    A driver who approaches an intersection at an unlawful speed will:

    • A.

      Need additional time to stop

    • B.

      Lose right-of-way privilages

    • C.

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Lose right-of-way privilages
    Explanation
    When a driver approaches an intersection at an unlawful speed, they are not only violating traffic laws but also putting themselves and others at risk. By exceeding the speed limit, the driver will have less control over their vehicle and will require additional time to stop. This means that they may not be able to react in time to avoid a collision if necessary. Additionally, losing right-of-way privileges is a consequence of breaking traffic laws, as it is a way to enforce safety and order on the roads. Therefore, the correct answer is that a driver who approaches an intersection at an unlawful speed will lose right-of-way privileges.

    • A.

      30 feet

    • B.

      50 feet

    • C.

By signaling early, you are promoting safe and efficient traffic flow.

    Improper turns cause many traffic crashes. Move safely into the correct lane well ahead of the place where you will make the actual turn.

    feet before the turn. Signals let pedestrians and drivers know what
    you plan to do.

    the brake. If your vehicle is struck from the rear, you will be less
    likely to be pushed into oncoming traffic.
    • Continue signalling until you begin your turn.
    • Do not make sudden turns from the wrong lane of traffic.
