Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these is NOT a safe place to cross?

    • A.

      Zebra crossing

    • B.

      On a blind bend

    • C.

      Puffin crossing

    • D.

      Lollipop lady

    Correct Answer
    B. On a blind bend
    Explanation
    Crossing on a blind bend is not a safe place to cross. Blind bends limit visibility for both drivers and pedestrians, increasing the risk of accidents. Pedestrians may not be seen by approaching vehicles until it is too late, and drivers may not have enough time to react. It is important to choose a safe location to cross, such as a zebra crossing, puffin crossing, or with the assistance of a lollipop lady. These options provide designated areas for pedestrians and ensure better visibility for both pedestrians and drivers.

    Where should you stand before crossing the road?

    • A.

      On the road

    • B.

      Next to the traffic

    • C.

      On the pavement, near the kerb

    • D.

      Behind a bush

    Correct Answer
    C. On the pavement, near the kerb
    Explanation
    Standing on the pavement, near the kerb is the correct answer because it is the safest position for pedestrians before crossing the road. Standing on the pavement allows pedestrians to have a clear view of the traffic and assess when it is safe to cross. Being near the kerb ensures that pedestrians are closer to the edge of the road and can easily step onto the crossing when it is clear. Standing on the road, next to the traffic or behind a bush are not safe options as they can obstruct visibility and increase the risk of accidents.

    Where should you look first before crossing the road?

    • A.

      To the left hand side

    • B.

      To the right hand side

    Correct Answer
    B. To the right hand side
    Explanation
    Before crossing the road, it is important to look to the right hand side first. This is because in most countries, including the United States, traffic flows on the right side of the road. Looking to the right ensures that you can see any oncoming vehicles or potential hazards from that direction before proceeding to cross. It is also important to continue looking in both directions while crossing to ensure safety.

    What is step three of the Green Cross Code?

    • A.

      Look

    • B.

      Cross

    • C.

      Wait

    • D.

      Stop

    Correct Answer
    A. Look
    Explanation
    Step three of the Green Cross Code is to "Look". This means that before crossing the road, one should stop at the edge of the pavement and look both ways to check for any oncoming traffic. By doing so, pedestrians can ensure that it is safe to proceed and cross the road without putting themselves in danger. Looking is an essential step in practicing road safety and preventing accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If traffic is coming what should you do?

    • A.

      Put your hand out and stop it

    • B.

      Start crossing the road and the cars will stop

    • C.

      Stand in the middle of the road for it stop

    • D.

      Let it pass

    Correct Answer
    D. Let it pass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Let it pass." When traffic is coming, it is important to prioritize safety and wait for the traffic to pass before attempting to cross the road. Putting your hand out and stopping the traffic, starting to cross the road and expecting the cars to stop, or standing in the middle of the road for it to stop are all unsafe actions that can lead to accidents. Waiting for the traffic to pass ensures that you can cross the road safely without any potential risks.

  • 6. 

    What else should you do if you can’t see traffic?

    • A.

      Sing

    • B.

      Dance

    • C.

      Listen

    • D.

      Think

    Correct Answer
    C. Listen
    Explanation
    If you can't see traffic, the best thing to do is to listen. By listening carefully, you can hear the sounds of approaching vehicles or other indications of traffic. This is especially important for pedestrians or drivers who are visually impaired. Listening can help you stay aware of your surroundings and make safe decisions while navigating the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    At which crossing should you wait for the green man to show? 

    • A.

      Puffin

    • B.

      Zebra

    • C.

      Lollipop lady

    • D.

      Footbridges

    Correct Answer
    A. Puffin
    Explanation
    A puffin crossing is a type of pedestrian crossing that uses sensors to detect when pedestrians are still crossing the road. It has a set of traffic lights that display a green man signal when it is safe for pedestrians to cross. Therefore, at a puffin crossing, you should wait for the green man to show before crossing the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    In which direction should you cross the road in?

    • A.

      Diagonally

    • B.

      Backwards

    • C.

      Straight

    Correct Answer
    C. Straight
    Explanation
    When crossing the road, it is recommended to go straight across. This means walking in a perpendicular direction to the road, from one side to the other. This is the safest way to cross because it allows you to maintain a clear line of sight with oncoming traffic and ensures that drivers can easily see you. Crossing diagonally or backwards can be dangerous as it increases the risk of not being seen by drivers or misjudging the speed and distance of approaching vehicles.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Who should you look out for as you may not hear them?

    • A.

      Adults

    • B.

      Cyclists

    • C.

      Babies

    Correct Answer
    B. Cyclists
    Explanation
    Cyclists should be looked out for as they may not be easily heard due to the lack of engine noise. Unlike adults or babies, who can typically be heard when they are nearby, cyclists may approach silently, especially if they are riding electric bikes or if there is background noise. Therefore, it is important to be vigilant and keep an eye out for cyclists to ensure their safety and prevent accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What should you do if there is no pavement for you to stand on?

    • A.

      Keep back from the edge of the road

    • B.

      Stand as close to the traffic as possible

    • C.

      Cross as fast as you can

    • D.

      Go back home

    Correct Answer
    A. Keep back from the edge of the road
    Explanation
    If there is no pavement for you to stand on, the best course of action is to keep back from the edge of the road. This is important for your safety as standing too close to the traffic can put you at risk of being hit by a vehicle. By keeping back from the edge of the road, you can minimize the danger and ensure that you are not obstructing the flow of traffic. It is not advisable to cross the road quickly or go back home unless it is necessary.
