An Iveco Crossway has been converted into an interactive road safety classroom used to train 1,500 children in the Czech Republic. The safety-oriented educational programme, attended by 1,500 school students, aims to raise awareness of causes of accidents such as inattention, speeding, inappropriate driving, alcohol, or substance use, and their consequences on the roads.

The bus has been fitted with a bicycle simulator which replicates off-road, on-road or city traffic, a motorcycle driving simulator which allows students to put themselves in the shoes of other road users and learn how to manage traffic situations on a motorcycle, and a car simulator in which students can experience the risks of driving while talking on the phone or texting, as well as the consequences of speeding.
