Trolleys and Trains

Light rail vehicles or trolleys have the same rights and responsibilities on public roadways as other vehicles. Although everyone must follow the same traffic laws, trolleys require exceptional handling ability because of their size. Look for approaching trolleys before you turn across the tracks. If there is a crossing signal, complete your turn only if the signal indicates that you may proceed.

Railroads that have warning signs, red lights, and gates are called controlled railroad crossings. In some rural areas, uncontrolled railroad crossings are found with no signals, signs, or gates. Be extra alert when crossing an uncontrolled railway crossing. Remember that the train always has the right-of-way.
