Police Doing RR Crossing Checks This Week

Cops will be looking for people who stop too close to or on top of the tracks or commit other infractions.

The Plainfield Police Department, working with Canadian National Railway police, will be conducting railroad crossing enforcement checks this week.

Among the ticketable offenses they'll be looking for are drivers who disobey activated railroad signals or stop on top of train tracks or within the railroad crossing. They'll also cite pedestrians who trespass on railroad right of way.

All violations mandate that the offender got to court and face fines of up to $750. Anyone convicted of stopping on the tracks will lose their license for 30 days.

I can't believe they will take your license for 30 days. There goes your job and your ability to support your families. This is like the Nazi's. Why don't they just shoot you and get it over with.

HUGO, are you serious, Deer and Suicides. You obviously never watch the news or read the paper. Im going to find the stat on suicides vs. car & pedestrian accidents. I can bet suicides are not even close. Get Real.............I know in the past Plfd PD has had train vs vehicles and train vs pedestrians.
