Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    It will take the average driver driving at 50 mph about _____ feet to come to a stop on a dry surface.

    • A.

      250

    • B.

      75

    • C.

      50

    Correct Answer
    A. 250
    Explanation
    On a dry surface, it takes the average driver driving at 50 mph about 250 feet to come to a stop. This is because the stopping distance is influenced by various factors such as reaction time, braking ability, and the condition of the road. The faster the speed, the longer the distance required to stop. Therefore, at higher speeds, it takes more time and distance to bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

    Your driving performance is constantly being challenged on the roadway. Those who have the greatest accident potential are bicyclists and pedestrians.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because bicyclists and pedestrians are more vulnerable on the roadway compared to other vehicles. They have less protection and are more exposed to potential accidents. Therefore, drivers need to be extra cautious and aware of their surroundings to ensure the safety of these road users.

  • 3. 

    What is part of your communications system when driving? 

    • A.

      Horn

    • B.

      Directional signals

    • C.

      Eye contact

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options mentioned (horn, directional signals, and eye contact) are indeed part of the communication system when driving. The horn is used to alert other drivers or pedestrians in case of any danger or to communicate a message. Directional signals are used to indicate the intended direction of the vehicle, allowing other drivers to anticipate the movement. Eye contact plays a crucial role in non-verbal communication while driving, as it can help establish communication and understanding between drivers. Therefore, all of the options mentioned are part of the communication system when driving.

    A seat belt violation is a "stand alone" violation; that is, a vehicle operator does not have to be stopped for another violation in order to receive a citation for "failure to use seat belts".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A seat belt violation is considered a "stand alone" violation, meaning that a vehicle operator can be cited for failing to use seat belts without needing to be stopped for any other violation. This implies that law enforcement officers can issue a citation specifically for not wearing seat belts, even if the driver is not committing any other offense at the time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true. It states that any person who is transporting a child under the age of 6 or a child weighing 40 pounds or less, regardless of age, must use a safety seat for transportation. This regulation is in place to ensure the safety and protection of young children while traveling in a vehicle.

    Statistics show that 75% of accidents involving death or injury occur within ____ miles of the victim's home.

    • A.

      25 miles

    • B.

      30 miles

    • C.

      5 miles

    Correct Answer
    A. 25 miles
    Explanation
    Statistics show that a significant majority (75%) of accidents resulting in death or injury happen within a relatively short distance (25 miles) from the victim's home. This suggests that a large proportion of accidents occur in close proximity to where people live, possibly due to factors such as familiarity with the area, increased traffic density, or a higher likelihood of encountering other vehicles or pedestrians in residential neighborhoods.

    At night, a bicycle must be equipped with a white light on the front, that is visible for a distance of:

    • A.

      100 feet

    • B.

      500 feet

    • C.

      300 feet

    Correct Answer
    B. 500 feet
    Explanation
    A bicycle must be equipped with a white light on the front that is visible for a distance of 500 feet at night. This is important for the safety of the cyclist and other road users, as it allows them to see the bicycle from a significant distance and take necessary precautions. Having a visible light on the front of the bicycle ensures that it is easily noticeable in low-light conditions, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions.

    The occupants of a vehicle not wearing a seat belt, traveling at a speed of 60 m.p.h. and striking a fixed object will:

    • A.

      Stop when the vehicle stops

    • B.

      Be protected from any injuries

    • C.

      Continue to travel at 60 m.p.h. until something stops them

    Correct Answer
    C. Continue to travel at 60 m.p.h. until something stops them
    Explanation
    When a vehicle strikes a fixed object at a speed of 60 m.p.h., the occupants who are not wearing seat belts will continue to move forward at the same speed until something stops them. This is due to the concept of inertia, which states that an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an external force. Therefore, the occupants will continue to travel at 60 m.p.h. until they are stopped by the impact of the collision or any other external force.

    A person riding a bicycle in the roadway must:

    • A.

      Ride on the left side of the roadway, facing traffic

    • B.

      Ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practical

    • C.

      Both of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practical
    Explanation
    A person riding a bicycle in the roadway must ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practical. This is because it allows for better visibility and predictability for both the cyclist and other road users. Riding on the left side of the roadway, facing traffic, would increase the risk of accidents as it goes against the flow of traffic and makes it difficult for drivers to anticipate the cyclist's movements. Therefore, the correct option is to ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practical.

    • B.

      50 mph

    Correct Answer
    B. 50 mph
    Explanation
    Bicycles are not allowed on roadways with posted maximum speed limits higher than 50 mph. This means that if a road has a speed limit of 50 mph or higher, bicycles are not permitted to be ridden on that road.
