Flagging shall be billed every calendar week, and shall be payable within 15 days of the date of invoice. Overdue bills shall be assessed interest at the then-current statutory judgment interest rate. Payments for Flagging are to be collected by and accrue solely to the AOK.
All contractors or other third parties using flagging services shall abide by any instructions given by the Flagger concerning railroad safety and/or security.
