    You have been drinking heavily. Which of the following will help you sober up sooner so you can drive?

    • A.

      Drinking water or eating

    • B.

      Waiting to sober up

    • C.

      Vigorous exercise

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Waiting to sober up
    Explanation
    Waiting to sober up is the correct answer because the body needs time to metabolize alcohol and eliminate it from the system. Drinking water or eating may help to some extent by diluting the alcohol in the stomach or slowing down its absorption, but it will not speed up the process of sobering up. Vigorous exercise may actually worsen the effects of alcohol by increasing blood flow and causing alcohol to be absorbed more quickly. Therefore, the best option is to wait until the body naturally processes and eliminates the alcohol.

    In a situation where traffic has stopped in a tunnel, it is important to maintain a safe distance from the car in front to ensure safety and prevent accidents. Stopping no closer than 5 meters allows for enough space to react in case of sudden movements or emergencies. This distance provides a buffer zone that allows for better visibility and maneuverability, reducing the risk of collisions and ensuring the safety of everyone involved.

    Correct Answer
    B. Brake firmly, but no so firmly as to cause a skid
    Explanation
    When driving a vehicle without ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), it is important to brake firmly during an emergency. However, it is crucial to avoid braking so firmly that it causes a skid. This is because skidding can lead to a loss of control over the vehicle and increase the risk of an accident. By braking firmly but not excessively, the driver can slow down the vehicle effectively while maintaining stability and control.

    Correct Answer
    D. When visibility is severely reduced by fog, smoke or mist
    Explanation
    You may drive with your fog lights on when visibility is severely reduced by fog, smoke, or mist. This is because fog lights are specifically designed to provide better visibility in such conditions. Using them can help other drivers see your vehicle more clearly and can also improve your own visibility on the road. However, it is important to note that fog lights should only be used when necessary and should be turned off when visibility improves to avoid dazzling other drivers.
