      BE CLOSED WHEN OPERATING THE BUS

    • B.

      ALWAYS HAVE A RED DOOR LIGHT ON

    • C.

      BE FREE TO OPEN FOR FRESH AIR

    Correct Answer
    A. BE CLOSED WHEN OPERATING THE BUS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "BE CLOSED WHEN OPERATING THE BUS". This is because the emergency exit door should be closed when the bus is in operation to ensure the safety of the passengers. Keeping the door closed helps to prevent any unauthorized access, reduce the risk of accidents, and maintain the structural integrity of the bus. It is important to follow this guideline to comply with safety regulations and ensure the well-being of everyone on board.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    TO STOP FOR RAILROAD TRACKS, A BUS DRIVER MUST STOP ________FEET BEFORE THE NEAREST TRACK?

    • A.

      10 TO 25 FEET

    • B.

      15 TO 50 FEET

    • C.

      20 TO 75 FEET

    Correct Answer
    B. 15 TO 50 FEET
    Explanation
    A bus driver must stop 15 to 50 feet before the nearest track to ensure the safety of passengers and avoid any potential collisions with trains. This distance allows the bus driver enough time to assess the situation, check for approaching trains, and come to a complete stop before reaching the railroad tracks. Stopping at this distance also allows for a buffer zone in case of any unexpected circumstances or emergencies that may require additional stopping time.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    WHEN YOU INSPECT YOUR BUS, MAKE SURE?

    • A.

      EMERGENCY EXIT HANDLES HAVE BEEN REMOVED

      EVERY OTHER HANDHOLD AND RAILING IS SECURE

    • C.

      RIDER SIGNALING DEVICES ARE WORKING

    Correct Answer
    C. RIDER SIGNALING DEVICES ARE WORKING
    Explanation
    When inspecting a bus, it is important to ensure that rider signaling devices are working. This is crucial for the safety and convenience of the passengers. Rider signaling devices, such as bells or buttons, allow passengers to communicate with the driver and indicate their desired stops or any emergencies. If these devices are not working, it can lead to miscommunication or delays in response to passenger needs. Therefore, it is essential to check and ensure that rider signaling devices are in proper working condition during a bus inspection.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    IF A RIDER WANTS TO BRING A CAR BATTERY OR A CAN OF GASOLINE ABOARD YOUR BUS, YOU SHOULD?

    • A.

      NOT ALLOW THE RIDER TO DO IT

    • B.

      COLLECT AN EXTRA FARE FOR THIS TYPE OF CARGO

    • C.

      PUT THE BATTERY OR GASOLINE IN THE CARGO COMPARTMENT

    Correct Answer
    A. NOT ALLOW THE RIDER TO DO IT
    Explanation
    The correct answer is NOT ALLOW THE RIDER TO DO IT. This is because bringing a car battery or a can of gasoline aboard a bus can pose a safety risk. Car batteries and gasoline are flammable materials, and having them on the bus can increase the chances of a fire or explosion. Therefore, it is important to not allow riders to bring such items on board to ensure the safety of all passengers.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    IF THERE IS NO TRAFFIC LIGHT OR ATTENDANT, STOP FOR A DRAWBRIDGE ABOUT ____________FEET FROM THE DRAWBRING?

    • A.

      25

    • B.

      50

    • C.

      100

    Correct Answer
    B. 50
    Explanation
    When approaching a drawbridge without a traffic light or attendant, it is recommended to stop about 50 feet from the drawbridge. This distance allows for enough space to safely stop and assess the situation before proceeding. Stopping too close to the drawbridge may not provide enough time to react if the bridge starts to open or close. Additionally, stopping too far away may obstruct the flow of traffic behind. Therefore, stopping about 50 feet from the drawbridge is the appropriate distance to ensure safety and traffic efficiency.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

      IN FRONT OF ANY OPEN LUGGAGE SPACE

    • C.

      IN FRONT OF THE STANDEE LINE

    Correct Answer
    C. IN FRONT OF THE STANDEE LINE
    Explanation
    Riders should not stand in front of the standee line because it is important to maintain clear pathways and ensure the safety of all passengers. Standing in front of the standee line can obstruct the movement of other passengers and create a potential hazard during emergencies. It is necessary to follow this rule to allow for efficient boarding and exiting of the vehicle, as well as to comply with safety regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    YOU ARE DRIVING A 40 FOOT BUS AT 50 MPH. THE ROAD IS DRY AND VISIBILITY IS GOOD. YOU SHOULD KEEP ______ SECONDS OF SPACE IN FRONT OF YOUR BUS TO BE SAFE?

    • A.

      7

    • B.

      6

    • C.

      5

    Correct Answer
    C. 5
    Explanation
    To ensure safety while driving a 40-foot bus at 50 mph on a dry road with good visibility, it is recommended to maintain at least 5 seconds of space in front of the bus. This allows enough time to react and stop the vehicle in case of any sudden changes or emergencies on the road. Keeping a safe distance helps prevent collisions and provides a buffer for potential hazards.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    YOU ARE DRIVING A 40 FOOT BUS AT 30 MPH. THE ROAD IS DRY AND VISIBILITY IS GOOD. YOU SHOULD KEEP A SAFETY SPACE IN FRONT OF YOUR BUS THAT IS AT LEAST __________ SECONDS?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      6

    • C.

      8

    Correct Answer
    A. 4
    Explanation
    When driving a large vehicle like a 40-foot bus, it is important to maintain a proper safety space in front of the vehicle. This space allows the driver to have enough time to react and stop the vehicle in case of any sudden changes or emergencies. The correct answer of 4 seconds means that the driver should maintain a distance of at least 4 seconds from the vehicle in front of the bus. This gives the driver enough time to brake and avoid a collision if needed.

      ONLY IF YOUR BUS HOLDS MORE THAN 27 PEOPLE

    Correct Answer
    A. AT ALL TIMES
    Explanation
    Wearing your seat belt at all times is the best practice for ensuring your safety while driving. Seat belts are designed to protect you in the event of a collision or sudden stop, and wearing them consistently reduces the risk of serious injury or death. Regardless of the speed you are driving or the number of people on the bus, it is always recommended to wear your seat belt for your own safety.

    Correct Answer
    B. ANYWHERE EXCEPT THE FRONT WHEELS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ANYWHERE EXCEPT THE FRONT WHEELS". This means that buses may have recapped or regrooved tires on any or all of the wheels, except for the front wheels. Recapping or regrooving tires is a common practice to extend their lifespan and improve traction. However, it is not recommended for the front wheels as they are responsible for steering and require better grip and control.

These substances can cause harm if released or leaked during transportation, potentially causing respiratory problems, eye irritation, and other health issues. Therefore, it is important to prohibit the transportation of such dangerous materials on buses to ensure the safety of all passengers.

The fumes from the fuel can accumulate in the enclosed space, leading to a potentially hazardous situation. It is important to always fuel the bus in a well-ventilated area to ensure the safety of the passengers and the driver.

      MAINTAIN CONSTANT SPEED THROUGH CURVES, KEEPING THE BUS LEANING SLIGHTLY

    • C.

      SPEED UP BEFORE CURVES, THEN BRAKE ALL THE WAY THROUGH THEM

    Correct Answer
    A. SLOW TO SAFE SPEED BEFORE ENTERING THE CURVE, THEN ACCELERATE SLIGHTLY THROUGH THEM
    Explanation
    Slowing to a safe speed before entering a curve allows the driver to maintain better control over the vehicle. By reducing the speed, the driver can navigate the curve more smoothly and reduce the risk of losing control or skidding. Accelerating slightly through the curve helps to maintain stability and control, as it provides the necessary momentum to navigate the curve effectively. This approach allows for better control and reduces the risk of accidents or loss of control on the curve.
