    C. By pregnant women below the abdomen and the shoulder belt above the belly
    Explanation
    The lap belt should be worn by pregnant women below the abdomen and the shoulder belt above the belly. This positioning ensures that the lap belt sits low on the hips, avoiding pressure on the belly, which could harm the unborn baby in the event of a collision. The shoulder belt should be positioned across the chest and over the shoulder, providing proper restraint and support for the upper body. This configuration is recommended for pregnant women to maximize safety and minimize potential harm to both the mother and the baby.

    The safest place for children under 12 or under to ride in a vehicle equipped with air bags is ________

    Correct Answer
    the back seat
    Explanation
    The back seat is the safest place for children under 12 or under to ride in a vehicle equipped with air bags. This is because air bags are designed to protect adult passengers and can be dangerous for young children. Placing children in the back seat reduces the risk of injury from air bags deploying during a crash. Additionally, the back seat provides more protection in the event of a collision, as it is further away from the impact zone compared to the front seat.

  • 10. 

    The two- second rule for following at a safe distance will hold true at ________ 

    Correct Answer
    Any speed
    Explanation
    The two-second rule for following at a safe distance will hold true at any speed. This rule suggests that a driver should maintain a distance from the vehicle in front of them that allows for at least two seconds of reaction time. This is important because it gives the driver enough time to react to any sudden changes or hazards on the road. Regardless of the speed at which a vehicle is traveling, following this rule helps ensure a safe and appropriate distance between vehicles.

      The lane nearest the left curb

    • B.

      The lane nearest to the center of the street

    • C.

      The lane nearest the right curb

    Correct Answer
    A. The lane nearest the left curb
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the lane nearest the left curb. When making a left turn from a one-way street, you should position your vehicle in the lane closest to the left curb. This allows for a smooth and safe turn, as you will be following the flow of traffic and positioning yourself in the appropriate lane to complete the turn. Being in the lane nearest the left curb also ensures that you are not obstructing or conflicting with any vehicles in other lanes.

    Motorist are required by law when passing a bicycle traveling in the same direction to allow a minimum distance of: 

    • A.

      1 foot

    • B.

      3 feet

    • C.

      Safely away from the bicycle

    Correct Answer
    B. 3 feet
    Explanation
    Motorists are required by law to allow a minimum distance of 3 feet when passing a bicycle traveling in the same direction. This is important to ensure the safety of the cyclist and prevent accidents. By giving enough space, motorists can reduce the risk of collisions and provide a buffer zone for the cyclist to maneuver safely. This distance allows for any sudden movements or changes in direction by the cyclist and helps to prevent any potential hazards or dangers.

    Correct Answer
    C. Check for cars, increase your speed to match the flow of traffic and merge when the way is clear
    Explanation
    When entering an interstate highway, it is important to check for cars, increase your speed to match the flow of traffic, and merge when the way is clear. This is because entering the highway at a lower speed than the flow of traffic can be dangerous and disrupt the flow of vehicles. It is also important to merge when the way is clear to avoid causing any accidents or hindering the movement of other vehicles on the highway.

    Interstate driving demands required the driver to:

    • A.

      Have a complete awareness of higher speed driving

    • B.

      Constant alertness by the driver

    • C.

      Both of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both of the above
    Explanation
    Interstate driving requires the driver to have a complete awareness of higher speed driving and maintain constant alertness. This is because driving on interstates usually involves higher speeds compared to local roads, and the driver needs to be fully aware of this to ensure safe and efficient driving. Additionally, constant alertness is necessary to react quickly to any potential hazards or changes in traffic conditions on the interstate. Therefore, both of these requirements are essential for interstate driving.

    Continuous hard breaking on ice ad snow often:

    • A.

      Helps you stop faster

    • B.

      Locks the front wheels causing the loss of steering control

    • C.

      Keeps the brakes hot and prevents them from freezing

    Correct Answer
    B. Locks the front wheels causing the loss of steering control
    Explanation
    Continuous hard braking on ice and snow can cause the front wheels to lock up, resulting in a loss of steering control. This happens because the friction between the tires and the icy/snowy surface is reduced, making it difficult for the wheels to grip and turn. As a result, the vehicle becomes uncontrollable and may slide or skid in a straight line, increasing the risk of accidents. Therefore, it is important to avoid hard braking in such conditions to maintain control of the vehicle.

    When driving in foggy conditions, do not put headlights on high beam bc: 

    • A.

      The light from the fog creates blurry vision on your eyes

    • B.

      Approaching vehicles won't be able to see your oncoming vehicle

    • C.

      Low beam provides greater visibility and you can be better seen by other vehicles

    Correct Answer
    C. Low beam provides greater visibility and you can be better seen by other vehicles
    Explanation
    When driving in foggy conditions, it is advised not to put headlights on high beam because low beam provides greater visibility. High beam lights can reflect off the fog and create a glare, making it difficult for the driver to see clearly. Additionally, using high beam lights can blind oncoming vehicles, making it dangerous for both drivers. By using low beam lights, the driver can have a better view of the road and other vehicles can easily see the oncoming vehicle, reducing the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

    Driving at night is: 

    • A.

      Safer because of less traffic and less distraction

    • B.

      More hazardous because your range of visibility is limited by your headlights

    • C.

      Safer and allows you to increase your speed while adjusting to road conditions

    Correct Answer
    B. More hazardous because your range of visibility is limited by your headlights
    Explanation
    Driving at night is more hazardous because your range of visibility is limited by your headlights. The darkness reduces the driver's ability to see obstacles, pedestrians, and other vehicles on the road. The headlights only illuminate a certain distance ahead, making it difficult to react to sudden hazards or changes in the road. Additionally, driving at night increases the risk of fatigue and drowsiness, further impairing the driver's ability to safely navigate the road.

      A lesser penalty than for alcohol

    • C.

      Absolutely no penalty at all

    Correct Answer
    A. The same penalty as for alcohol
    Explanation
    Driving while under the influence of drugs carries the same penalty as driving under the influence of alcohol. This means that if a person is caught driving while impaired by drugs, they will face the same legal consequences and penalties as someone caught driving under the influence of alcohol. This is because both alcohol and drugs impair a person's ability to drive safely and pose a risk to themselves and others on the road.

      Two hours

    • C.

      Three hours

    Correct Answer
    C. Three hours
    Explanation
    The correct answer is three hours because it takes approximately one hour for the body to metabolize one standard drink of alcohol. Since there are three beers consumed in the past hour, it would take three hours for the alcohol from all three beers to be completely eliminated from the bloodstream.

    • A.

      Alertness and concentration

    • B.

      Reaction time and coordination

    • C.

      All of the above are affected

    Correct Answer
    C. All of the above are affected
    Explanation
    Alcohol and/or drugs impair a person's ability to drive safely. They affect alertness and concentration, making it difficult for the driver to stay focused on the road and react quickly to potential hazards. Additionally, these substances also affect reaction time and coordination, making it harder for the driver to control the vehicle and respond appropriately to traffic situations. Therefore, all of the mentioned driving skills are affected when alcohol and/or drugs are used.

    • C.

      Both the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both the above
    Explanation
    Parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant is illegal because it can obstruct access to the hydrant during emergencies, hindering the ability of firefighters to quickly access water. Similarly, parking within 50 feet of a railroad crossing is illegal to ensure that there is enough space for vehicles to safely stop and clear the tracks, preventing accidents and allowing for the passage of trains without obstruction. Therefore, both parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant and within 50 feet of a railroad crossing are illegal.
