Highway-Rail Grade Crossing; Safe Clearance

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.
FMCSA and PHMSA propose to amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) and Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs), respectively, to prohibit a motor vehicle driver from entering onto a highway-rail grade crossing unless there is sufficient space to drive completely through the grade crossing without stopping. This action is in response to section 112 of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Authorization Act of 1994. The intent of this rulemaking is to reduce highway-rail grade crossing crashes.
