Putting up signs does nothing to fix the problem nor does more impractical laws.

Make the area truck accessible if its used by lots of trucks.

If the train operators cant see or cant stop, slow them down. If the crossing is too high of a hump, require it to be lowered or otherwise be made safe and usable.

Its an interference to interstate commerce not to make the road safe and usable by trucks.

As a professional truck driver myself, if you cant read the F&*%King signs, you ought not be driving a big rig.  This is not a NS problem.

Requiring trains to slow down (and they would have to pass through Blawnox very slowly to avoid damaging trucks if there were collisions) also interferes with interstate commerce.  For some reason, you are placing a higher value on interstate truck commerce than interstate rail commerce.
