Rate this question:

• 2.

What is the #1 cause of road fatalities?

• A.

Speeding

• B.

Not wearing a seat belt

• C.

Using a cellphone

• D.

GPS

A. Speeding
Explanation
Speeding is the number one cause of road fatalities because it increases the risk of accidents and reduces the driver's ability to react to unexpected situations. When a vehicle is traveling at high speeds, it takes longer to stop, and the force of impact in a collision is much greater. Speeding also reduces the driver's control over the vehicle, making it harder to navigate curves or avoid obstacles. Therefore, speeding significantly increases the likelihood of accidents and the severity of injuries, making it the leading cause of road fatalities.

For every 10 MPH a driver goes above 50 MPH, the risk of death doubles.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement suggests that as the driver's speed increases, the risk of death also increases. Specifically, for every 10 miles per hour (MPH) the driver goes above 50 MPH, the risk of death doubles. This implies that higher speeds significantly increase the likelihood of fatal accidents. Therefore, the answer is true.

Rate this question:

• 5.

Texting and driving is actually more dangerous than drinking and driving.

• A.

False

• B.

True

B. True
Explanation
Texting and driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving because it involves cognitive, visual, and manual distractions simultaneously. When texting, the driver's attention is diverted from the road, leading to slower reaction times, impaired judgment, and an increased risk of accidents. In contrast, drinking and driving impairs coordination and reaction times, but the driver's attention is still primarily focused on the road. Therefore, the statement that texting and driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving is true.

Rate this question:

• 6.

What happens to your "field of view" when you drive, if you use a cellphone?

• A.

It decreases

• B.

It stays the same

• C.

It increases

A. It decreases
Explanation
Using a cellphone while driving can cause a decrease in your field of view. When you are distracted by the phone, your attention is divided, and you may not be able to fully focus on the road ahead. This can result in tunnel vision, where your peripheral vision is reduced, causing a decrease in your overall field of view. This can be dangerous as it limits your ability to see potential hazards or obstacles on the road, increasing the risk of accidents.

Rate this question:

• 7.

Over 30% of accidents involve backing.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement suggests that more than 30% of accidents occur while backing up. This implies that a significant number of accidents happen when vehicles are reversing, which could be due to factors such as limited visibility, driver error, or lack of proper precautions. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that the given statement is accurate.
