Operation Lifesaver, Inc. (OLI) has updated its ProDriver Challenge eLearning program. The program helps drivers prepare to make safe choices when navigating railroad crossings along their routes. OLI updated the program after statistics from the Federal Railroad Administration revealed approximately one in four railroad crossing collisions in the U.S. involve tractor-trailer trucks and other vehicles requiring a Commercial Driver License.
The ProDriver Challenge offers an interactive online learning experience for CDL drivers, putting users at the controls of a virtual dashboard where they make important safety decisions as the driver of a box truck or 18-wheeler.
“In the simulated driving environment of the ProDriver Challenge, drivers are exposed to several driving scenarios that demand quick thinking and critical decision-making,” said OLI Executive Director Rachel Maleh. “This virtual learning environment allows drivers to learn from mistakes without real-world consequences while mastering essential safety signs, signals and best practices. Working together, we can stop track tragedies.”
Signups for the ProDriver Challenge are available on OLI’s website.
