Not enough to pass :-(

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.

1. Do not pass:
On a hill.

The only place where you may lawfully throw your trash on the highway is into a litter barrel. Litter barrels are also found at all rest/picnic areas. Signs may indicate when a litter barrel is ahead on the road.

When their vehicle has a mechanical problem.
30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise.

All of the above.

Factors that can affect braking distance include how fast your vehicle is traveling, the condition of your brakes and tires, and the condition of the pavement.

8. When you see this black and yellow sign, it means:
The road to the right is for one-way traffic only.
That due to upcoming roadwork, there is a detour to the right.
Slow down because the road ahead changes direction at an extreme angle.
There is a crossroad to your right.

This sign indicates that the road ahead changes direction at an extreme angle (in this case, to the right). Before you reach such an extreme curve, you should slow down as much as you would when making a turn at an intersection.

9. When driving in a construction zone, you should be prepared:
To stop.
To change lanes.
For unexpected movement from workers or equipment.
All of the above.

When you are in a construction and maintenance work area, be prepared to slow down or stop as you approach workers and equipment. Be prepared to change lanes. Be prepared to react to unexpected movements of workers and equipment.

10. You have the right-of-way when turning left on which of the following traffic signals?
A solid green light
A flashing yellow light
A green arrow pointing left

A green steady arrow means you may pass through the intersection in the direction that the arrow is pointing. Oncoming traffic is required to stop for turning traffic.

Highway changes ahead and to the right.
Hiking trails ahead and to the right.
Hotel ahead and to the right.

Drive in the bicycle lane until you get a chance to pass.
Slow down and give them as much space as possible.
Rush ahead to pull in front of the bicyclist.

The slightest contact between a car and a motorcycle can mean a spill or injury for the rider. Allow a following distance of at least four to six seconds when following a motorcycle so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency.

29. This sign means:
The highway ahead curves only to the right.
