Supreme Court Passes On Blocked Railroad Crossings Case

(ONN) – The U.S. Supreme Court will not review a case about blocked railroad crossings.

Ohio and 19 other states asked the court to review the case which would have allowed local prosecutors to go after railroads who block crossings.

As of now, there are no federal statutes governing how long a train can block a crossing.

According to the Union County prosecuting attorney, blocked railroads are a major safety issue.
