Law Enforcement Targetting Railroad Crossing Violations

If you're one of those people who try to squeeze under the crossing arm or drive around it at railroad tracks, you better watch yourself today. The Union Pacific Police Department are conducting a selective enforcement operation targeting traffic violators at railroad crossings in the city of Spokane.

Crossings between North Havana and North Haven Street will be targeted.
The heavy daily load of vehicle traffic traversing these crossings is potentially hazardous and a cause of concern for safe railroad operations. Violations are common at these locations and collisions have occurred.
