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
