  39. am optical driving is looking in the desired direction of travel to avoid an obstacle and steering in that direction
  40. an left
  41. ao thumb
  42. ap is when the vehicle is steered so it is CLOSEST to the INSIDE of the curve BEFORE reaching the apex
  43. aq visual cues that are available during the day, which lowers the ability to judge distance and the speed of oncoming traffic.
  44. ar ability to see clearly in DARKNESS
  45. as is when the vehicle steered closest to the MIDDLE of the curve
  46. at overdrive
  47. au happens when a driver over-acceleratess, and the tires sping, the wheels are NOT locked but the driver has lost traction
  48. av is an occurrence that causes the rear wheels to follow a TIghter path than the path the front wheels traveled in a turn
  49. aw is how the vehicle is steered in relation to a curve's apex while maintaining your lane
  50. ax negotiating a turn
  51. ay night vision
  52. az is the center point of ANY CURVE
  53. ba ability to see above, below and to the sides (a person who is in a stationary vehicle and who has good peripheral vision can see about 180 degrees from side to side)
  54. bb decreases. less light narrows the field of vision
  55. bc are the front tires on a front- wheel drive vehicle or rear tires on a rear-wheel drive vehicle
  56. bd driving speeds and making a 90 degree turn to the right or left.
  57. be is the forward motion that causes a vehicle to straighten from a turn when releasing the steering wheel.
  58. bf late
  59. bg firm yet relaxed grip
  60. bh is the tendency of a vehicle to steer into a SHARPER turn than the driver intends, sometimes with a loss of traction of the rear to the outside
  61. bi results from loss of both rolling friction and traction. the wheels still rotate, but they do not control the vehicle's movement.
  62. bj occurs during acceleration or braking and causes the transfer of a vehicle's weight from FRONT TO REAR or REAR TO FRONT
  63. bk the distance from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle. A turn or curve is a portion of a circle.
  64. bl less speed and more steering input
  65. bm glare
  66. bn occurs when TURNING! this shifts the vehicle's weight from side to side.
  67. bo (tire traction) is the force that is necessary to keep a vehicle moving in a curved path and is directed INWARD toward the center of rotation
  68. bp sharpness of vision
  69. bq affects the degree of pitch,roll, and yaw that a vehicle experiences
  70. br is the tendency of a vehicle to turn LESS sharply than the dricer intends.
