The yellow MetroRail signs along the train tracks at Ohlen are not legal traffic stop sign for the purposes of an officer being able to enforce it. They are meant to only draw the driver’s attention to be aware that they need to cross with caution and look for a possible oncoming train. In order for it to be an enforceable stop sign it must be of regulation size. This is simply an attention getting sign to be wary at the train tracks. A stop is not necessary unless the train track arms are down or the red train track lights are flashing.
