On-track Equipment Railroad Crossings


Colorado law requires a driver or operator of certain types of motor vehicles or equipment to, in certain circumstances, stop at a railroad crossing at a safe place, look for trains at the crossing, proceed safely through the crossing, not block the train's crossing, and obey signals. The act amends these safety provisions to apply to, in addition to trains, any equipment that operates on railroad tracks.(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
