70 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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)
  2. stability
  3. driving speeds and making a 90 degree turn to the right or left.
  4. is the force enacted on a vehicle moving in a curved path that acts OUTWARD away from the center rotation
  5. happens when a driver over-acceleratess, and the tires sping, the wheels are NOT locked but the driver has lost traction
  6. occurs just before the drive tires lose traction during ACCELERATION
  7. is the forward motion that causes a vehicle to straighten from a turn when releasing the steering wheel.
  8. Pounds per square INCH
  9. 150 feet
  10. results when the wheels LOCK and do not TURN while the vehicle is moving. rolling friction and traction are lost.
  11. is the use of vehicles, barricades, cones or other objects to block traffic flow COMPLETELY.
  12. traction
  13. less speed and more steering input
  14. 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
  15. 4'oclock position
  16. remains the same whether driving during the day or night.
  17. is a turn that gets TIGHTER during the turn much like a circle getting smaller
  18. is the tendency of a vehicle to turn LESS sharply than the dricer intends.
  19. is how the vehicle is steered in relation to a curve's apex while maintaining your lane
  20. right
  21. results from loss of both rolling friction and traction. the wheels still rotate, but they do not control the vehicle's movement.
  22. thumb
  23. late
  24. glare
  25. occurs during acceleration or braking and causes the transfer of a vehicle's weight from FRONT TO REAR or REAR TO FRONT
  26. left
  27. 12 o'clock position
  28. late apex (more room)
  29. sharpness of vision
  30. tire more quickly
  31. ability to judge DISTANCE and percieve space to determine how far away an object is
  32. is when the vehicle steered so it PASSES closest to the inside of the curve AFTER reaching the apex
  33. firm yet relaxed grip
  34. vehicle dynamics, vehicle handling, and traction control
  35. optical driving is looking in the desired direction of travel to avoid an obstacle and steering in that direction
  36. overdrive
  37. is the center point of ANY CURVE
  38. is when the vehicle is steered so it is CLOSEST to the INSIDE of the curve BEFORE reaching the apex
  39. 450 feet
  40. Decreases centrifugal
  41. remove the foot from the accelator, MAINTAIN steering input but do not apply brakes, and if necessary steer the car to a safe place and stop
  42. the distance from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle. A turn or curve is a portion of a circle.
  43. decreases. less light narrows the field of vision
  44. is an active attempt by an officer, driving an authorized emergency vehicle (emergency equipment activated), to aprehend occupants of a moving vehicle if the offender increases vehicle speed, takes other evasive action, or refuses to stop in an apparent attampt to avoid apprehenssion.
  45. is a turn that remains the SAME throughout, getting neither wider nor smaller. EX: 90 degree turn at an intersection.
  46. remove the foot from the accelerator and/or brake, steer the car where DESIRED (when the front tires have not lost traction), refrain from applying the brakes and if necessary, steer the car to a safe place and stop
  47. are the front tires on a front- wheel drive vehicle or rear tires on a rear-wheel drive vehicle
  48. affects the degree of pitch,roll, and yaw that a vehicle experiences
  49. 8 o'clock position
  50. is the transfer of a vehicle's weight causing an END-FOR-END motion resulting in the vehicle turning 180 degrees on a horizontal plane
  51. is an occurrence that causes the rear wheels to follow a TIghter path than the path the front wheels traveled in a turn
  52. turn the vehicle's front tires in the direction you want to go.
  53. temporarily BLIND A DRIVER.
  54. 6 o'clock position
  55. roll, yaw, pitch
  56. the purpose of this technique is to stop a violator's vehicle by using the police vehicle to apply force to either the rear right or left side of the violator's vehicle to end the pursuit.
  57. occurs when TURNING! this shifts the vehicle's weight from side to side.
  58. ability to see clearly in DARKNESS
  59. rolling
  60. is when the vehicle steered closest to the MIDDLE of the curve
  61. visual cues that are available during the day, which lowers the ability to judge distance and the speed of oncoming traffic.
  62. is a turn that gets WIDER during the turn much like a circle getting larger
  63. is now standard equipment on LATE MODEL vehicles. this type of motor vehicle braking system electronically monitors and controls each of the wheels during braking to keep them from LOCKING
  64. ability to distinguish COLORS
  65. centrifugal
  66. (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
  67. night vision
  68. negotiating a turn
  69. is the result of the friction a vehicle's tires create on the ROAD SURFACE
  70. early, late, or center apexing techniques.
