R.E.B. Alert

Here's a brief look at what’s happening in the world of FRA Regulations.

Part 234 – ?Systems for Telephonic Notification of Unsafe Conditions at Highway-Rail and Pathway Grade Crossings _?The purpose of this document is to update the current schedule of civil penalties for violations of FRA's grade crossing safety regulations by adding recommended civil penalty amounts for violations of specific requirements contained in a recently added subpart. That subpart prescribes requirements that certain railroads establish emergency notification systems (ENS) for receiving toll-free telephone calls reporting various unsafe conditions at highway-rail grade crossings and pathway grade crossings, and for taking certain actions in response to those calls.
Dates: This regulation was effective May 28, 2015.
