10. a. A driver of a commercial motor vehicle, other than a commercial motor vehicle that is required to stop at a railroad crossing in accordance with R.S.39:4-128, shall, upon approaching a railroad grade crossing, drive at a rate of speed that will permit the commercial motor vehicle to be stopped before reaching the nearest rail of the crossing.

b. A driver of a commercial motor vehicle, other than a commercial motor vehicle that is required to stop at a railroad crossing in accordance with R.S.39:4-128, shall stop that commercial motor vehicle before reaching the nearest rail of the crossing, if the tracks of the crossing are not clear of other vehicles or if there is insufficient space to drive the commercial motor vehicle completely through the crossing without stopping the commercial motor vehicle.
