Driving Test Answers

For those of you who actually care, here are the answers to our mini-drivers test, according to the Georgia Department of Driver Services:

1) If a school bus is stopped in front of you on a 2-lane highway, with a solid yellow line is it legal to pass?

Answer: Passing is prohibited on two-lane roads in areas marked by a solid yellow line on the right of the center line, or a “Do Not Pass” sign, or double yellow lines.

2) what if it’s a city bus?

Answer: Passing is prohibited on two-lane roads in areas marked by a solid yellow line on the right of the center line, or a “Do Not Pass” sign, or double yellow lines.

3) If the light up ahead is flashing yellow should you stop?

Answer: A flashing yellow light means you must slow down and exercise caution before proceeding through the intersection (translation: don’t stop! Only those with a flashing red light must stop and treat it like a stop sign).

4) Can you turn right on red if the light is showing a red arrow?

Answer: No

5) What if there’s just a sign that says No Turn On Red?

Answer: Unless a sign posted at that intersection prohibits doing so, it is permissible to make a “right turn on red” at an intersection controlled by a traffic control light.

6) If you come to a 4-way stop sign at the exact same time as another driver, who can legally go first?

Answer: If two vehicles reach the intersection at approximately the same time, yield to any vehicles on your right.

 

Regarding school buses, this is also important to keep in mind: Once the flashing lights have turned red and the stop signs have extended from the side of the bus, it is unlawful for any vehicle to pass the stopped school bus while it is loading or unloading passengers. On a highway divided by a median, cars traveling on the opposite side from the stopped school bus are not required to stop.

I hope this little exercise will help all of you who are transportationally-challenged. See you on the road!
