FRA 224 Train Retro Reflective Marking Requirements (Regulation)

Trains and freight cars pose a great danger to passenger vehicles, should the two ever come in contact with each other.  Tractor trailer rigs are large, heavy and immovable, but freight cars are more so.  To reduce the incidences of train and passenger car collisions, the Federal Rail Association passed FRA 224, a regulation that requires all rail stock be clearly marked with retro reflective strips at specific intervals.  The regulation is posted below.
