required at railroad crossings, such as school buses and placard vehicles.
Pedestrian trespassing on railroad right-of-way will also be enforced.
Those cited for stopping within a highway rail-grade crossing driving a passenger vehicle will have their driver's license suspended for 30 days for the first offense, and three months for the second offense.
Those driving a vehicle required to stop at all times at all railroad crossings will have their commercial driver's license disqualified for three months.
All violations of the Illinois Vehicle Code mentioned will include a mandatory court appearance with fines and court costs.
