WHEN YOU HEAR THE SIRENS OR SEE THE RED EMERGENCY LIGHTS OF A CLOSELY APPROACHING EMERGENCY VEHICLE, YOU MUST:

Correct! Wrong!

Yield the right of way to any emergency vehicle, making sure you are not creating a hazard for other drivers and not blocking the way. Drive to the right edge of the road and stop until the emergency vehicle(s) have passed. However, never stop in an intersection. If you are in an intersection when you see an emergency vehicle, continue through the intersection and then, drive to the right as soon as it is safe and stop.

DRIVERS WHO EAT AND DRINK WHILE DRIVING:

Correct! Wrong!

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.

YOU MAY DRIVE ACROSS A SIDEWALK TO:

Correct! Wrong!

Do not drive on a sidewalk, except to cross it to enter or exit a driveway or alley. When crossing, yield to all pedestrians.

THIS ROAD SIGN MEANS:

Correct! Wrong!

The railroad crossbuck sign is placed at railroad crossings where the tracks cross the roadway. The crossbuck sign can be treated in the same manner as a YIELD sign: slow down, listen for trains and be prepared to stop if you see or hear a train approaching.

THIS SIGN MEANS:

Correct! Wrong!

DIVIDED HIGHWAY ENDS. The divided highway on which you are traveling ends 350 to 500 feet ahead. You will then be on a roadway with two-way traffic. Keep to the right.

WHEN MAY YOU LEGALLY DRIVE AROUND OR UNDER A RAILROAD CROSSING GATE?

Correct! Wrong!

Do not go under lowering gates or around lowered gates. Flashing red lights indicate you must stop and wait. Do not proceed over the crossing until the red lights stop flashing, even if the gate rises. If the gates are lowered and you do not see a train approaching, call the posted railroad emergency toll-free number or 9-1-1. Be ready to give a detailed description of your location.

IF YOU NEED TO SLOW DOWN OR STOP WHEN OTHER DRIVERS MAY NOT EXPECT IT, YOU SHOULD:

Correct! Wrong!

Signaling when slowing down or stopping. Your brake lights tell other drivers you are slowing down or stopping. If you are going to brake where other drivers may not expect it, quickly tap your brake pedal three (3) or four (4) times.

THIS ROAD SIGN MEANS:

Correct! Wrong!

SCHOOL AHEAD. The shape of a pentagon is reserved for school signs. This five-sided sign means you are near a school. Watch for children.

THE CAR BEHIND YOU BEGINS TO PASS YOU. YOU SHOULD

Correct! Wrong!

When a vehicle passes you, you can help the passing driver by keeping to the far side of your lane. You’ll make it easier for the other driver if you reduce speed slightly. In any event, don’t speed up while the vehicle is passing. After passing, the other driver will signal to let you know that the car will be returning to your lane.

IF YOU SEE ORANGE CONSTRUCTION SIGNS AND CONES ON A FREEWAY, YOU MUST:

Correct! Wrong!

Orange construction signs tell you that you are approaching a work zone on the freeway. The road may narrow, there may be a flagger controlling traffic, workers and machinery may be on or near the freeway. Be prepared to meet all these challenges and do not speed. Keep ample distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you to avoid a rear-end collision.

ON A TWO WAY HIGHWAY, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DRIVE ON THE LEFT HALF OF THE ROADWAY WHEN

Correct! Wrong!

On a two-lane highway, you are allowed to drive on the left half of the roadway when it is safe to pass and passing is allowed. If the road has four or more lanes with two-way traffic, drive in the right lanes except when overtaking and passing.

WHAT ARE THE COLORS OF A SIGN WHICH TELLS YOU THE DISTANCE TO THE NEXT EXIT OF A HIGHWAY?

Correct! Wrong!

Guide signs, also known as destination signs, are green with white letters. Guide signs provide information about intersecting roads, help direct you to cities and towns, and show points of interest along the highway.

THE "THREE-SECOND RULE" APPLIES TO THE SPACE _________ OF YOUR VEHICLE.

Correct! Wrong!

Most rear end collisions are caused by tailgating. To avoid tailgating, use the “three-second rule”: when the vehicle ahead of you passes a certain point such as a sign, count “one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two, one-thousand-three.” Counting these numbers takes approximately three seconds. If you pass the same point before you finish counting, you are following too closely.

WHEN ROADS ARE SLIPPERY, YOU SHOULD:

Correct! Wrong!

Slow down at the first sign of rain, especially after a dry spell. This is when many roads are the most slippery, because oil and dust have not washed away. A slippery road will not give your tires the grip they need. Drive more slowly than you would on a dry road.

WHEN A TRAFFIC SIGNAL LIGHT IS NOT WORKING, YOU SHOULD:

Correct! Wrong!

Whenever there is a traffic signal blackout, proceed cautiously as if the intersection is controlled by “STOP” signs in all directions.

WHEN YOU DRIVE THROUGH AN AREA WHERE CHILDREN ARE PLAYING, YOU SHOULD EXPECT THEM:

Correct! Wrong!

Always reduce speed, and use extra caution when children are in the vicinity. They may fail to understand the danger and may run out in front of you without looking.

WORN OR BALD TIRES:

Correct! Wrong!

The vehicle cannot have bald tires, which would have less than 1/32 inch tread depth in any two adjacent grooves. Tires that are too worn will cause the vehicle to hydroplane at lower speed, increase the stopping distance and have an increased chance of failure. Make sure to check your tires wear and alignment regularly and replace them as needed.

WHEN PARKING DOWNHILL AND THE CURB IS ABSENT, YOUR FRONT WHEELS MUST BE TURNED:

Correct! Wrong!

When parking a vehicle facing downhill on a street with or without a curb: The hand brake should be set and the vehicle’s wheels should be turned toward the curb. The vehicle should be in park or, with a manual transmission, in reverse.
