Chappaqua, NY: Citations issued at Roaring brook Road level crossing

A motorist from a neighbouring community has been issued a summons for obstruction of the Roaring Brook Road level crossing in Chappaqua, The woman was travelling towards the west when her car was stopped in traffic when the lights activated and a barrier came down on her car.

Amazingly, while police remained in attendance at the crossing, two further motorists were issued with citations for offences at the level crossing.
