Lawmaker proposes adding cameras at railroad crossings
State Sen. Terrence Murphy is proposing legislation to install traffic cameras at the crossings.
The issue has become a major concern since six people died in Valhalla when a Metro-North train slammed into an SUV at a busy railroad crossing back in February.
Murphy addressed the issue at the Katonah station Monday, saying he wants to install traffic cameras at all railroad crossings and then ticket violators.
If the law passes, municipalities would still have the option to not install cameras.
