Then read it again.
> and and where you come up with the law and logic. As a 34 year California law enforcement veteran and additionally a locomotive engineman for 5 years before that I have a general idea, although maybe a bit dated, about laws in general.
I learned the logic from 40 years on the RR, 10-15 as an L/R (legislative representative), and from extensive interactions with my CPUC (Cal Public Utilities Commission) friend, and from discussions with FRA administrators in SACP meetings. If you don't know what an L/R is, then you never worked for a "real" railroad.

OK, let me clarify, a grade crossing accident is not a crime scene, so the cops have no legitimate reason to enter uninvited.
>I really don't believe any police officer would ever propose or attempt such a practice.
Once, I was involved in a grade crossing accident. When I was approached by one of the cops who responded, he was filling out a vehicular report of accident. I told him it was the wrong form because a train is not a motor vehicle. He started getting over inflated and huffy until the sergeant showed up and said that I was right, to use the property damage form, and that he didn't get to see my driver's license, which really disoriented him. Turns out the sergeant had formerly been a RR Special Agent. The cops discovered an open container in the guy's car, so they handcuffed him to the stretcher.
The best plan of action in grade crossing accidents is for the E to lock the cab doors, not let the cops in, and refer them to the C for details.
