      Railroad crossing costing drivers big bucks

      If you drive along Mock Road you may have noticed a set of railroad tracks that aren't as smooth when you drive across them.

      Drivers are speaking out about the money they are spending and the damage it's causing to their cars.

      Dannetter Kaupp has crossed those tracks for more than 60 years and says she's had enough with the poor and unkempt condition.

      "The spikes sticking up can puncture a tire," says Kaupp. "It can do damage underneath your car to your axel to your tires, your shocks, any part underneath your car that has to vibrate going across that crossing."

      Albany City Commissioner Jon Howard says getting the tracks fixed isn't an easy fix.

      "It's a slow process but we certainly hope that as this gets out that they will see need to fix and improve this railroad track" added Howard.

      FOX 31 tried to find out which railroad company provides maintenance for the tracks, but could not confirm which company that is.
