# 1: 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.

# 2: When two vehicles from different directions arrive at the same time at a four-way stop:

If more than one vehicle arrives at the same time, the vehicle on the right goes first. At a four-way stop, vehicles must go in the order they stopped. If they stop at the same time and they are at right angles, the driver on the left must yield the right-of-way to the driver on the right.

# 3: When are road pavements usually most slippery?

Many road pavements are the most slippery when it first starts to rain or snow because oil and dust have not yet washed away. Slow down at the first sign of rain, drizzle, or snow on the road. Turn on your windshield wipers, headlights, and defroster.

# 4: Passing another vehicle to the right on an unpaved shoulder is:

You must not drive on or across the shoulder or edge line of the road unless a sign allows it or when indicated by a traffic officer.

# 5: If you see a pedestrian with a white cane at a crosswalk, you must:

A special right-of-way law allows blind pedestrians to go across the road with a guide dog or a white or metal cane. You must always give them the right-of-way when they are trying to cross at a marked or unmarked crosswalk even if the traffic signals or other right-of-way rules are not in their favor.

# 6: What does the Implied Consent law mean?

If you are arrested for an alcohol or drug-related violation, the police officer will almost surely request that you submit to a chemical test. Under New York's Implied Consent law, by driving a car in this state you are considered to have already given your consent to take such a test.

# 7: 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.

# 8: If you are sitting in a large truck, is your total view of road better or worse than in a car?

Many drivers falsely assume that a trucker can see the road better because they sit twice as high as the driver of a car. Different from cars, large vehicles have deep blind spots behind them. They also have larger blind spots on both sides. Tractors with long hoods can have a blind spot of 20 feet in front of the vehicle. You should avoid these no zones.

# 9: You are driving on a two-way road and see an emergency vehicle with flashing lights coming toward you in the opposite lane. What should you do?

When you hear or see an emergency vehicle approaching your vehicle from any direction, including on your side of an expressway or limited access highway, safely pull over immediately to the right edge of the road and stop. You must pull over and stop for an emergency vehicle even if it is coming toward you in the opposite lane of a two-way roadway.

# 10: Which of the following is generally true about large trucks?

Do not underestimate the size and speed of an approaching tractor-trailer or other large vehicle. Its larger size will often make it appear to move at a slower speed than it really is. Also, from a distance it may not appear to be as large as it really is. The other vehicle will often reach you before you expect! A substantial number of car-truck collisions take place at intersections because the driver of the car does not realize how close the truck is or how quickly it is approaching.

# 11: Coffee, exercise and cold showers:

The only way to effectively reduce your BAC is to spend time without drinking. Coffee, fresh air, vitamins, exercise and cold showers cannot reduce your BAC and the effects of alcohol. They can help you remain awake, but it can not change your BAC or make you sober.

# 12: What is a no-zone in terms of driving?

No-zone is a highway safety term that describes areas on the side, front and rear of large trucks where passenger vehicles disappear from view and where accidents are most likely to occur. Different from cars, large vehicles have deep blind spots behind them. They also have larger blind spots on both sides. Tractors with long hoods can have a blind spot of 20 feet in front of the vehicle. You should avoid these no zones.

# 13: Which of the following must you obey over the other three?

Directions given by traffic officers take precedence over signs, signals or pavement markings. If a traffic officer signals you to stop at a green light, for example, you must stop. If an officer signals you to drive through a red light or stop sign, you must do so. Among those authorized to direct traffic are police officers, peace officers such as on-duty auxiliary or fire police, highway work area flag persons, and school crossing guards.

# 14: 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.

# 15: When driving in this State and no speed limit is posted, you should generally not drive faster than:

You must obey the posted speed limit, or, if no limit is posted, drive no faster than 55 mph. Know that some cities have speed limits less than 55 mph that is not always posted. For example, the speed limit is 25 mph in New York City unless another limit is posted.

# 16: When a traffic signal is showing a flashing red light, you must:

A flashing red signal light means stop. After stopping, you may proceed when it is safe. Observe the right-of-way rules.
