  1. Expressway &Adverse ConditionsReview Quiz

  2. 1. A characteristic of expressways that helps to prevent head-on collisions is the • Median or barrier between opposing lanes of traffic. • Higher number of roadside hazards. • Higher speed limits. • Wide expressway shoulders. 10

  3. 2. Velocitation means • The same as highway hypnosis • Thinking the car is traveling slower than it really is. • Reducing speed when exiting. • Using cruise control to maintain a steady speed. 10

  4. 3. Stopping on an acceleration lane can cause • A rear-end collision. • A head-on collision. • Expressway traffic to stop. • A side-swipe collision. 10

  5. 4. If you enter an expressway ramp that you do not want, you should • Back up and leave the entrance ramp. • Turn around on the entrance ramp • Continue onto the expressway and use the next exit ramp. • Make a U-turn to leave the ramp. 10

  6. 5. A wolf pack on an expressway is a • Bunch of vehicles. • Bunch of wild dogs. • Widely scattered group of cars. • Driver alone in traffic. 10

  7. 6. The expressway is defined as a • High-speed privately owned highway. • Road designed for express transport. • Form of improved rural highway. • Limited-access or controlled-access highway. 10

  8. 7. If you miss the exit you want, you • Should make a U-turn and return to the exit. • Can stop and back up to the exit. • Must go to the next exit. • Should stop on the shoulder or median and back up to the exit ramp. 10

  9. 8. The acceleration lane is where you usually can • Expect others to yield right of way. • Adjust your speed to the flow of traffic. • Maintain a steady speed. • Accelerate regardless of traffic flow. 10

  10. 9. If there are signal lights on the entrance ramp, you • Must wait for a green light. • Can treat the red light as an advisory traffic control. • Do not have to stop for the red light. • Must stop if any light is on. 10

  11. 10. Expressway collisions tend to be more serious than those on other types of roads because • Expressway speeds are higher. • A median strip is present. • Expressways have more hazards. • There are so many traffic conflicts. 10

  12. 11. Assume that the common speed on the expressway is above the posted speed limit. You should • Drive at common speed. • Drive at the posted speed. • Drive at a speed between the posted speed and the common speed. • Drive at a speed so you force the others drivers to slow down. 10

  13. 12. As you drive on an expressway, you may be lulled into • A feeling of power. • Highway hypnosis. • Velocitation. • A hallucinogenic state. 10

  14. 13. A computer-controlled device that prevents your wheels from locking is • An anti-lock braking system. • A radar-controlled braking system. • A four-wheel disk braking system. • A non-locking braking system. 10

  15. 14. When driving in snow, you should use • Low-beam headlights & drive at the posted speed. • High-beam headlights & reduce speed. • Low-beam headlights & reduce speed. • High-beam headlights & drive at the posted speed. 10

  16. 15. Rain tends to make roadways the slickest • When the road has a clean surface. • Just after the rain stops. • About 15 minutes after the rain starts. • As the rain begins to fall 10

  17. 16. Hydroplaning occurs when your tires • Roll on the sidewall during a turn. • Lose all air pressure. • Lose contact with the road. • Have new treads and normal air. 10

  18. 17. When driving on slippery roads, you should • Always use cruise control. • Not use cruise control. • Use cruise control with low speed. • Use cruise control only on highways. 10

  19. 18. You can get a little better traction on wet roads by driving • At or near the posted speed limit. • In the tire tracks of the vehicle ahead. • Toward the right edge of the roadway. • With reduced tire air pressure. 10

  20. 19. Overdriving headlights means • Using low-beam rather than high-beam lights. • Your stopping distance is greater than the distance lighted by your lights. • You are looking too far ahead. • Using overdrive gear when using high-beam headlights. 10

  21. 20. If the rear of your vehicle skids to the right, you should • Steer straight ahead. • Steer to the left. • Swerve both left and right. • Steer to the right. 10

  22. 21. Just before dawn and dusk, turn on your • High-beam headlights. • Emergency flashers. • Parking lights. • Low-beam headlights. 10

  23. 22. When your headlights shine into fog, • Light is reflected forward by water particles. • Light is reflected back by water particles. • It is easier to see ahead of you. • Drive as you would normally. 10

  24. 23. Black ice • Is thin sheets of invisible ice. • Is well-traveled ice. • Is easy to see. • Provides more traction than regular ice. 10

  25. 24. If the oncoming driver at night fails to use low-beam headlights, you can attempt to reduce glare by • Keeping your headlights on high-beam. • Constantly looking ahead in your lane. • Frequently looking ahead with quick glances. • Turning off your headlights. 10

  26. 25. If you are driving into sun glare from bright sunlight, you can reduce glare and eyestrain by • Applying dark tint to the windows. • Using sunglasses and the sun visor. • Keeping vehicle interior lights on. • Using the defroster or air conditioner. 10

  27. 26. During the fall, wet leaves on the road can • Make residential streets safer. • Increase traction at low speeds. • Present a serious vision hazard. • Reduce traction and car control. 10

  28. 27. Why can a bridge surface freeze before adjoining road surfaces do? • The roadway has warmth built into it. • The bridge has good shade cover. • Cold air circulates above and below the bridge road surface. • The bridge is exposed to sunlight 10
