Last week, an LIRR train struck a vehicle that was stopped between the gates in Hewlett. The women driving the car was not seriously injured because the train only clipped the car, but other commuter train accidents have been much worse, such as the Westchester crash which killed 6 people. Police have stepped up their enforcement of grade crossing violations on Long Island and have handed out numerous traffic tickets for offenses such as stopping on the tracks, driving distracted at grade crossings, and going around crossing gates. If you are issued a traffic ticket for any of these offenses, please contact us at 212-227-9008 to see how we may help you.
