Zuniga Macias, Butterfield, MN ASK A TROOPER BY TROY CHRISTIANSON Question: Can you talk about railroad crossing safety and the laws that cover it? Answer: I have responded to and investigated a number of train/vehicle crashes in my career. A majority of them resulted in fatal or serious injuries to the vehicle occu- pants. In Minnesota, failure to yield the right of way, disregard of a traffic con- trol device, improper turn and inattention and impatience are cited as the most common factors contributing to motor vehicle/train crashes. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has worked to share the fol- lowing rail safety tips: 1. Yield the fight-of-way to trains at highway-rail cross- ings. It's the law. 2. Never drive around low- ering gates, it's illegal and deadly. 3. Never race a train to the crossing; even if it is a tie, you lose. 4. Always expect a train on the tracks; trains do not fol- low set schedules. 5. Look for a second train when crossing multiple tracks. 6. Exit your vehicle immedi- ately if it stalls on the cross- ing, get clear of the tracks and call 911. 7. Always stop your vehicle, behind the white line when crossing gates are down or lights are flashing. Wait for the crossing gates to rise and lights to stop flashing; look both ways, listen and proceed with caution. The chance of death or serious injury from a motor vehicle/train crash is 11 times greater than for other high- way collisions. At 50 mph, it takes a fully-loaded freight train 1.5 miles to come to a full-stop. By the time the train engineer sees a vehicle or pedestrian on the tracks, it is often too late. Because of their size, approaching trains may appear to be traveling at a slower speed therefore driv- ers often misjudge the dis- tance of the train. As a bicyclist or pedes- trian you must always look both ways before crossing railroad tracks, cross only in designated areas and never cross when gates are down. Railroad tracks and property close to the tracks (railroad "right-of-way") belong to the railroad. People who don't have permission to be on rail- road property are trespass- ing. Even if there is not a "No Trespassing" sign, it's still illegal and dangerous to be on the property. You can avoid a ticket - and a crash - if you sim- ply buckle up, drive at safe speeds, pay attention and of course, drive sober. Help us drive Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths. If you ha;re any q uestion concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minnesota send your questions to Sgt. Troy Christianson - Minnesota State Patrol at 2900 48th Street NW, Rochester MN 55901-5848.

Windom Citizen - Wmdomnet is weighing its options to upgrade equipment, following an outage earlier this month that interrupted service for nearly two days. Windomnet General Manager, Jeff Dahna, said that much of the equipment that is in the main hub and almost all of the connections on homes and businesses, is original equipment from when the system first came online in 2005. According to Dahna to bring the entire customer base onto E7 servers would require hardware changes at every home and business on the system. To upgrade the core will take somewhere between $500,000 and 750,000.
