If your vehicle enters a skid, you should take your foot off of the brake and steer in the direction that you want to go. For example, if the rear of your vehicle is skidding to the left, you should steer to the left. This will help bring the front of the vehicle in line with the rear, thereby straightening out the vehicle's overall direction.
Driving more slowly than other traffic can be dangerous. Drivers behind you may become impatient and will be tempted to take dangerous risks to pass you.
A single broken line indicates that drivers may cross from either lane to change lanes. Dashed yellow lines alongside solid yellow lines indicate that passing is permitted from the lane next to the broken line, but not from the lane next to the solid line. Only change lanes when it is safe to do so.
When changing lanes, look over your shoulder in the direction you plan to move. Check for obstructions near the rear corners of your vehicle. These areas are called “blind spots” because you cannot see them by using your mirrors.
You must yield to pedestrians at all times. If the pedestrians are jaywalking or crossing the street where they should not be, you must still stop for them.
This sign indicates that there is a pedestrian crosswalk.
This sign informs drivers that they are leaving a divided roadway and approaching a two-way highway.
Dashed yellow lines separate single lanes of traffic moving in opposite directions. Passing is allowed when there is no oncoming traffic in the passing lane.
Warning signs are usually yellow with black markings. They alert you to conditions that are immediately ahead. This sign warns drivers that the number of lanes is reduced ahead and that traffic should merge left.
When leaving an interstate, you should maintain your speed until you enter the deceleration lane, at which point you should reduce your speed to the exit ramp's posted advisory speed.
A triangular yellow sign with black lettering indicates a no passing zone. It will appear on the left side of a two-way, two-lane roadway at the beginning of an area where prohibitive pavement markings are also used.
Alabama law requires that low beam headlights be turned on when windshield wipers are in use due to weather conditions. This will increase visibility and alert drivers to all vehicles on the roadway. Intermittent use of windshield wipers does not require headlight usage.
The law requires you to stop and yield the right-of-way at any intersection to a blind person who is using a guide dog or carrying a white cane tipped with red. Allow them to safely cross the intersection before proceeding.
Keep a space between your vehicle and parked vehicles. A person may step out of a parked vehicle or out from between the parked vehicles without looking. A driver may begin moving their vehicle before realizing you are there.
A five-sided yellow or yellow-green sign alerts drivers to either a school zone or school crossing.
A flashing red traffic light means the same thing as a stop sign. You must come to a complete stop, yield to other traffic and pedestrians, and then proceed when it safe to do so.
The only way to sober up after drinking alcohol is to allow time for your body to eliminate the alcohol in your system. Nothing you can do, including eating and drinking, can accelerate this process.
Slow down before you enter a curve because you do not know what may be ahead. Braking on a curve may cause you to skid.
This sign indicates parking spaces that are reserved for vehicles displaying Persons with Disabilities license plates, Disabled Veteran license plates, and/or disabled parking placards.
If there is danger, you may need to sound a sharp blast on your horn. Do this when a child or any other pedestrian is about to enter into the street in front of your moving vehicle.
White lines are used to separate lanes of traffic moving in the same direction. Dashed lines indicate that drivers directly next to the line are permitted to pass when it is safe to do so.
A number of drugs can impair your ability to drive, including depressant medications like tranquilizers and sedatives; over-the-counter cough syrups, cold tablets, and allergy medications (which may contain impairing substances like alcohol, codeine, or antihistamines); and illegal drugs.
Your emotions affect your ability to drive safely. If you are overly angry, excited, afraid, worried, or depressed, you should give yourself time to calm down before operating a vehicle. You need to be able to mentally focus on driving without thinking about the things that made you upset.
A five-sided sign indicates that you are near a school. Be aware and stop if children are in the crosswalk.
Warning signs are usually yellow with black markings. They alert you to conditions that are immediately ahead. There may be an upcoming change in traffic direction, a steep downgrade, or another potentially hazardous situation that requires action on the part of the driver.
Use your low beam headlights when driving in fog, rain, or snow. High beam lights can reflect off the weather conditions, lowering visibility even more.
Warning signs are usually yellow with black markings. They alert you to conditions that are immediately ahead. This sign tells drivers to prepare to allow traffic to safely merge from the right.
Airbags are important safety devices that provide protection in crashes. For best protection, a vehicle's lap and shoulder belts should be used in combination with airbags.
A downward-facing triangular sign is always a yield sign. Drivers must be prepared to slow down or stop when approaching a yield sign.
If worried, ill, nervous, frightened, angry, or depressed, let someone else drive. Driving while your mind is occupied by distracting thoughts is never safe.

This sign indicates that there is a crossroad ahead.
If a road has four or more lanes with two-way traffic, drive in the right lanes unless you are passing or turning left. If you are on an interstate highway and are driving below the speed of the flow of traffic, use the right lane.
When traffic control signals are not working, a driver must always treat the intersection as an all-way stop and come to a complete stop, unless otherwise directed by law enforcement. The driver must then look and yield the right-of-way before entering the intersection.
Slow down and proceed with caution if you see animals that are standing near the roadway. They may unexpectedly bolt or change direction at the last moment. Some animals travel in packs, so there may be more animals just out of sight that are also near the road.
This sign warns that a steep downgrade is ahead on the road. Drivers should check their brakes.
This sign indicates that a divided highway begins ahead.
If the headlights of an oncoming vehicle are blinding, glance toward the right edge of the road instead of looking directly ahead. This should keep your vehicle safely on the road until you pass the oncoming vehicle.
When making a left turn, you must yield to pedestrians, bicyclists, or other vehicles moving on their green light.
