Police in southern Idaho are looking to reduce serious accidents between vehicles and trains by conducting enforcement as a way to spread awareness.
Police ride locomotives and look for violators at railroad crossings to either warn motorist or ticket if the offense is serious enough.
“It’s still a danger. It’s still a problem. We need to care of it and it’s something we’re seeing quite a bit,” Trooper Nathan Medenford from ISP explained.
Authorities say they handed out over 30 citations or warnings during the operation.
