Headed either uphill or downhill and there is no curb, turn the wheels to the right so the car will roll away from the center of the road if the brakes fail.

This way, if your vehicle starts to roll downhill, it will roll away from traffic. However, when headed uphill at a curb, you should turn the front wheels in the opposite direction, away from the curb and towards the road. Then, let your vehicle roll backwards until the back of your front wheel touches the curb. The curb will stop your car from rolling into traffic.

#12. What is a suitable restraint system for a child under the age of one year?
For the best possible protection, place infants in the back seat of your vehicle in rear-facing child safety seats. Rear-facing seats are the safest way to transport an infant and should be used until the child no longer meets the height or weight limit of the particular seat.

Leave extra room for vehicles required to come to a stop at railroad crossings, including transit buses, school buses, and vehicles carrying hazardous materials.

#22. When can a motorcycle operator use a complete traffic lane?
