DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AB04 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety 
Abstract: PHMSA and FMCSA would amend the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) to prohibit a motor vehicle driver from entering onto a highway-rail grade crossing unless there is sufficient space to drive completely through the grade crossing without stopping. This action is in response to Section 112 of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Authorization Act of 1994 and section 32509 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012. The intent of this rulemaking is to reduce highway-rail grade crossing crashes.
