# 1: Hydroplaning occurs:

In heavy rain, your tires can begin to ride on the water that is on top of the road pavement. This hydroplaning can cause complete loss of traction and control of steering. Hydroplaning normally occurs at higher speeds, but it also can occur if your tires are tread worn or not inflated properly. When there is heavy rain, it always makes sense to drive more slowly. If your vehicle begins to lose traction, decrease your speed even more.

# 2: On which side should you pass a barricade with this panel?

# 3: You meet a school bus that has stopped on the other side of the highway. The bus has activated its flashing red lights. When are you allowed to proceed without stopping?

In New York State, you must stop for a school bus with flashing red lights even if it is stopped on the opposite side of a divided highway.

# 4: Left turn against a traffic light showing a red arrow:

In New York, you may not turn right or left against a red arrow.

# 5: You reduce your risk of hitting a deer or other type animal on the road, if you are extra careful:

Use extreme caution when driving at dawn and dusk. This is when driver visibility is poor and the deer are most active.

# 6: When parking close to a railroad crossing, you must keep this distance:

You may not park your vehicle within 50 feet of a railroad crossing.

# 7: If you are being followed closely (tailgated), you should:

Most rear end collisions are caused by the vehicle in back following too closely. If a driver tailgates you, move to another lane if possible, or slow down and pull off the road to let the driver go by you. Be sure to signal when you drive off the road and when you return to it. Do not press your brakes to warn the offending driver, this could make a difficult situation become even more dangerous.

# 8: You see a reflective orange triangle on a vehicle ahead. What does it mean?

Slow-moving vehicles have an orange/red triangle on the back. It looks like the sign in the picture.

# 9: It is against the law to have an open alcoholic beverage container in your vehicle, except if it is kept:

It is a traffic infraction for a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle on a public highway, street or road, to drink an alcoholic beverage, or to possess an alcoholic beverage with the intent of drinking it. The open container law covers the passenger area of any motor vehicle, including unlocked glove compartments and any other areas of the vehicle that are readily accessible to the driver or passengers while in their seats.

# 10: A person riding a bicycle on public streets and highways:

Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. They must obey the rules of the road just as motor vehicle drivers do.

# 11: If you see a deer crossing the road, you should:

Deer travel in groups. If you see one, expect more. (Deer tend to fixate on headlights, so flashing them may cause the animal to freeze in the road.)

# 12: You are driving the children of a good friend. The children are 12 years old. Who is responsible for making sure that they wear seat belts?

You, the driver must make sure that each passenger under 16 obeys the law. The driver can face a fine of $25 to $100 and receive three penalty points for each violation.

# 13: What should you do if you feel tired and nothing seems to help you stay awake while driving?

Find a safe place to stop for a break in response to symptoms of fatigue. Take a brief nap (15 to 45 minutes). Drink coffee or another source of caffeine to promote short-term alertness if needed. If you think you may be at risk of falling asleep behind the wheel, you should not depend on the radio, open window or other tricks to keep you awake.

# 14: Orange colored signs and flags mean you should watch for:

The color orange tells you that you are nearing or in a work zone. Construction projects and work areas often change traffic flow and traffic patterns. Signs, barricades, and channeling devices (such as cones, panels and drums) are placed to direct you through the work zone safely and protect workers and flag persons.

# 15: Which of the following vehicles must always stop before crossing railroad tracks?

School buses with or without passengers, other buses while carrying passengers, and vehicles carrying explosives or flammable cargo must stop at all railroad crossings. Keep this in mind if you are following one of these vehicles.
