    • A.

      Cyclists

    • B.

      Pedestrians

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cyclists
    B. Pedestrians
    D. Motorists
    Explanation
    At road junctions, cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists are the most vulnerable. Road junctions are areas where different traffic streams intersect, increasing the chances of accidents and collisions. Cyclists are vulnerable due to their smaller size and lack of protection, making them less visible to other drivers. Pedestrians are also vulnerable as they are not enclosed in a vehicle and are at risk of being hit by vehicles. Motorists, although they may have more protection, can still be vulnerable at junctions due to the potential for sudden lane changes or collisions with other vehicles.

    A. Even When Street Lights Are Not Lit
    C. So Others Can See You
    Explanation
    It is important to switch your lights on when driving at dusk, even when street lights are not lit. This is because the visibility decreases during dusk, making it difficult for other drivers to see your vehicle. By having your lights on, you make yourself more visible to others on the road, reducing the risk of accidents. Therefore, switching your lights on at dusk is necessary for the safety of yourself and others.

Elderly individuals may have slower reaction times and impaired vision or hearing, which could cause them to misjudge the distance and speed of oncoming vehicles. Therefore, it is crucial to exercise caution and be prepared to slow down or stop if necessary to ensure their safety.

By providing advance warning, these signs help promote safety on the roads and prevent accidents.

The insurance certificate is needed to establish that the vehicle is insured, while the vehicle registration document provides information about the ownership and registration status of the vehicle.

      You Think The Casualty Is Dead

    The correct answer is "The Casualty Can Breathe Without Help." When giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, it is important to continue until the casualty is able to breathe on their own. This indicates that their airway is clear and they are receiving sufficient oxygen. Stopping before this point could be detrimental to the casualty's health and potentially lead to further complications.
