Right of Way: Traffic Rules Questions and Answers

  • 1. 

    The law says who must yield the right of way. It does not give anyone the right-of-way. You should do everything you can to keep from hitting a pedestrian or another vehicle. This does not include bicycles or animal-drawn vehicles.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer being False is that the statement is incorrect. The law does give certain individuals the right-of-way in specific situations. For example, at a four-way stop, the law typically grants the right-of-way to the vehicle that arrives first. Similarly, pedestrians generally have the right-of-way at crosswalks. Therefore, it is important to understand and follow the rules of the road to ensure safety and avoid accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    At an intersection where there are no signs or traffic lights, you  must yield to the vehicle __________________.

    • A.

      Coming from the left.

    • B.

      Coming from the right.

    • C.

      Coming from the left or right. Who ever gets there after you.

    Correct Answer
    B. Coming from the right.
    Explanation
    At an intersection where there are no signs or traffic lights, you must yield to the vehicle coming from the right. This means that if two vehicles arrive at the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right of way and should be allowed to proceed first. This rule helps to establish a clear and consistent flow of traffic in the absence of any other traffic control devices.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    At a ____________________, the driver reaching the intersection first goes first (after coming to a complete stop).

    • A.

      4 way stop

    • B.

      Rail road crossing

    • C.

      Two way street

    Correct Answer
    A. 4 way stop
    Explanation
    At a 4-way stop, the driver reaching the intersection first has the right of way and can proceed first, after coming to a complete stop. This rule is implemented to ensure a smooth flow of traffic and prevent accidents at intersections. It allows drivers to take turns and reduces the chances of collisions.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    At a four-way stop, if more than one vehicle arrives at the same time, the vehicle on the ___________ goes first.

    • A.

      Left

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      Left or right it doesn't matter

    Correct Answer
    B. Right
    Explanation
    At a four-way stop, if more than one vehicle arrives at the same time, the vehicle on the right goes first. This is because in most countries, including the United States, the right-of-way rule is followed at intersections. According to this rule, the vehicle on the right has the right to proceed first, ensuring a smooth flow of traffic and preventing confusion or accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You must yield to vehicles already on the main road if you are entering a road from a driveway, alley, or roadside.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When entering a road from a driveway, alley, or roadside, it is important to yield to vehicles already on the main road. This means that if there are vehicles approaching on the main road, you must wait for them to pass before entering. This rule is in place to ensure the safety of all drivers and prevent accidents. By yielding to vehicles on the main road, you are allowing them to continue their flow of traffic without interruption. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You do not have to yield to traffic already in a roundabout.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When approaching a roundabout, you must yield to traffic already in the roundabout. This means that if there are vehicles already circulating in the roundabout, you must wait for a safe gap before entering. Failing to yield to traffic in the roundabout can cause accidents and disrupt the flow of traffic. Therefore, the statement "You do not have to yield to traffic already in a roundabout" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You must yield to cross traffic if your roadway dead-ends.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If your roadway dead-ends, it means that there is no through traffic and you are approaching a point where the road ends. In this situation, you must yield to cross traffic because they have the right of way. Yielding to cross traffic ensures safety and allows for a smooth flow of vehicles. Therefore, the statement "You must yield to cross traffic if your roadway dead-ends" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • C.

      When the vehicles wants to pass you.

    Correct Answer
    A. When passing a vehicle traveling in the same direction even if it is slowing down or coming to a stop.
    Explanation
    When passing a vehicle traveling in the same direction, even if it is slowing down or coming to a stop, you must yield to that vehicle. This means that if you are attempting to overtake or pass another vehicle on the road, you must give the right of way to the vehicle you are passing, regardless of its speed or intention to stop. This ensures safety on the road and prevents accidents or collisions when changing lanes or overtaking another vehicle.

    Explanation
    When entering or crossing a roadway from a driveway, alley, or parking lot, it is important to stop before crossing a sidewalk. This is because sidewalks are usually located alongside roadways and are used by pedestrians to safely navigate their way. Stopping before crossing a sidewalk allows drivers to ensure that there are no pedestrians or other obstacles before proceeding onto the roadway. It helps to prevent accidents and ensures the safety of both drivers and pedestrians.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    True. In many places, it is illegal to drive on a sidewalk except when crossing it. Sidewalks are designed for pedestrian use, and using them for vehicle traffic can pose a danger to pedestrians and is generally prohibited to ensure safety. However, there may be specific regulations or exceptions in certain situations or locations, so it's important to be aware of local traffic laws and regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • B.

      With a baby stroller

    • C.

      Using a guide dog or a white cane

    Correct Answer
    C. Using a guide dog or a white cane
    Explanation
    Pedestrians using a guide dog or a white cane have absolute right-of-way, even if they are not at an intersection. This is because these individuals are visually impaired or have limited mobility, and rely on their guide dog or white cane for navigation and safety. It is important for other road users to be aware of and respect their right-of-way to ensure their safety and well-being.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If you see anyone in the roadway with a guide dog or a white cane, stop at least _________________feet away until the person is off the roadway.

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      15

    Correct Answer
    B. 10
    Explanation
    If you see anyone in the roadway with a guide dog or a white cane, you should stop at least 10 feet away until the person is off the roadway. This distance allows the person with visual impairment to safely navigate the road without any interference or danger from passing vehicles. It is important to give them enough space and time to cross safely.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Drivers turning left must yield to vehicles approaching from the opposite direction, including bicycles.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When drivers are making a left turn, they are required to yield to any oncoming traffic, including vehicles and bicycles, to ensure a safe and smooth flow of traffic. This is because vehicles approaching from the opposite direction have the right of way and should not be obstructed. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

      Ambulances

    • C.

      Police vehicles

    • D.

      All of the answers

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the answers
    Explanation
    When emergency vehicles such as firetrucks, ambulances, or police vehicles are using a siren, air horn, or flashing lights, it is important to yield the right-of-way to them. This is because these vehicles are responding to emergencies and need to reach their destination quickly and safely. By yielding the right-of-way, other drivers can help ensure that emergency vehicles can pass through traffic unimpeded, allowing them to provide necessary assistance or respond to emergencies effectively. Therefore, all of the answers are correct as all emergency vehicles with sirens, air horns, or flashing lights should be given the right-of-way.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      Left or right

    Correct Answer
    B. Right
    Explanation
    When yielding to an emergency vehicle, it is important to pull over to the right edge of the road or as near to the edge as possible. This allows the emergency vehicle to pass safely and quickly on the opposite side of the road, ensuring that they can reach their destination without delay. Pulling over to the right also helps to maintain the flow of traffic and prevent any potential accidents or congestion.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    It is not illegal to pass a moving emergency vehicle with its red or blue lights on and siren operating.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is illegal to pass a moving emergency vehicle with its red or blue lights on and siren operating. When emergency lights and sirens are activated, it indicates that the emergency vehicle is responding to an emergency and other drivers are required to yield the right of way and make way for the emergency vehicle. Passing a moving emergency vehicle in this situation can be dangerous and is against the law to ensure the safety of both the emergency responders and other road users.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    This law requires drivers to change lanes away from stopped law enforcement, emergency vehicles, tow trucks, road machinery, highway construction or maintenance vehicles with flashing emergency lights.

    • A.

      No passing law

    • B.

      Move over law

    • C.

      Yield to emergency vehicles law

    Correct Answer
    B. Move over law
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "move over law." This law requires drivers to move to a lane that is not nearest to the stopped emergency vehicle, tow truck, or road machinery that is using flashing emergency lights. The purpose of this law is to ensure the safety of emergency personnel and other workers on the road by providing them with enough space to carry out their duties without the risk of being hit by passing vehicles. By moving over to a different lane, drivers can help prevent accidents and create a safer environment on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    People riding animals or driving animal-drawn vehicles on the roadway do not have the same rights and duties as motor vehicle operators.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because people riding animals or driving animal-drawn vehicles on the roadway do have the same rights and duties as motor vehicle operators. According to traffic laws, all road users are expected to follow the same rules and regulations to ensure safety and maintain order on the roads. Regardless of the mode of transportation, everyone has a responsibility to obey traffic signals, yield to pedestrians, and follow speed limits, among other things.

    Rate this question:

  • 20.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. In many places, the entire funeral procession is expected to obey traffic signs and signals, just like any other group of vehicles on the road. It's essential to follow local traffic laws and regulations, which can vary from one jurisdiction to another. Some regions may have specific rules or exceptions for funeral processions, but in general, all vehicles within the procession should adhere to traffic laws for safety and traffic flow. Always consult the local laws and regulations to understand the specific rules that apply in your area.

    Rate this question:

  • 21.

This is especially important when the procession is moving through traffic or at night. Therefore, the statement that vehicles in a funeral procession are not allowed to have their headlights on is false.
