Law Enforcement & First ResponderEnforcement

FRA works closely with Law Enforcement Agencies across the United States to improve railroad crossing safety and trespass prevention.  Remember, it is illegal to disregard posted signs and placards at railroad crossings or drive around, under, or through crossing gates.

The only safe place to cross is at a designated public crossing with either a crossbuck, flashing red lights and/or a gate. If you cross at any other place, you are trespassing and can be ticketed or fined. For more information regarding FRA's law enforcement efforts, please click the icon to the right.
