Ouch! While you were on a roll there for a few questions, you didn’t pass this time. But I know this test, and I think you’ll pass next time. Really.

18. Stopping in a turn can be difficult because:
There is decreased traction available for stopping while the bike is leaning.
The rider is usually focused on the turn and not on the braking.
The brake controls do not work in turns.
