It is never a good time to try and beat a train across railroad tracks, especially when law enforcement officers are on the train looking for drivers who fail to stop for an approaching train.
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office is working with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, and the Kansas Highway Patrol will watch the tracks from 10:30 a.m. Tuesday until 1:30 p.m.
Deputies will ride the trains to observe and report drivers who fail to stop for approaching trains. The fines are hefty. Violations carries a $195 fine in addition to $100 court costs.
