This is because flying through intersections indicates a lack of caution and disregard for traffic rules, which can be dangerous and lead to accidents. The examiner wants to observe your ability to follow traffic laws, including stopping at intersections and proceeding safely. Therefore, it is crucial to approach intersections with caution, obey traffic signals, and yield to other vehicles when necessary.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. $20,000/$40,000 for bodily injury and $5,000 for property damage
    Explanation
    If your test vehicle is registered out of state, you must show the examiner proof of insurance coverage equal to Massachusetts minimum limits, which are $20,000/$40,000 for bodily injury and $5,000 for property damage. This means that if you are involved in an accident, your insurance must cover at least $20,000 per person for bodily injury, up to a maximum of $40,000 per accident, and $5,000 for property damage. This ensures that you have sufficient coverage to compensate for any injuries or damages that may occur.
