As a practicing attorney involved in personal injury suits initiated as the result of railroad crossing accidents, the author of this article shares a sense of guilt with other trial attorneys for the unsettled and confusing legal ruins left by recent efforts to moderate the statutory interpretations applicable to railroad crossing accidents. The history of the contradictions in the development of railroad crossing law and an alternative statutory interpretation to resolve the inconsistencies evidenced by the courts is the subject of this article.
