When you meet an oncoming school bus displaying flashing amber lights, you must slow down to no more than 25 mph and be prepared to stop.

You are most at risk when you are sleep deprived, drive long distances without rest breaks, and take medicine that increases sleepiness.

In order to be the best and safest driver, you must be well rested and alert. Get enough sleep before a trip. Consume caffeinated food or drink to boost short term alertness and schedule a break every 100 miles to take a quick rest or nap or to get some exercise.


#23. You approach this road sign. What does it tell you?

Added lane sign. Traffic from another road will be entering the road. No merging is necessary because a lane has been added.

Because of the size, trucks sometimes need to swing wide to manage their turns.

When they do, truck drivers cannot see cars directly behind or beside them. Give them plenty of room and never try to squeeze around them.
