# 1: Typical social doses of marijuana:

Research has shown that even typical social doses of marijuana can affect concentration, judgment, and the sensory and perceptual skills needed for careful driving. People who are under marijuana's influence have impaired sensory and perceptual abilities.

# 2: At an intersection where there are no signs or signals, you must:

At intersections not controlled by signs or signals, or where two or more drivers stop at STOP signs 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: If you are planning a turn and bright sunlight makes your signal lights hard to see, it is a good idea to:

The law requires you to signal a turn or lane change with your turn lights or hand signals. If bright sunlight makes the signal lights hard to see, it can be a good idea to use hand signals.

# 4: When a traffic signal is showing a steady green arrow, you:

A green arrow means you may enter the intersection to make the movement indicated by the arrow. This is known as a protected turn. If the green arrow comes on at a red light, you may turn in the direction of the arrow. You must yield the right of way to all pedestrians and vehicles already in the intersection. Remember, the green arrow does not mean that ALL other traffic is stopped by a red light. Traffic may turn from the opposing direction and vehicles going straight in your direction may also have a green light.

# 5: If your wheels suddenly run off the pavement onto the shoulder, you should:

If your wheels move off the pavement, do not pull the steering wheel back. Ease your foot off the gas pedal and brake gently. When your vehicle has decreased speed, check for traffic behind you, then turn carefully back onto the pavement.

# 6: When children are nearby, what should you do before backing out of a driveway?

Before backing into a driveway, or out of it, get out of the vehicle and check behind your vehicle.

# 7: 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.

# 8: When driving in a fog, you should:

Keep your headlights on low beam. Reduce your speed. Increase your following distance. Signal your turns further ahead of time than usual to give other drivers and roadway users increased warning. Brake early when slowing behind another vehicle or coming to an intersection stop.

# 9: What does a NO STOPPING sign mean?

Remember, you must know where parking is illegal and what NO PARKING, NO STANDING and NO STOPPING signs indicate. A NO STOPPING sign means that you may stop only in order to obey a traffic sign, signal or officer, or to avoid conflicts with other vehicles.

# 10: A minor is driving in a public place after drinking alcohol. He or she has committed a “per se offense” under the state’s zero tolerance law if a test shows a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of:

Under the state's zero tolerance law, it is a violation for a person under age 21 to drive with any BAC that can be measured (the per offense is defined as .02 to .07). If BAC is more than .05 percent a person may be charged with DWI or DWAI in criminal court.

# 11: True or false? You can drink alcohol while driving as long as your blood alcohol concentration remains less than .08 percent.

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.

# 12: In a vehicle with air bags, you should grip the steering wheel by approximately:

Keep your hands on opposite sides of the steering wheel, at the 3 and 9 clock positions, to keep them away if the air bag engages.

# 13: You may sound your horn in these situations, except:

Your horn is important safety equipment that could become your only means of warning other drivers or pedestrians of possible problems. It must be used properly, not to express anger at other drivers or pedestrians. It is illegal to sound your horn when you approach or pass a horse.

# 14: When driving in a roundabout, you should:

While inside the roundabout, remain in your lane until you are ready to exit. Do not stop, change lanes, or pass other vehicles.

# 15: What does the diamond symbol in the left lane tell you?

Pavement markings - Permit Practice New York
Lanes marked with a diamond symbol are known as carpool or high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. The symbol is used to designate reserved lanes for buses, high-occupancy vehicles, bicycles, or other special vehicles.

# 16: 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.
