An Act To Improve Safety on Railroad Rights-of-way
Sec. 1. 23 MRSA §7007, as repealed and replaced by PL 2003, c. 452, Pt. L, §12 and affected by Pt. X, §2, is amended to read:
§ 7007. Penalty for being on track or bridge or entering track with team or vehicle
This bill expands the prohibition on being on or crossing a railroad track or bridge by including railroad rights-of-way and persons crossing at other than designated crossing locations. This bill also increases the civil penalty and clarifies liability for a person being on or crossing a railroad track or right-of-way and makes repeat violations and colliding with a train or railroad equipment crimes.
