Q. What are the laws on trains blocking highway crossings in my state?
There are no federal regulations on how long a train can block a crossing
Most states codes regulate the time limit for blocking crossings
Search for your state codes on the FindLaw website
If your state code is not online, your public library should be able to find it in print or in a database
