ars 28 853 | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog - Breyer Law Offices, P.C.
Although you’ve heard of Arizona train collisions it doesn’t stop you from being annoyed every time a bus or large truck stops before the train tracks when there’s no train coming. This stop is all about train safety and helping to stop the occurrence of train accidents throughout the state. ARS 28-853 requires school buses, vehicles for hire, and vehicles carrying explosives to stop no less than 15 feet from the beginning of the railroad tracks. At the same time, these vehicles are not permitted to stop more than 50 feet from the beginning of a railroad track. Upon starting safely across the tracks, no vehicle is allowed to enter the tracks in a gear that requires shifting while on the tracks. This last restriction prevents drivers from becoming stuck and creating a serious and dangerous hazard.
