    Correct Answer
    C. Apply the handbrake
    Explanation
    After successfully crossing the road and making a turn, the next step is to apply the handbrake. This is important to ensure that the car remains stationary and does not roll forward or backward unintentionally. Applying the handbrake provides an extra layer of safety while the car is stopped, especially if there is a slope or incline. It is a standard procedure to engage the handbrake whenever the car is parked or stopped for an extended period of time.

Looking out of the rear window allows you to see any obstacles or approaching vehicles from behind, helping you to avoid any potential accidents.
