DeKalb Prosecutor Frustrated with Railroad

The DeKalb County Prosecutor’s Office is not happy with CSX. WANE reports that the rail­road com­pany has racked up over 40 traf­fic tick­ets in less than six months, some­thing that Deputy Pros­e­cu­tor Erik Weber says is an unac­cept­able safety haz­ard with traf­fic remain­ing blocked for extended periods–sometimes up to 14 hours–elevating the chance that emer­gency vehi­cles will not be able to get to an inci­dent. The Prosecutor’s Office wanted to con­duct 42 sep­a­rate tri­als, one for each ticket, but a judge lumped the cita­tions into more man­age­able groups of eight or nine.
