  • 19. 

    When approaching children, drivers must try to anticipate their behavior.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Drivers must try to anticipate children's behavior because children can be unpredictable and may not always follow traffic rules or understand the dangers of the road. By anticipating their behavior, drivers can be prepared to react quickly and safely to any unexpected actions that children may take, such as darting into the street or running out from between parked cars. This is especially important in areas where children are likely to be present, such as near schools, parks, or residential neighborhoods. Overall, anticipating children's behavior helps drivers to be more cautious and alert, reducing the risk of accidents involving children.

    The proper technique for driving around a curve is to slow down before the curve and accelerate toward the end of the curve.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The proper technique for driving around a curve is to slow down before the curve and accelerate toward the end of the curve. This is because slowing down before the curve allows the driver to maintain control and reduce the risk of skidding or losing traction. Accelerating toward the end of the curve helps to maintain stability and control as the vehicle straightens out after the curve. By following this technique, the driver can navigate the curve safely and efficiently.

    If the vehicle starts skidding while breaking, the driver should do which of the following?

    • A.

      Downshift and take foot off gas pedal.

    • B.

      Turn the steering wheel in the direction that the rear of the vehicle is skidding and pump the breaks lightly

    • C.

      Immediately apply pressure to brakes.

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn the steering wheel in the direction that the rear of the vehicle is skidding and pump the breaks lightly
    Explanation
    When a vehicle starts skidding while braking, it indicates a loss of traction between the tires and the road surface. To regain control, the driver should turn the steering wheel in the direction that the rear of the vehicle is skidding. This helps to align the tires with the direction of the skid and allows the driver to regain control of the vehicle. Additionally, the driver should pump the brakes lightly instead of immediately applying pressure. This helps to prevent the wheels from locking up and allows the driver to maintain some control over the braking process.

  • 26. 

    It is important when passing that drivers make sure enough clearance is made for the traffic from the rear.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When passing another vehicle, it is crucial for drivers to ensure there is enough space for the traffic approaching from behind. This is important for the safety of all drivers involved, as well as to prevent any potential accidents or collisions. By making sure there is sufficient clearance, drivers can minimize the risk of causing a dangerous situation for themselves and others on the road. Therefore, the statement "It is important when passing that drivers make sure enough clearance is made for the traffic from the rear" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    How many times greater is the force of collision if the driving speed is doubled?

    • A.

      Twice as great.

    • B.

      Three times as great.

    • C.

      Four times as great

    Correct Answer
    C. Four times as great
    Explanation
    When the driving speed is doubled, the force of collision increases by a factor of four. This can be explained by the principle of kinetic energy, which states that the kinetic energy of an object is proportional to the square of its velocity. Since velocity is directly related to speed, doubling the speed results in a fourfold increase in kinetic energy. As force is directly related to kinetic energy, the force of collision is also four times greater.

    Explanation
    According to traffic laws, drivers are not allowed to exceed the posted speed limit at any time, including when passing another vehicle. Speed limits are set for the safety of all drivers on the road, and exceeding them can increase the risk of accidents and endanger other drivers. Therefore, the statement that drivers may exceed the posted speed limit while passing another vehicle is false.

    Drivers may not increase their speed while being passed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When a driver is being passed by another vehicle, they are expected to maintain their current speed and not increase it. This is important for the safety of both drivers and other vehicles on the road. Increasing speed while being passed can lead to dangerous situations, such as collisions or forcing the passing vehicle to take evasive actions. Therefore, it is true that drivers should not increase their speed while being passed.

    Drivers my pass a streetcar on the left when the road is a one-way street.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Drivers may pass a streetcar on the left when the road is a one-way street because in this situation, there is no oncoming traffic from the opposite direction. Since the road is one-way, all vehicles are moving in the same direction, allowing drivers to safely pass the streetcar on the left side. This is a common practice and is permitted as long as it is done safely and in accordance with traffic laws.

    Two-wheeled vehicles are particularly dangerous to pass and should be passed only with side clearance is of at least 1.5 meters.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Two-wheeled vehicles, such as bicycles or motorcycles, can be unstable and have less protection compared to four-wheeled vehicles. Therefore, passing them requires extra caution. The statement suggests that passing two-wheeled vehicles should only be done with a minimum side clearance of 1.5 meters. This is important to ensure the safety of both the two-wheeled vehicle and the passing vehicle, as it allows enough space for any sudden movements or obstacles. Hence, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

    When is passing another vehicle prohibited.

    • A.

      When the traffic situation is unclear

    • B.

      When there is a broken center line

    • C.

      When passing can be accomplished without exceeding the speed limit.

    Correct Answer
    A. When the traffic situation is unclear
    Explanation
    Passing another vehicle is prohibited when the traffic situation is unclear because in such situations, it may be difficult to determine if it is safe to pass. Unclear traffic situations can include poor visibility due to weather conditions, obstructions on the road, or heavy traffic congestion. In these circumstances, it is important to prioritize safety and refrain from passing until the traffic situation becomes clear and it is safe to do so.

    At unmarked intersections, vehicles coming from the right have the right-of-way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At unmarked intersections, the general rule is that vehicles coming from the right have the right-of-way. This means that if two vehicles arrive at the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right should proceed first. This rule helps to establish order and prevent confusion at intersections where there are no traffic signals or signs indicating right-of-way. It is important for drivers to be aware of this rule and exercise caution when approaching unmarked intersections.

    In the city where no priority signs are posted, the driver on the widest street has the right-of-way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In the city where no priority signs are posted, the driver on the widest street does not necessarily have the right-of-way. Right-of-way is determined by traffic laws and regulations, not by the width of the street. Without any specific signs or rules indicating otherwise, all drivers should yield to each other and proceed with caution to ensure safety on the roads. Therefore, the statement is false.

    The "right-before-left" rule applies at unmarked intersections.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The "right-before-left" rule is a common traffic rule that applies at unmarked intersections. According to this rule, when two vehicles approach an unmarked intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right of way and can proceed first, while the vehicle on the left must yield. This rule helps to establish a clear order of priority and prevent accidents at intersections where there are no traffic signs or signals indicating right of way. Therefore, the statement "The 'right-before-left' rule applies at unmarked intersections" is true.

    A driver wants to leave a private driveway and turn right onto a public road. At the same time, a cyclist is approaching from the left. Who has to wait?

    • A.

      The cyclist

    • B.

      The driver of the motor vehicle

    Correct Answer
    B. The driver of the motor vehicle
    Explanation
    The driver of the motor vehicle has to wait because they are entering a public road from a private driveway. According to traffic rules, vehicles entering a public road must yield to oncoming traffic. In this case, the cyclist is approaching from the left, and the driver must wait for the cyclist to pass before turning onto the road.

    A driver who disregards the safety of others is excused legally from responsibility when he or she has the right-of-way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A driver who disregards the safety of others cannot be legally excused from responsibility even if they have the right-of-way. The right-of-way is a privilege granted to a driver in specific situations, but it does not absolve them from their duty to drive safely and responsibly. Regardless of who has the right-of-way, all drivers are expected to exercise caution and avoid endangering others on the road. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • C.

      3-1-2

    Correct Answer
    B. 2-1-3
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2-1-3 because vehicle 2 has the right of way and can proceed first. After vehicle 2, vehicle 1 can proceed as it is the next vehicle in line. Finally, vehicle 3 can proceed after vehicle 1 has cleared the way.
