It is against the law to drive your vehicle through, around, or under a closed railroad
gate. It is also against the law to pass another vehicle at a railroad crossing.
The driver of every vehicle shall drive at a safe, reduced speed when
approaching and crossing any public or private railroad grade crossing.
By law, drivers must STOP not less than 15 feet from the nearest

rail when:

1. Flashing lights, lowered gates, or a flagman signals the
approach or passage of a railroad train.
2. You see a train or hear its whistle.
3. When there is a STOP sign at the crossing.

After bringing the vehicle to a full STOP when
required in the above cases, the motor vehicle may be driven across the
tracks when it is safe to do so. NOTE: Pedestrians, bicyclists, and moped
riders also must observe railroad warning signals and may not cross
railroad tracks until it is safe to do so.
