I see news stories about trains blocking roads for hours lately. What do the railroad CEOs do about these complaints?

"April 14, 2022
Trains block roads for minutes, hours and sometimes days here in Atlanta and across the state. Our investigation found it's only getting worse.
There were 131 train complaints in 2020. In 2021 that jumped to 471. This year, we're already at 384 complaints in Georgia. That's quadruple this same time last year."

"May. 3, 2022 at 8:41 PM PDT
SOMERVILLE, Texas (KBTX) -Concerns are mounting over trains blocking crossings in Somerville. For some, Itís an inconvenience but for others, they say itís a safety hazard.
Residents say sometimes multiple crossings near the BNSF Railyard in Somerville are blocked leaving residents having to travel miles to get around."

  Ground conductors would go home after shift, not to a hotel. Scheduled like yard jobs Ground chuck 05-16-2022 - 11:12
