Game Preps School Bus Drivers to Cross Railroad Tracks

Operation Lifesaver introduced the "Money Taxi" game Aug. 27 as schools around the country were beginning a new school year.

The railroad safety nonprofit Operation Lifesaver, Inc. has developed a new computer-based challenge for school bus drivers that will prepare them to cross railroad tracks safely. The game resembles a TV quiz show and can be played by an individual or as a challenge between teams, according to OLI.

"Our 'Money Taxi' game is a fun and interactive way for a school bus driver trainer or our trained volunteers to provide America's school bus drivers with the information they need to safely navigate highway-rail intersections," said Operation Lifesaver President Helen M. Sramek, who added that all motorists need to be aware that school bus drivers must stop at all railroad crossings, open the door, and look for trains before crossing. "We want drivers to be prepared to stop if they are behind a school bus at a railroad crossing and to use caution themselves at every highway-rail intersection," she said.

Operation Lifesaver has programs in all 50 states with trained volunteers providing free safety talks to community groups, school bus drivers, truck drivers, and student drivers. For information or to request a free safety presentation, visit www.oli.org.

OLI's "Decide Smart, Arrive Safe" training video for school bus drivers is priced at $10 and was produced in cooperation with the pupil transportation industry and U.S. DOT.
