On Wednesday, July 29, cops will be swarming near light-rail crossings, busting drivers who fail to stop for red lights, make "hazardous u-turns in front of the trains," stop on the tracks or drive past flashing signals and crossing arms.
Recent collisions with trains were caused by drivers disregarding traffic signals, says a Tempe police news release. Local residents also have been calling police to complain about the risky actions of some drivers near trains.
Fines will range from $70 to $171.
