70 Multiple choice questions
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)
- driving speeds and making a 90 degree turn to the right or left.
- is the force enacted on a vehicle moving in a curved path that acts OUTWARD away from the center rotation
- happens when a driver over-acceleratess, and the tires sping, the wheels are NOT locked but the driver has lost traction
- occurs just before the drive tires lose traction during ACCELERATION
- is the forward motion that causes a vehicle to straighten from a turn when releasing the steering wheel.
- Pounds per square INCH
- 150 feet
- results when the wheels LOCK and do not TURN while the vehicle is moving. rolling friction and traction are lost.
- is the use of vehicles, barricades, cones or other objects to block traffic flow COMPLETELY.
- less speed and more steering input
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
- 4'oclock position
- remains the same whether driving during the day or night.
- is a turn that gets TIGHTER during the turn much like a circle getting smaller
- is the tendency of a vehicle to turn LESS sharply than the dricer intends.
- is how the vehicle is steered in relation to a curve's apex while maintaining your lane
from loss of both rolling friction and traction. the wheels still
rotate, but they do not control the vehicle's movement.
- occurs during acceleration or braking and causes the transfer of a vehicle's weight from FRONT TO REAR or REAR TO FRONT
- 12 o'clock position
- late apex (more room)
- sharpness of vision
- tire more quickly
- ability to judge DISTANCE and percieve space to determine how far away an object is
- is when the vehicle steered so it PASSES closest to the inside of the curve AFTER reaching the apex
- firm yet relaxed grip
- vehicle dynamics, vehicle handling, and traction control
- optical driving is looking in the desired direction of travel to avoid an obstacle and steering in that direction
- is the center point of ANY CURVE
- is when the vehicle is steered so it is CLOSEST to the INSIDE of the curve BEFORE reaching the apex
- 450 feet
- Decreases centrifugal
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
- the distance from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle. A turn or curve is a portion of a circle.
- decreases. less light narrows the field of vision
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
- is a turn that remains the SAME throughout, getting neither wider nor smaller. EX: 90 degree turn at an intersection.
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
- are the front tires on a front- wheel drive vehicle or rear tires on a rear-wheel drive vehicle
- affects the degree of pitch,roll, and yaw that a vehicle experiences
- 8 o'clock position
the transfer of a vehicle's weight causing an END-FOR-END motion
resulting in the vehicle turning 180 degrees on a horizontal plane
- is an occurrence that causes the rear wheels to follow a TIghter path than the path the front wheels traveled in a turn
- turn the vehicle's front tires in the direction you want to go.
- temporarily BLIND A DRIVER.
- 6 o'clock position
- roll, yaw, pitch
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.
- occurs when TURNING! this shifts the vehicle's weight from side to side.
- ability to see clearly in DARKNESS
- is when the vehicle steered closest to the MIDDLE of the curve
- visual cues that are available during the day, which lowers the ability to judge distance and the speed of oncoming traffic.
- is a turn that gets WIDER during the turn much like a circle getting larger
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
- ability to distinguish COLORS
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
- night vision
- negotiating a turn
- is the result of the friction a vehicle's tires create on the ROAD SURFACE
- early, late, or center apexing techniques.
