Police enforcement will be added to railroad crossings in the Bonner Springs area after an increase in motorists ignoring railroad crossing signs was noticed.

The Officer on a Train Program was used by the Union Pacific Railroad as well as the Union Pacific Crossing Accident Reduction, Education and Safety.

The purpose of the officer on a train program is to give law enforcement a different view of what it is like for motorists at railroad intersections. A police officer will take a short train ride where they can observe how crew members handle safety issues and how they area trained to do so.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a railroad accident, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the compensation for your injuries.
