• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

C. 6points
Explanation
The correct answer is 6 points because leaving the scene of an accident resulting in property damage of more than \$50 is considered a serious offense. This action shows a lack of responsibility and concern for the well-being of others involved in the accident. Therefore, a higher point penalty is assigned to deter individuals from committing this offense in the future.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### Point System:unlawful speed resulting in a crash

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

C. 6points
Explanation
The given answer of 6 points suggests that unlawful speed resulting in a crash is a serious offense and carries a higher penalty. This indicates that the act of driving at an excessive speed and causing a crash is considered a significant violation of traffic laws, warranting a higher point deduction. It emphasizes the severity of the consequences and the need for stricter punishment to deter such behavior on the roads.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Point System:Reckless Driving

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

B. 4points
Explanation
The correct answer is 4 points. This suggests that the point system for reckless driving assigns 4 points as a penalty. The specific criteria or actions that result in these points are not provided in the question, but it can be inferred that they are related to reckless driving offenses.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Point System:An moving violation resulting in an accident

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

B. 4points
Explanation
An moving violation resulting in an accident is assigned 4 points. This means that if a driver commits a moving violation and it leads to an accident, they will receive 4 points on their driving record. The higher the points, the more severe the violation is considered. This suggests that a moving violation resulting in an accident is a serious offense and carries significant consequences for the driver.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Point System:passing a stopped school bus

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

B. 4points
Explanation
Passing a stopped school bus is a serious traffic violation that puts the safety of children at risk. Therefore, it is appropriate to assign a higher point value to this offense in order to discourage drivers from engaging in such dangerous behavior. The answer of 4 points reflects the severity of the offense and serves as a deterrent to prevent drivers from illegally passing a stopped school bus.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Point System:driving during restricted hours

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

A. 3points
Explanation
The given answer, "3 points," suggests that driving during restricted hours will result in the accumulation of 3 points on one's driving record. This implies that there is a penalty or consequence associated with this offense, and the severity of the penalty is relatively low compared to the other options (4 points and 6 points). Therefore, driving during restricted hours may be considered a less serious violation in terms of its impact on one's driving record.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Point System:unlawful speed: 16 mph or more over lawful speed

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

B. 4points
Explanation
The correct answer is 4 points. This suggests that if someone is caught driving at an unlawful speed of 16 mph or more over the lawful speed limit, they will receive 4 points on their driving record. This implies that the offense is considered more severe than receiving 3 points but less severe than receiving 6 points.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Point System:violation of a traffic control signal/sign/device

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

B. 4points
Explanation
The correct answer is 4 points. This suggests that violating a traffic control signal/sign/device results in a penalty of 4 points.

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

• A.

3points

• B.

Explanation
The given answer of 3 points is correct because it states that if someone is driving at an unlawful speed that is 15 mph or less over the lawful speed limit, they will receive 3 points on their driving record. This implies that there is a point system in place for traffic violations, and the severity of the violation determines the number of points assigned.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Point System:all other moving violations

• A.

3points

• B.

4points

• C.

6points

A. 3points
Explanation
The given answer of "3 points" is likely the correct answer because it is stated in the question that "all other moving violations" have a point system, and the point values mentioned are 3, 4, and 6. Since the question does not specify a particular violation, it can be inferred that the general point value for "all other moving violations" is 3 points.

Rate this question:

Explanation
The length of suspension is determined by the number of points accumulated within a specific time period. In this case, the maximum allowed points within an 18-month period is 18. The correct answer of 3 months suggests that accumulating 18 points would result in a suspension for that duration.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### Length of Suspension:24 points within in a 36 months period

### It is better to swerve right instead of toward oncoming traffic to prevent a crash

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Swerving right instead of toward oncoming traffic is a safer option to prevent a crash. By swerving right, the driver avoids colliding head-on with the oncoming traffic, reducing the risk of a severe collision. This maneuver allows the driver to create more distance between their vehicle and the oncoming vehicle, giving them more time to react and potentially avoid a crash altogether. Swerving right also minimizes the chances of causing a chain reaction crash involving multiple vehicles. Therefore, it is indeed better to swerve right to prevent a crash.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### Hitting a tree, post or a solid object is better than hitting a row of bushes.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Hitting a tree, post, or a solid object is not better than hitting a row of bushes. This is because hitting a solid object can cause more severe damage to both the vehicle and the occupants. On the other hand, hitting a row of bushes may act as a cushion, absorbing some of the impact and reducing the severity of the collision. Therefore, the statement is false.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Hitting a vehicle going in the same direction as you are is better than hitting a vehicle head-on.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Hitting a vehicle going in the same direction as you are is better than hitting a vehicle head-on because the impact force is distributed over a larger area, reducing the likelihood of severe injuries or fatalities. In a head-on collision, the force of impact is concentrated on a smaller area, resulting in a higher risk of serious injury or death for both drivers involved. Therefore, it is generally safer to collide with a vehicle going in the same direction as you are rather than head-on.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### It is better to skid off when avoiding a crash than driving off the road.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Skidding off when avoiding a crash is not better than driving off the road. Skidding off can lead to loss of control and potential collisions with other objects or vehicles, whereas driving off the road may provide a safer option to avoid a crash.

Rate this question:

• 22.

### It is better to  hit something that is not moving instead of a vehicle moving toward you.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
It is safer to hit something that is not moving rather than a vehicle moving toward you because hitting a stationary object will result in less impact force compared to colliding with a moving vehicle. When a vehicle is in motion, it has kinetic energy which increases the force of impact during a collision. Hitting a stationary object allows for a slower deceleration and reduces the chances of severe injuries or fatalities.

• A.

To the curb

• B.

When parking uphill, it is recommended to turn your wheels away from the curb. This is done to prevent the vehicle from rolling downhill in case the parking brake fails.
