Vulnerable road users

  1. All are correct. Explanation: Disabled buggies, with their small wheels, need dropped kerbs to get on and off the pavement. If vehicles are parked on the pavement and there are no ac- cess points to get on or off the pavement for the buggies, then the rider is unable to continue the journey without risk of turning the buggy over if they try to get off the kerb. Inconsiderate parking can force people into the road. The breakup of the surface can cause trip hazards for anyone, especially the partially-sighted and the blind.

General driving knowledge

  1. All are correct. Explanation: The Highway Code states that a green traffic light means, ‘go if the way is clear’. Therefore you must be prepared to stop at the green light if an emergency vehicle could be trying to cross your path. A red light to an emergency vehicle, on an emergency, means ‘Give Way’, not ‘STOP’.
  2. The correct answer is C. Explanation: Zebra and Pelican crossings have flashing amber lights. Railings are placed wherever a safety issue exists at any crossing.
  3. The correct answers are B & C. Explanation: If you consider S.L.O.W. to mean Speed Low Observe Warning then you will pay more attention to the warning sign and reduce speed according to its severity. Where there is no warning sign, there are often concealed entrances ahead.
  4. All are correct. Explanation: Lighting up time is from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise. The 100 metre rule applies for headlights and fog lights. Raining is classed as the wipers being on a continual wipe.
