      Cannot result in a traffic citation

    • C.

      Saves lives by causing others to slow down, too

    Correct Answer
    A. Can frustrate other drivers and make them angry
    Explanation
    Driving slowly in front of traffic in the far left (fast) lane on any freeway can frustrate other drivers and make them angry. This is because the far left lane is typically designated for faster-moving traffic, and driving slowly in this lane can impede the flow of traffic. Other drivers may become frustrated and angry because they are unable to pass the slower vehicle, which can lead to unsafe driving behaviors and potential road rage incidents.

    A. Imprisonment in a state prison for five years
    Explanation
    If you ignore the warning to stop and speed away while being chased by a police vehicle with its lights and sirens activated, and a person is seriously injured during the chase, you are subject to imprisonment in a state prison for five years. This is because your actions resulted in harm to another person and you showed a blatant disregard for the safety of others by fleeing from the police. The seriousness of the offense warrants a significant punishment to ensure public safety and deter others from engaging in similar behavior.

    If it starts to rain on a hot day, the road is the most slippery:

    • A.

      For the first few minutes

    • B.

      After it has been raining for a few hours

    • C.

      After it has stopped raining

    Correct Answer
    A. For the first few minutes
    Explanation
    When it starts to rain on a hot day, the road is the most slippery for the first few minutes. This is because the rainwater mixes with the oils and dust on the road surface, creating a thin layer of water that reduces the friction between the tires and the road. As a result, the road becomes more slippery, making it harder for vehicles to maintain traction and increasing the risk of accidents. However, as the rain continues and washes away the oils and dust, the road becomes less slippery. After it has been raining for a few hours or after it has stopped raining, the road is no longer as slippery as it was in the first few minutes.

    You are entering a freeway. You should check traffic by:

    • A.

      Looking over your shoulder

    • B.

      Using the inside and outside mirrors only

    • C.

      Checking all mirrors and turning your head

    Correct Answer
    C. Checking all mirrors and turning your head
    Explanation
    When entering a freeway, it is important to check traffic from all directions to ensure a safe merge. Checking all mirrors allows you to be aware of vehicles approaching from behind and on the sides. However, relying solely on mirrors may not provide a complete view of the surroundings. Turning your head to check blind spots over your shoulder helps to identify any vehicles that may not be visible in the mirrors. Therefore, checking all mirrors and turning your head is the most effective way to check traffic before entering a freeway.

      Increase the distance between your vehicle and the car ahead

    Correct Answer
    C. Increase the distance between your vehicle and the car ahead
    Explanation
    When the road is wet from heavy rain, the surface becomes slippery, which reduces the traction between the tires and the road. This means that it takes longer for your vehicle to come to a stop. By increasing the distance between your vehicle and the car ahead, you allow for more time and space to react and stop safely, reducing the risk of a collision. This is why it is important to increase the distance between your vehicle and the car ahead when the road is wet.

The weight of the child falls within the range that is appropriate for a child passenger restraint system.
