Comments
Persons are not allowed to cross interstates unless provisions are made for safe passage because of the speed of traffic, There is frankly no difference with the railroads. Remember, train crews must live with the poor judgement of the trespasser.

RR rights of way isolate large swaths of hunt able and fishable public lands. Safety is important but needs to be balanced by access rights to public lands.
