In slow-moving city traffic, a driver should occasionally check their blind spots for which road users in particular?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: In slow-moving city traffic, you should be aware of and check your blind spots before any manoeuvre. Cyclists can easily become 'hidden' in a blind spot, and in slow-moving traffic, they might be moving faster than you are.

What should a driver do when approaching a junction with green traffic lights where there are elderly people crossing?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When approaching a junction with green traffic lights, you should never assume that you have an automatic right of way. You should be aware that some road users (such as elderly pedestrians) may need extra time to clear the junction.

When driving on a country road without footpaths, what should a driver look out for coming towards them on their side of the road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Pedestrian deaths account for one in five fatalities on our roads, so you should always be on the look-out for pedestrians, especially on country roads where there is no footpath.

When a driver intends to make a left-hand turn on a busy city street junction and there are pedestrians and cyclists around, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: The vehicle does not have a greater right-of-way than any other road user. As a driver you should pay particular attention to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists and be aware that they are entitled to use the road in safety.

What should a driver be aware of when making a left-hand turn?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: When you are turning left, you should be aware that cyclists and pedestrians may come up on your inside. Always check to your left before you make a left turn.

When driving on a road that has a potholed surface and there is a cyclist ahead, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should always be aware of how vulnerable cyclists are. When you are driving on a road with potholes or bad surfaces, take into account that they may have to swerve suddenly to avoid potholes.

What should a driver do if they see an elderly person crossing the road up ahead?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You must not put pedestrians at risk, and you must give way to them while they are crossing. Be cautious and patient with pedestrians, particularly if they are elderly or infirm.

When driving on a windy day and a cyclist is up ahead, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should never cut in front of cyclists when overtaking them. Give cyclists plenty of space especially in windy weather as they can easily be blown off course.

At traffic lights, a driver should take particular care for which road users coming up on the left?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Before moving off at traffic lights you should be aware of cyclists and motorcyclists coming up on the left in general — in particular where there is an advanced stop line for cyclists ahead of that for other road users.

What should a driver do when they see joggers ahead on the left?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: People on the road are more vulnerable than vehicles so you should treat them with care. If you see people jogging ahead, use the mirror—signal—mirror (blind spots)—manoeuvre routine and give sufficient clearance to the joggers when you are overtaking them.

At road junctions, what type of road users are particularly vulnerable?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: Vehicles do not have an automatic right of way at junctions. As a driver you should pay particular attention to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists and be aware that they are entitled to use the road in safety.

What should a driver do when they see children just ahead on the road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should be aware that children can be unpredictable, and you should be prepared to slow down and give extra clearance to them if necessary.

What should a driver do when overtaking a cyclist?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should never cut in front of cyclists when overtaking them. Give them plenty of space especially as they may change direction suddenly — for example, to avoid a pothole, or because they are blown off course by a strong gust of wind.

In slow-moving city traffic, a driver should occasionally check their blind spots for which road users in particular?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: In slow-moving city traffic, you should be aware of and check your blind spots before any manoeuvre. Cyclists can easily become 'hidden' in a blind spot, and in slow-moving traffic, they might be moving faster than you are.

What should a driver do if while driving at 80 km/h they see children on the road ahead?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You should be aware that children can be unpredictable, and you should slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary.

What should a driver do when driving at night on an unlit road?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: While driving at night and even with the best headlights, it can be very difficult to see all the hazards that you might come across — for example, pedestrians wearing dark clothing. At night you should drive at a speed that will enable you to stop safely within the distance you can see to be clear ahead.

What precautions should a driver take in relation to pedestrians when driving in slow-moving traffic?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: In slow-moving city traffic, you should be aware of and check your blind spots before any manoeuvre. Pedestrians can easily become 'hidden' in a blind spot and in slow-moving traffic, they might be moving faster than you are.

If the traffic lights change while pedestrians are still crossing at pelican crossings or traffic lights, what should a driver do?

Correct! Wrong!

Explantion: You must always yield to pedestrians already crossing at a pedestrian crossing or junction, and you must not hurry them off the crossing by aggressive actions. Vehicles do not have a greater right of way over other road users.
