What does the law say about approaching a train crossing?

You are driving on a California road when you spot a railroad crossing up ahead. If the gate is not dropped down, you might think you have no problem driving over the tracks. However, depending on the vehicle you drive, the law could require you to exercise greater caution while approaching a railroad crossing even if no train is approaching.

What is the law about railroad crews using mobile devices?

Everyone is aware of the laws regarding using mobile devices when driving a vehicle on California roadways. However, are there any rules for workers on trains? These are also vehicles, but traditional road laws do not apply because they are not traveling on roadways. According to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, the Federal Railroad Administration has set guidelines for mobile use for railroad workers operating a train.

What is paresis?

If the term paresis seems similar to the word paralysis, you would not be far off in thinking the two are related. The Very Well Health website describes paresis as a weakness in the limbs that can also manifest as paralysis. Like paralysis, paresis can result from a catastrophic injury and could cause great physical difficulties for California injury victims for the remainder of their lives.
