Texas Hazardous Railroad Crossings
Although every railroad crossing is potentially dangerous, approximately half (around 5,000) of the grade crossings in Texas have no gates or flashing light signals to warn drivers of approaching trains. Some of these crossings are made even more dangerous by the presence of trees, overgrown vegetation, buildings, and other temporary and permanent obstructions that prevent car, motorcycle, and even truck drivers from being able to cross the intersection safely using ordinary care.
In Texas, any crossing that requires more than just a crossbuck (railroad crossing sign) to sufficiently alert drivers of a train’s presence is classified as an extra-hazardous crossing and railroad operators have a duty to use extraordinary measures to warn drivers of an approaching train at these intersections.
