Every railroad company operating a railroad or part of a railroad within this state shall adjust, fill, or block all angles in frogs, switches, and crossings on its railroads and in its yards, divisional stations, and terminal stations where trains are made up, with sheet steel, wrought or malleable iron, or other metallic appliances, which shall be so placed and be of such design as will prevent the wedging of the feet of employees and other persons in such angles. All such appliances or devices shall be approved by the public utilities commission before installation. Whoever, owning, operating, or controlling a railroad fails to comply with this section shall forfeit twenty-five dollars for each day of such failure, to be recovered in a civil action in the name of the state and paid into the state treasury.
