  • The __________ apexing technique is when the vehicle is steered closest to the middle of the curve.


    An example of a(n) __________ could be a 90-degree turn, such as a turn made at an intersection.

    constant radius.

    The __________ apexing technique increases centrifugal force and can cause loss of control.


    An officer should not

    attempt to brake and steer at the same time (when entering a turn or corner).

    A(n) __________ is a turn that gets wider during the turn much like a circle getting larger.

    increasing radius.

    The __________ apexing technique, in most cases, is the best cornering or turning method.


    __________ is the force that is enacted on a vehicle moving in a curved path that acts outwardly away from the center of rotation.

    centrifugal force.

    The __________ apexing technique allows the most room for driver error.


    The __________ technique is how the vehicle is steered in relation to a curve's apex while maintaining your lane.


    A(n) __________ is the distance from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle.


    __________ (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.

    centripetal force.

    The late apexing technique is when the vehicle is steered so it passes closest to the __________ of the curve after reaching the apex.


    Prior to entering a turn or corner, the officer should

    always brake before turning and then steer into the turn.

    A(n) __________ is a turn that gets tighter during the turn much like a circle getting smaller.

    decreasing radius.

    When a vehicle accelerates, weight transfers to the rear tires,

    affect acceleration and the handling of the vehicle.

    Weight transfer and distribution occur when

    a vehicle changes direction.

    Safely negotiating a tight turn requires __________ speed and __________ steering input.


    The __________ apexing technique is when a vehicle is steered so it is closest to the inside of the curve before reaching the apex.


    The transfer of weight (that occurs when a vehicle turns a corner) can

    force the vehicle out of a driver's travel lane or off the road, and it can cause the vehicle to roll over in extreme conditions.

    Steering has a direct relationship on

    vehicle dynamics, vehicle handling, and traction control.

    The __________ apexing technique decreases centrifugal force, reducing the potential for loss of control.


    A(n) __________ is the center point of any curve.


    A(n) __________ is a turn that remains the same throughout, getting neither wider nor smaller.

    constant radius.
