### What is the stopping distance on a dry road at 50 m.p.h.?

• A.

• B.

20 Ft per 10 Mph

• C.

3 Secounds

• D.

243 Ft.

• E.

12 Secounds

D. 243 Ft.
Explanation
The stopping distance on a dry road at 50 mph is 243 ft. This is because the question is asking for the stopping distance, which is the distance it takes for a vehicle to come to a complete stop from a certain speed. The given answer of 243 ft is the correct answer because it is the only option that represents a distance measurement and is consistent with the context of the question. The other options do not provide a distance measurement and are therefore incorrect.

100 Ft.

• C.

6 Inches or less

6 Inches

• E.

7 Inches or less

C. 6 Inches or less
Explanation
The proper distance you may park from the curb is 6 inches or less. This is because parking too far from the curb can obstruct traffic and create safety hazards. By parking close to the curb, it allows for better traffic flow and ensures that your vehicle is not protruding into the road. Additionally, parking too far from the curb can make it difficult for other vehicles to park in the available space. Therefore, it is important to park as close to the curb as possible to maintain proper traffic flow and safety.

A. Suspension of driver's license and registration and fines
Explanation
Driving without insurance is illegal in most jurisdictions. The penalties for this offense typically include the suspension of the driver's license and registration, as well as fines. These penalties are imposed to ensure that all drivers have the necessary insurance coverage to protect themselves and others in the event of an accident. By suspending the license and registration, it serves as a deterrent to discourage individuals from driving without insurance. Additionally, the fines act as a financial consequence for breaking the law.

• D.

Any Police Department

• E.

B. A Division of motor Vehicles office
Explanation
Serious accidents causing death, injury, or significant property damage must be reported within 5 days to a Division of Motor Vehicles office. This is because the Division of Motor Vehicles is responsible for keeping records of all accidents and ensuring that the necessary legal and administrative actions are taken. Reporting the accident to the local Police Department or the Police Department of where the accident took place may also be required, but the primary authority to be notified is the Division of Motor Vehicles. Insurance companies may also need to be informed, but they are not the primary authority for reporting accidents.

Moving violations are the only factor that can result in points being issued. Driving without an insurance card and/or valid license, driving without an insurance card, having too many tickets, and causing an accident may all be infractions, but they do not necessarily result in points being issued. Only moving violations, such as speeding, running a red light, or reckless driving, typically result in points being added to a driver's record.

It is important to note that this is a proposed notice, and the final decision regarding the suspension will depend on the specific regulations and laws of the jurisdiction.

This can have a positive impact on their insurance rates and overall driving record.

Explanation
Both the student and the accompanying instructor or licensed driver are responsible if a student commits a traffic offense.

Therefore, both parties share the responsibility for the student's actions.

• E.

D. Slow down, and stop before entering the intersection, if possible
Explanation
When approaching a steady yellow or amber signal, the appropriate action is to slow down and stop before entering the intersection, if possible. This is because a steady yellow or amber signal indicates that the signal is about to turn red, and it is not safe to continue through the intersection. Increasing speed would be dangerous, and pressing the brake every time the light blinks is not a valid response. The statement about the light only being for construction vehicles is incorrect and unrelated to the question.

It is important to maintain visual awareness and not get distracted by any one thing for too long while driving.

When making a left turn, it is important to turn into the lane nearest the center in the direction you are heading. This ensures that you are aligning yourself with the flow of traffic and allows other vehicles to pass safely on your right. It also helps to prevent any confusion or potential accidents that may occur if you were to turn into a different lane. Therefore, it is the proper and safest lane to turn into when making a left turn.

Explanation
In a heavy rainstorm or snowstorm, visibility is significantly reduced, making it difficult to see the road and any potential hazards ahead.

The correct answer is 25 because the speed limit in a residential area is typically set at a lower speed to ensure the safety of residents and pedestrians.

It is important to drive at a slower speed in residential areas to prevent injuries and property damage.

This is important because intersections are high-risk areas where traffic from different directions can converge. Slowing down allows the driver to have better control of the vehicle and be more aware of their surroundings. Being prepared to stop ensures that the driver can react in a timely manner if they need to yield the right of way or if the traffic light changes. Looking both ways before crossing the intersection is also important, but the primary focus should be on slowing down and being prepared to stop.
