    If you have a tailgater, you should slow down and increase your following distance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    When encountering a tailgater, it is important to prioritize safety. Slowing down and increasing the following distance between your vehicle and the tailgater can help create a safer driving environment. This action allows for more time and space to react to any sudden stops or changes in traffic conditions, reducing the risk of a rear-end collision. By choosing to slow down and increase the following distance, you are taking a proactive approach to ensure your safety and the safety of others on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If you are not able to clear traffic while running with "lights and siren", you should...

    • A.

      Lay on the siren until everyone moves.

    • B.

      Rush into the oncoming traffic lane.

    • C.

      Advise dispatch that you now have to go non-emergency to the call.

    • D.

      Turn off your lights/siren until the light has changed and proceed with traffic clearing the intersection and then resume emergency travel.

    Correct Answer
    D. Turn off your lights/siren until the light has changed and proceed with traffic clearing the intersection and then resume emergency travel.
    Explanation
    When unable to clear traffic while running with lights and siren, it is important to prioritize safety. Rushing into the oncoming traffic lane or laying on the siren until everyone moves can be dangerous and increase the risk of accidents. Advising dispatch that you need to go non-emergency to the call may not be the best option if the situation still requires urgent attention. Therefore, the best course of action is to turn off your lights and siren until the light has changed, proceed with caution to clear the intersection, and then resume emergency travel.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You do not have to come to a complete stop all red lights.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is incorrect. According to traffic laws, it is mandatory to come to a complete stop at all red lights. Failing to do so can result in penalties and is considered a violation. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    While passing through a red light you must proceed one lane at a time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When passing through a red light, it is important to proceed one lane at a time. This means that you should not change lanes or cross multiple lanes while the light is red. Doing so can be dangerous and increase the risk of accidents. Staying in your lane and proceeding cautiously ensures that you are following traffic rules and minimizing the chances of collisions with other vehicles.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      Be aware of open lanes.

    • B.

      Use caution around trucks and buses.

    • C.

      Watch for pedestrians

    • D.

      Cover the brake as you proceed through the intersection.

    • E.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All the above." When crossing through a red light, it is important to be aware of open lanes, as there may be vehicles coming from unexpected directions. Using caution around trucks and buses is crucial, as they have larger blind spots and may require more time and space to stop. Watching for pedestrians is essential to ensure their safety and avoid accidents. Lastly, covering the brake as you proceed through the intersection allows you to react quickly if needed. Therefore, all of the mentioned points should be kept in mind when crossing through a red light.

    Rate this question:

    When other drivers see you with your lights and siren on, they will never turn in front of you.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because there is no guarantee that other drivers will never turn in front of a vehicle with lights and sirens on. While it is expected that drivers should yield to emergency vehicles, there are instances where drivers may not see or hear the lights and sirens, or may make a mistake in judgment. Therefore, it is important for emergency vehicle operators to remain cautious and prepared for any potential hazards on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When crossing on green, the EVO should...

    • A.

      Slow down and proceed with caution

    • B.

      Continue through the intersection.

    • C.

      Look in all directions

    • D.

      Both A and C

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and C
    Explanation
    When crossing on green, the EVO should slow down and proceed with caution because even though they have the right of way, they still need to be aware of any potential hazards or other vehicles that may not have stopped at a red light. Additionally, they should look in all directions to ensure that it is safe to proceed through the intersection and to be aware of any pedestrians or cyclists that may be crossing.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Driving an ambulance is safer than driving your car?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not necessarily true that driving an ambulance is safer than driving your car. While ambulances may have certain safety features and precautions in place, such as sirens and lights, they also face unique challenges such as navigating through traffic at high speeds and dealing with unpredictable road conditions. Additionally, ambulance drivers may be under pressure to reach their destination quickly, which can increase the risk of accidents. Therefore, it cannot be concluded that driving an ambulance is inherently safer than driving a personal car.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What are some concerns when approaching an intersection?

    • A.

      Restricted visibility

    • B.

      Assumption of other driver's actions

    • C.

      Confused drivers

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    When approaching an intersection, there are several concerns to consider. One concern is restricted visibility, which can occur due to obstacles or poor weather conditions, making it difficult to see other vehicles or pedestrians. Another concern is the assumption of other driver's actions, as it is not always possible to predict what other drivers will do at an intersection. Lastly, confused drivers can also be a concern, as they may make sudden or unexpected movements that can lead to accidents. Therefore, all of the options listed above are valid concerns when approaching an intersection.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Concerns for the EVO while approaching intersections include...

    • A.

      Congested areas

    • B.

      Pedestrians/Bicycles/Skateboarders

    • C.

      Complex traffic control systems

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    When approaching intersections, drivers of electric vehicles (EVOs) need to be concerned about various factors, including congested areas, the presence of pedestrians, bicycles, and skateboarders, as well as complex traffic control systems. Congested areas can increase the risk of accidents and require extra caution. The presence of pedestrians, bicycles, and skateboarders adds another layer of potential hazards, as they may be difficult to spot and unpredictable in their movements. Additionally, complex traffic control systems, such as multiple traffic lights or confusing signage, can pose challenges for EVO drivers. Therefore, all of the mentioned concerns are valid when approaching intersections in an EVO.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You must come to a complete STOP at ALL red lights and STOP signs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is explaining that it is necessary to completely stop at all red lights and stop signs. This means that drivers should not just slow down or roll through these intersections, but actually bring their vehicle to a complete halt before proceeding. This is an important rule of the road to ensure safety and avoid accidents. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Always assume that the other driver will stop.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because it is not always safe to assume that the other driver will stop. It is important to drive defensively and be prepared for the possibility that the other driver may not stop or may not follow traffic rules. By assuming that the other driver will stop, it can lead to complacency and increase the risk of accidents. It is better to be cautious and attentive while driving.

      Parking Lot

    • D.

      Side streets

    Correct Answer
    B. Intersections
    Explanation
    The most common accidents occur at intersections when responding with "lights and sirens" because this is where vehicles from different directions converge. The urgency of the situation can cause drivers to be more focused on reaching their destination quickly, which may lead to reckless driving and a higher risk of accidents. Intersections also involve multiple lanes and potential blind spots, increasing the chances of collisions.

      Driving too slowly

    Correct Answer
    C. Distracted and Inattentive driving
    Explanation

This is because when drivers are not paying attention to the road, their reaction time is slower and they are more likely to make mistakes. Distractions such as texting, talking on the phone, eating, or using a GPS device can all lead to accidents. Inattentive driving includes not being aware of other vehicles, not checking blind spots, or not obeying traffic signals. These behaviors increase the risk of collisions and make distracted and inattentive driving the leading cause of motor vehicle accidents.
