Overdriving your headlights (when the vehicle in front of you is within your headlights' range) at night is dangerous because:

Correct! Wrong!

Your headlights' range shows an approximate distance that you should keep from the vehicle in front of you. If the vehicle you are following gets into your headlights, it means you are too close and you cannot stop within a safe distance if need be.

The two-second rule is used to determine:

Correct! Wrong!

A safe following distance is at least two seconds behind the vehicle you are following. This lets you see around the vehicle ahead and gives you enough distance to stop suddenly. To estimate the time, wait until the rear end of the vehicle in front of you passes any distinct and fixed point on the roadway (e.g. a road sign, mailbox, line/crack/patch in the road). However, don't take your eyes off the vehicle for more than a second or that would defeat the purpose. As you count to yourself the elapsed time in seconds, the front of your car should pass the same point no less than two seconds later. If the elapsed time is less than this, increase the distance, then repeat the method again until the time is at least 2 seconds.

You are required to keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you. You should keep at least a ____ space between your vehicle and the one ahead.

Correct! Wrong!

Although very rare (only 5% of accidents are caused by brake failure), it is still crucial to know what to do should brake failure occur. 1) If you are driving a car with a manual transmission, downshift as quickly as you can without losing control of the car. Don't shift into first or second gear too suddenly;wait until the car has slowed somewhat. If you are in a car with an automatic transmission, shift down one gear at the time. The first of the low gears is usually labeled "1." 2) Apply a mild pumping action to the brake pedal to build up some pressure, allowing you to stop in a safe manner (do this even if you do have ABS brakes). 3) Apply the parking brake gently but firmly. Apply this brake gradually to avoid locking your wheels.
