BNSF challenges Oklahoma grade-crossing law

Posted by Broadway Lion on Fri Aug 23 13:28:07 2019

BNSF Railway Co. is challenging in federal court an Oklahoma law that requires railroads operating in the state to minimize blocking grade crossings for longer than 10 minutes without good reason, an Oklahoma newspaper reported today.

The suit, which the Class I filed yesterday in Oklahoma City, targets Oklahoma's elected corporation commissioners and two cities' police departments that have cited the railroad for violations so far, The Oklahoman reported.

BNSF asserts that railroad operations are governed by federal agencies.
