0806. What is the effect of driving at a high speed during an accident?

  • The driver’s response time is significantly shortened, and safety is enhanced.
  • High speed does not influence the outcome of the accident.
  • It causes greater force of collision and a more severe impact on humans and damage to property.
  • The driver’s response time is lengthened, and safety is thus enhanced.

0807. What is the meaning of the term “driving at a reasonable speed”?

  • Driving at a speed that allows the driver to perform other actions, which are not essential to driving.
  • Driving in a similar speed to that of the other drivers around you.
  • Taking account of road and traffic conditions, in a manner that the driver maintains absolute control of the vehicle and can stop safely at all times.
  • When the driving speed is determined at the driver’s own discretion, and provided that it doesn’t exceed the statutory speed limit.

0808. What problem faces a vehicle driver who is driving at a high speed?

  • His response time is decreased, and thus his driving becomes more dangerous.
  • There is no problem at all: Research work has proven that in high speeds driving is more calm and relaxed.
  • The driver has very little time to properly respond to road events.
  • The driver's response time is significantly lengthened.

0809. What is the relation between the vehicles speed and the vehicle’s stopping distance?

  • The higher the vehicle’s speed is, the shorter is its stopping distance.
  • There is no relation between them. The stopping distance is constant and does not depend on the vehicle’s speed.
  • The slower the vehicle’s speed is, the longer is the braking distance.
  • The higher the vehicle’s speed is, the longer is its stopping distance.

0810. What is a vehicle’s “stopping distance”?

  • The distance covered by the vehicle as of the moment in which the driver reacts to the risk until he steps on the brake pedal.
  • The required distance for stopping at a certain speed.
  • The distance covered by the vehicle from the beginning of braking until the vehicle stops.
  • The distance covered by the vehicle from the time that the driver identifies the risk ahead of him until the vehicle stops.
| «C1» | «C» | «D» | «A» | «1» | «В» |

0811. What are the components of the stopping distance?

  • The sum of the braking distance and the gap from the vehicle in front.
  • The average of the driver’s braking distance and reaction distance.
  • The sum of the reaction time and of the braking distance.
  • The sum of the decision distance and the execution distance of a reasonable driver.
| «C1» | «C» | «D» | «A» | «1» | «В» |

0812. The driver’s reaction distance is the distance covered by the vehicle:

  • From the moment the driver steps on the brake pedal until the vehicle makes a complete stop.
  • From the moment the driver identifies the danger ahead until the moment he begins to react to the danger.
  • From the initial reaction until the end of the vehicle’s braking.
  • From the moment the driver identifies the risk ahead until the vehicle makes a complete stop.
| «C1» | «C» | «D» | «A» | «1» | «В» |

0813. The vehicle’s braking distance is the distance covered by the vehicle:

  • From the moment of identifying the risk until the vehicle starts to brake.
  • From the moment the driver identifies the risk ahead until the vehicle makes a complete stop.
  • From the moment the driver identifies the risk ahead until he starts stepping on the brake pedal.
  • From the moment the driver steps on the brake pedal until the vehicle comes to a complete stop.
| «C1» | «C» | «D» | «A» | «1» | «В» |

0814. Keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front of us is required:

  • Only when the driver is very tired and his responses are not quick enough.
  • In order to drive in the correct lane and at a proper speed.
  • In high speeds only and during stormy weather conditions.
  • In order to prevent a rear-end collision when the vehicle in front stops or slows down.
| «C1» | «C» | «D» | «A» | «1» | «В» |

0815. What is the distance we are required to keep from the vehicle in front of us while driving?

  • Any distance that allows us to see the back wheels of the vehicle in front of us while driving.
  • Any distance that always allows us to see well what’s happening ahead of the vehicle that is driving in front of us.
  • The required statutory distance in which accident may always be prevented, while taking all the relevant elements into consideration.
  • A distance which prevents entry of other vehicles in it.
