You arrive at a railroad crossing with a lowered gate and flashing red signals. How close to the crossing may you stop?
You must stop at least 10 feet from any railroad crossing with a lowered gate or flashing red signals. (Note: Other states may require you to stop farther away. When traveling out of state, always check the local traffic laws.) [Railroad Crossings, Seeing Well While Driving, Part IV: Operating a Motor Vehicle, State of Maine Motorist Handbook and Study Guide]
