One of the environmentally friendly ways for you to move from place to place is cycling. Most countries that are going green have embraced this and have cycling paths. The quiz below is on the basic theory test in preparation for the bicycle quiz that is coming up. Give it a try!

This is because the lane marking indicates a potential merging point with a cycle lane, and it is crucial to ensure the safety of all cyclists on the road. By slowing down and looking both ways, you can assess the situation and allow any other cyclists to pass before proceeding. This promotes a safe and cooperative cycling environment.

This is because when making a right turn, it is important to position your vehicle in the lane closest to the right-hand side of the road.

• A.

Bell

Reflectors

Cyclecomputer

• E.

Mobile Telephone

B. High Visibility Jacket
C. Reflectors
Explanation
When riding at night, it is not only legally required to have front and rear lights, but it is also recommended to wear a high visibility jacket and have reflectors on your bike. A high visibility jacket helps increase your visibility to other road users, making it easier for them to see you in the dark. Reflectors on your bike also enhance visibility by reflecting light from car headlights or streetlights. These additional safety measures help to reduce the risk of accidents and ensure that you are easily seen by others while riding at night.

### Wearing a helmet can prevent?

• A.

• B.

• C.

Wearing a helmet can prevent serious head injuries because it provides protection and absorbs the impact of any potential blows or accidents. Helmets are designed to cushion the head and reduce the risk of skull fractures, brain damage, and other severe injuries that can occur during activities such as cycling, motorcycling, or participating in contact sports. Wearing a helmet acts as a barrier between the head and external forces, significantly reducing the likelihood of serious head injuries.
