A few years ago the tracks on Hillyer-Robinson Parkway had large holes on both sides of the tracks. I had driven over that crossing the day before and everything was normal. The next day, I drove over it at night and almost got a concussion from hitting the roof while driving under the speed limit. There was no warning about a “ bump.” They are now working again on the same area with a large “bump.” Again, no warning.
Everyone else puts up warnings as a safety precaution. The rail company should have to put up warning signs or be held responsible for any damages. I did find out a couple of years after the first incident to go to the railroad crossing and get the telephone number to call if your car sustained damage. Of course, it was too late for me to make a claim.
The holes they create are more dangerous than any I have encountered anywhere else that actually gives you a warning. So why doesn’t the rail company have to put up signs warning motorists?
