Section 4963.40 | Rules and regulations governing the construction and maintenance of telephone and telegraph wires.


The public utilities commission shall determine standards of maintenance and operation and the nature, location, and character of the construction to be used where telegraph, telephone, electric light, power, or other electric wires of any kind cross or more or less parallel the line of a railroad, interurban railroad, or other public utility, and to this end shall formulate and issue rules, regulations, and complete detailed specifications covering each class of construction, maintenance, and operation of such electric wire crossing or parallel, under the various conditions existing. The commission, upon complaint of any person, railroad, interurban railroad, or public utility claiming to be injuriously affected or subjected to hazard, shall, after hearing, make such order and prescribe such conditions for the construction, maintenance, and operation of the lines, plants, or systems, as seems just and reasonable to it.
