Spokane police are teaming up today with enforcement officers from the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads for an enforcement campaign along rail crossings in northeast Spokane.

Officers will be watching for motorists who disobey crossing signals along the two railroads between North Haven and North Havana streets through 2:30 p.m. Both railroads operate 24 hours a day on their main lines through Spokane with busy crossings located in northeast Spokane.

This is one of my favorite ‘stings’ area police do because they always catch lots of people and it’s a no-brainer that you shouldn’t try to sneak under the crossing arms or beat them coming down when the lights start to flash. Do you have a favorite ‘sting?’ Maybe it’s a crosswalk sting, a jaywalking sting, a john sting, etc. Let us know.
