Arizona Practice Permit Test 5
THIS SIGN MEANS:
MERGING TRAFFIC. Traffic may be merging into your lane from another roadway. Be ready to either changes lanes or allow other traffic to merge into your lane. Merge signs appear on expressways just before expressway ramps. Drivers entering from the right must yield to traffic on the main route, and must make use of speed-change lanes to merge smoothly and safely with the main traffic flow.
A GREEN ARROW POINTING TO THE LEFT ON A TRAFFIC LIGHT MEANS YOU MAY:
A green arrow means “GO.” You must turn in the direction the arrow is pointing after you yield to any vehicle, bicyclist, or pedestrian still in the intersection. The green arrow allows you to make a “protected” turn. Oncoming vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians are stopped by a red light as long as the green arrow is lighted.
A POLICE OFFICER STOPS YOU BECAUSE HE SUSPECTS YOU ARE DUI. YOU REFUSE TO TAKE A CHEMICAL TEST. WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
If an officer suspects that you are under the influence of drugs, the officer can legally require you to take a blood or urine test. Drivers who refuse these tests are subject to longer driver license suspensions and revocations.
WHERE SHOULD YOU PARK WHEN YOU NEED HELP AFTER YOUR TIRE SUDDENLY DEFLATES WHILE DRIVING ON A HIGHWAY?
If you experience vehicle vehicle trouble, and need to stop, pull off the road away from all traffic, if possible. If you cannot get completely off the road, stop where people can see you and your vehicle from behind and turn on your emergency flashers. DO NOT stop just over a hill or just around a curve.
THIS ROAD SIGN MEANS:
SCHOOL CROSSING. As you approach this sign, slow down and watch for children crossing the road. Stop if necessary. Obey signals from any crossing guards.
YOU CAN DRIVE IN A CARPOOL LANE IF:
An HOV lane is a special lane used only for carpools, buses, motorcycles, or decaled low-emission vehicles. You may use a carpool/HOV lane or on-ramp if your vehicle carries the posted minimum number of people required for the carpool lane, or you drive a low-emission vehicle displaying a special DMV issued decal.
BEFORE GETTING OUT OF YOUR PARKED CAR ON THE TRAFFIC SIDE OF THE STREET, YOU SHOULD:
When you are ready to exit your vehicle, look carefully for passing vehicles, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. Do not open the driver’s side door unless it is safe to do so and you do not interfere with traffic. Do not leave the door open any longer than necessary.
AFTER PASSING A CAR, IT IS SAFE TO RETURN TO YOUR DRIVING LANE WHEN:
One way to make sure you are not creating a hazard for the driver you just passed is to look for the vehicle in your inside rear view mirror. When you can see both headlights in your rear view mirror, you have enough room to return to your driving lane. Do not count on having enough time to pass several vehicles at once or that other drivers will make room for you.
IF YOU EXIT A FREEWAY WITH A RAMP THAT CURVES DOWNHILL, YOU SHOULD:
On curves, there is a strong outward pull on your vehicle, which is especially dangerous when the road is slippery. Slow down before you enter the curve; you do not know what may be ahead (stalled car, collision, etc.).
