SDB Powerpoints Present
This presentation is to show you some statistics on Railroad Crossing Accidents and what you can do to prevent them.
In the next slide, we will present a movie prepared by Operation Lifesaver dealing with school buses and Rail Crossings. It really is a eye opening film.
The law regarding grade crossings in Pennsylvania is: • You must activate your emergency flashers before stopping. • Stop no less than 15 feet from the closest rail, and no more than 50 feet. • You must stop, loaded or unloaded, and set your parking brake, bus in neutral. • All electrical equipment, fans, heaters, radios, etc. must be turned off. Ask students to be quiet. • The driver's side window and the service door must be opened, so that the driver can better see and hear. Again, Quiet bus! • The door is then closed, brake released and placed back in gear, then bus proceeds smoothly over track. After crossing, the flashers are turned off. If you are driving a manual transmission bus, proceed over the crossing WITHOUT stopping or shifting gears.
There is NO EXCUSE for an accident to occur between a School Bus and a Train. Be professional, and do the crossing correctly, and you will never be added to the statistics.
