    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Fog is indeed a dangerous type of extreme weather condition because it reduces visibility and impairs distance perception. This means that it becomes difficult for drivers and pedestrians to see clearly, leading to an increased risk of accidents. The reduced visibility also affects transportation systems, such as air travel, as it can disrupt schedules and cause delays. Therefore, it is true that fog is a hazardous weather condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The best defense when forced to drive in fog is to pull off the road and park safely until the fog dissipates or is burned off, if at all possible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The best defense when forced to drive in fog is to pull off the road and park safely until the fog dissipates or is burned off, if at all possible. This is because driving in fog can greatly reduce visibility and increase the risk of accidents. By pulling off the road and waiting for the fog to clear, it ensures the safety of both the driver and other road users.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

     If you must drive in fog you should do the following: ________________________________.     

    • A.

      Use high beam headlights only

    • B.

      Use low beam headlights only

    • C.

      Speed up

      They are less likely to drain the car's battery power.

    • C.

      They allow other drivers to see the motorist's vehicle.

    • D.

      A, b and c

    • E.

      A and c

    Correct Answer
    E. A and c
    Explanation
    Low beam headlights are used when driving in the fog because they help the driver see the immediate roadway and allow other drivers to see the motorist's vehicle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A defensive driver should always assume the depth or thickness of fog.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A defensive driver should not assume the depth or thickness of fog because it can vary greatly and change rapidly. Instead, they should be cautious and adapt their driving behavior accordingly, such as reducing their speed, increasing following distance, and using appropriate headlights and fog lights if necessary. Assuming the depth or thickness of fog can lead to complacency and increase the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Determining a correct and safe speed depends on the thickness of the fog and is left to the driver’s best judgment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because determining the appropriate speed in foggy conditions is subjective and depends on the driver's judgement. The thickness of the fog can vary, and it is up to the driver to assess the visibility and adjust their speed accordingly to ensure safety. There are no fixed rules or guidelines for driving in fog, so it is important for drivers to use their best judgement to determine a safe speed.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Avoid the use of high-beam headlights while driving in fog. The water particles that make up fog will reflect more light back at the driver than onto the roadway when high beams are used, and will further reduce visibility.

    Ice tends to form first on bridges and overpasses because cold air circulates above and below the structures causing the temperature to drop more rapidly than on normal roads.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Ice tends to form first on bridges and overpasses because cold air circulates above and below the structures causing the temperature to drop more rapidly than on normal roads. This is because bridges and overpasses are elevated structures, allowing cold air to circulate around them, whereas normal roads are closer to the ground and have more insulation from the surrounding air. As a result, bridges and overpasses cool down faster, causing any moisture in the air to freeze and form ice more quickly than on normal roads.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    Any moisture on the road surface of a bridge or overpass will freeze later and will be slushier than elsewhere on the road.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Moisture on the road surface of a bridge or overpass will not necessarily freeze later or be slushier than elsewhere on the road. This statement is false because the freezing and slushiness of the road surface depend on various factors such as temperature, humidity, and the condition of the road. While bridges and overpasses may freeze more quickly due to their elevated position, it is not always the case that they will be slushier than other areas of the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    During snowy and icy weather, extreme caution and a reduction in speed should be used while traveling over bridges and overpasses. 

    • A.
