5 Rules The game objective is to reach the Empire State Building by answering 12 questions correctly. You or your group play for higher and higher prize dollars as you answer questions correctly. If you answer a question incorrectly, your taxi does not advance and you or your team receive an X. Three incorrect answers (Xs) and the game is over. Continue

6 3 Strikes Wrong Three Strikes – You have to get out of the taxi. 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 $25 $50$75$100$250 $300 $200$150 $700 $600 $500 $400 X Correct Congratulations – you win. Here is the Empire State Building. Finale

7 It takes a 100-car freight train going 55 mph a mile or more to stop. This is equal to how many football fields? Home 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer Info B. 12 C. 18 A. 2 D. 25 Green tab below is for correct answer

8 Approximate Stopping Distances at 55 MPH HomeBack 200 Ft 230 Ft 300 Ft >5280 Ft 600 Ft

9 Green tab below is for correct answer At crossings where there is a stop sign or a signal on the other side of the tracks, how does the driver determine if there is enough room (containment or storage area) for the bus? 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer B. Theres always room following a crossing – the roads are designed that way. A. Know the length of your bus. If you have any doubt, dont take a chance. If it wont fit, dont commit. C. Get out of the bus and measure. D. Make a careful guess. HomeInfo

10 Each driver needs to know the length of their bus and the size of the storage or containment area on the other side of the crossing. So, know the length of you bus and add an extra 15 feet for safety! Remember, the train will be 3 feet wider than the rails on both sides. HomeBack

11 What causes drivers to misjudge whether it is safe to cross the tracks? 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. Trains change speed unexpectedly. D. An optical illusion fools the eye in judging the distance and speed of the train. C. They think the train can stop for them if needed. A. The trains warning horns cannot be heard. Green tab below is for correct answer

12 Speed Perception Trains appear to be traveling much slower than their actual speed because of their size and mass; much like a jet looks like they are almost hanging in mid air even though their final approach speed is over 150 mph. HomeBack

13 This sign tells you to: 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo A. Stop at this sign. B. Slow down and prepare to stop at a railroad crossing. C. Look and listen for trains. If you see one, decide if you need to stop or not. D. No trains cross here. Green tab below is for correct answer

14 Advance Warning Sign The round yellow sign, called an Advance Warning Sign, warns drivers that the road intersects with railroad tracks ahead. This sign tells us to slow down and be prepared to stop if a train is approaching. HomeBack

15 A school bus approaching a railroad crossing always has the right of way. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. True A. False C. It depends on the situation. Green tab below is for correct answer

16 False – Trains always have the right-of-way at railroad crossing. The laws of physics make it impossible for a train to stop quickly enough to prevent a collision HomeBack

17 If the bus stalls on a track, never try to restart the bus before evacuating the students. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. Try starting the bus three times, then evacuate the students. C. If the bus stalls, evacuate the students immediately. Look for an emergency notification sign posted near the crossing to call and report your problem, or call 911. A. Contact your dispatch office so they can notify the railroad, then evacuate the students. D. Call the local police and then evacuate the students. Green tab below is for correct answer

18 Evacuate Bus First! Then look for this sign, an Emergency Notification Sign (ENS), posted at or near a highway-rail grade crossing, lists a telephone number along with the crossing's US DOT number and is used to notify the railroad of an emergency or warning device malfunction.

19 This sign tells you to: 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. Yield to the train, no matter what vehicle you are driving. D. All of the above. C. There are multiple tracks at this crossing. A. Expect to see a train at this crossing. Green tab below is for correct answer

20 HomeBack This sign means: Expect to see a train at this crossing. Yield to the train, no matter what vehicle you are driving. There are multiple tracks at this crossing, 3 to be exact.

21 A stop sign at a railroad crossing means the same as a stop sign at any other intersection. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo A. False B. True Green tab below is for correct answer

22 STOP! TRUE - A stop sign at a railroad crossing means the same as a stop sign at any other intersection. HomeBack

23 A crossbuck is the most common warning sign at a railroad crossing. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo False True Green tab below is for correct answer

24 Crossbuck A railroad crossing is marked with a crossbuck sign, which should be considered the same as a YIELD sign. All motor vehicles should YIELD to trains. HomeBack =

25 Lowered gates and flashing red lights mean a train is approaching. Do not cross! 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo False True Green tab below is for correct answer

26 Lowered Gate and Flashing Red Lights Flashing Red Lights – with or without bells – warn of an approaching train. When the red lights are flashing, a train is approaching. Stop and wait for the train to pass, then proceed when it is clearly safe to do so. Flashing Red Lights – with bells and gates – warn that a train is approaching. It is illegal to go around lowered gates. HomeBack

27 If signals are malfunctioning at the crossing, you should: 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. Do not cross. Wait for a properly identified railroad flagman or law enforcement office to flag you across. D. All of the above. C. Find another route if help does not arrive. A. Contact your dispatch office. Notify the railroad about the problem. Green tab below is for correct answer

28 Malfunctioning Signals Only a police officer or properly-identified railroad flagman can direct you across a railroad crossing with malfunctioning signals. If there is no official flagman/police officer and you believe the signals are malfunctioning, do NOT proceed. HomeBack

29 If you have already started across the track and the gates begin to come down, continue to cross, do not hesitate. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo True False Green tab below is for correct answer

30 If you have already started across the track and the gates begin to come down, DO NOT STOP. Even if it means the bus will break the gate. HomeBack

31 If the gates remain down after a train passes through a railroad crossing with more than one set of tracks, it is a malfunction. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo True False Green tab below is for correct answer

32 When there is more than one set of tracks, another train could be approaching from either direction, hidden by the first train. At a multiple track crossing waiting for a train to pass, watch out for a second train on the other tracks, approaching from either direction. HomeBack

33 A number posted below a crossbuck sign indicates what? 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo B. The number of trains that cross those tracks each day. D. How many train tracks cross at that crossing. C. A railroad identification number. A. The speed you should cross the tracks. Green tab below is for correct answer

34 Multiple Track Sign The number on a multiple track sign indicates the number of tracks present at that crossing. After one train has passed, look and listen for another train coming from either direction. HomeBack

35 A train can avoid a collision if the locomotive engineer applies the brakes as soon as he sees a vehicle stalled on the tracks. 30292827262524232221201918171615141312111009080706050403020100 Start Timer Start Timer HomeInfo True False It depends on the weather. Green tab below is for correct answer

36 By the time a locomotive engineer can see a school bus on the tracks, it is too late to be able to avoid a collision. Trains cannot stop quickly, even after applying emergency brakes. HomeBack
