LOOK CAREFULLY FOR MOTORCYCLES BEFORE YOU CHANGE LANES BECAUSE:
Due to the smaller size, motorcycles are much harder to see than regular vehicles. Motorcyclists are recommended to wear bright and light-reflective clothes, keep the headlight on even during daylight hours and flash their brake lights before slowing down.
PREPARING TO SMOKE AND SMOKING WHILE DRIVING:
Eating, drinking and smoking are big distractions when it comes to driving. These all create safety problems because they often require you to take your hands off of the wheel and take your eyes off of the road. Drivers who eat or drink while driving have trouble controlling their vehicle, staying in their lane and have to brake more often.
THIS RED AND WHITE SIGN MEANS:
The WRONG WAY sign may or may not be posted with the DO NOT ENTER sign. If you see one or both of these signs, drive to the side of the road and stop. You are going against traffic. When safe, back out or turn around and return to the road you were on. At night if you are going the wrong way, the road reflectors will shine red in your headlights.
THIS SIGN IS USED TO PREVENT:
DO NOT ENTER. The sign is usually installed at the beginning of one-way streets and ramps and it prohibits drivers from entering a one-way roadway where traffic is moving in the opposite direction. A DO NOT ENTER traffic sign is usually installed together with the "WRONG WAY" sign.
YOU ARE AT A RED TRAFFIC SIGNAL. THE TRAFFIC LIGHT TURNS GREEN, BUT THERE ARE STILL OTHER VEHICLES IN THE INTERSECTION. YOU SHOULD:
Give the right-of-way to any vehicle, bicyclist, or pedestrian already in the intersection. While the green signal certainly means go, vehicles that entered the intersection before the light turned green have the right-of-way over you.
AT NIGHT, IF AN ONCOMING VEHICLE FAILS TO DIM ITS HIGH-BEAMS, LOOK:
If another driver does not dim his or her lights, look toward the right edge of your lane to avoid being blinded. Do not try to “get back” at the other driver by keeping your bright lights on. If you do, both of you may be blinded and it can lead to an accident.
THIS WHITE SIGN MEANS:
KEEP RIGHT. The sign marks a traffic island or a highway divider and it warns you to stay to the right of the obstacle. When this sign is installed at a highway, it may also be accompanied by the "DIVIDED HIGHWAY BEGINS" yellow warning sign.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE YOUR EMERGENCY FLASHERS WHEN:
Never stop on the road, unless necessary for safety or to obey a law. If you need to stop, then start braking early as a signal to the cars behind you. If your vehicle breaks down on the road, make sure that other drivers can see it by putting on your emergency lights.
BEFORE CHANGING LANES ON A MULTI-LANE HIGHWAY YOU SHOULD:
Before changing lanes, signal, look in all your mirrors, check traffic behind and beside you. Glance over your left or right shoulder to make sure the lane you want is clear. Check for vehicles, motorcyclists, and bicycle traffic in your blind spot. Be sure there is enough room for your vehicle in the next lane.
YOU MUST USE YOUR SEAT BELT:
Always use your seat belts (including the shoulder harness) even if the vehicle is equipped with air bags. You can have shoulder harnesses or seat belts installed in older vehicles. You and all passengers must wear a seat belt or, you and/or your passenger(s) may be cited. If the passenger is under 16 years of age, you may be cited if he or she is not wearing his or her seat belt.
TWO SETS OF SOLID DOUBLE YELLOW LINES TWO FEET OR MORE APART:
Two sets of solid double yellow lines spaced 2 feet or more apart are considered a barrier. Do not drive on or over this barrier or make a left turn or a U-turn across it except at designated openings
A TRAFFIC LIGHT IS RED, BUT A POLICE OFFICER IS TELLING YOU TO GO AHEAD ANYWAY. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
If a traffic officer signals you to stop at a green light, for example, you must stop. If an officer signals you to drive through a red light or stop sign, you must do it. Among the persons authorized to direct traffic are police officers, fire police, highway work area flag persons and school crossing persons.
