This complies completely with OSHA requirements for crossing a road. It fails the brain fart test, however. How and why trains stay on tracks must have never entered into the minutiae of the decision when faced with this dilemma. “Cross road? Protect hose. Roger that, over.” It really begs for a train to pop the balloon. Sent to us by LawBob Squarepants.
It’s also myopic proof of how government (read VA) approaches any conundrum and their “one-size-fits-all” mentality.
