Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Road Laws

Which of the following indicates the minimum amount of time needed to create a safe buffer of distance between vehicles?

Possible Answers:

None of these

Correct answer:

Explanation:

It is recommended that drivers create a distance of four seconds between vehicles. This enables the driver to have ample time to respond to emergencies. A shorter distance creates danger for both cars following one another because at this distance the driver behind the leading vehicle may not have time to react to sudden movements. In order to create this distance, the driver of the trailing car should mark a distinct, stationary spot on the road and count for seconds until they pass it. In doing so, they will create a proper buffer of distance between vehicles.
