    I failed my driving test for the third time as i let a bus in front of me. It wasn t a dangerous situation. It was a small roundabout and there was nobody on my right. There was a bus on my left and it was on the verge of going. As its front part was already over the line i waved saying go. He went and that was a major. I KNOW that i had priority but i felt like if i didnt let him go through then i would have caused a dangerous situation as he looked like he was about to set off. The next bit he told me that was also a major was when i was waiting to turn left on the roundabaout and i waited for everybody on my right to turn. I had chances where i could have gone but i didnt want to risk it as it would have been a dangerous situation. Please can somebody explain nicely how these things caused a dangerous situation because i honestly give up.

  • Why new drivers aren't allowed to drive after 12 am in US?

    I'm assuming it have something to do with limited visibility at night, but aren't the roads empty at midnight?

    So im 18 and I dont have my license yet, no reason just havent gotten around to it. One day my mom took me out practicing in the parking lot in the pouring rain and it was just so scary because even though I had my wipers on I couldn't even barely see out the side windows. So I can only imagine what it's like to be driving on the highway in conditions like that. My friend got his license and he really likes driving, I think I would too but I still wonder if I'll even be good at driving. The thought of being in the pouring rain on the highway surrounded by cars while going 60 to 70 mph is just too much for me.

  • If you are going straight on a busy and/or through road, shall you slow down in case someone from a perpendicular street's going to proceed?

    Best answer: SHALL YOU? Maybe SHOULD YOU? In most cases NO. CAN YOU? YES You may have the right of way. Excising that right is permitted. It could result in others saying you are dead right. Your family might get some payout over the incident but YOU are still dead exercising your right of way privileges. WHY would you... show more
    Best answer: SHALL YOU? Maybe

    SHOULD YOU? In most cases NO.

    CAN YOU? YES
    You may have the right of way. Excising that right is permitted. It could result in others saying you are dead right. Your family might get some payout over the incident but YOU are still dead exercising your right of way privileges.

    WHY would you not want to avoid a collision if you can by yielding your right of way?
    Do you seriously think a bus driver would deliberately just proceed because they have the right of way when a truck fails to stop coming from the side and they can see something bad is about to happen?

    It has happened. MILLIONS of dollars will be spent on the victims. If you ask them they would have much preferred the accident had not happened and that their 16 seatmates were still alive enjoying their lives.

    "Now, as a father, I couldn't imagine getting the phone call about my son being in a tragedy like that.?
    Jon Blum U.S. Olympic team LA TIMES

    Fifteen died at the scene, with most aged between 15 and 20 years old, as well as the team coach, assistant coach, team announcer and bus driver. The team's athletic therapist and the lone female Broncos staff, Dayana Brons, died later in the hospital.
    SOURCE same LA TIMES and NY TIMES, ABC,CBS,CNN,NBC,ESPN Reuters, AP..... and darn near every other media source you can think of.
    NO amount of money will ever compensate them back to what it was before the accident.
    It does not matter a busy road or a road with little traffic. If you can do something to avoid the accident you SHOULD do something.
    It has happened on busy roads too. You the driver dying but knowing you had the right of way means what really?

    Which path of travel is the most correct?

    Best answer: Always into the right lane on a right turn then move left when clear if needed. Same on left turns, into the left lane the move right. This is the legal way, even if the other way is more common.

  • When 2 cars arrive at the intersection simultaneously & they both intend to turn left, how can you pick whether you or the other car can go?

    Best answer: The cars are supposed to go at the same time.

    If you don't know how they can do that safely, then you let the other driver go first -- because the other driver probably knows how both cars can go simultaneously, does not know that you don't know, and shouldn't have to wait because you don't know.

    Hello expert drivers. I was pulled over by a cop and got a ticket for turning into that driveway.. according to cop I was from 2 way lane?

    Best answer: You can cross a double yellow line when turning into a driveway. What you did was cross over that spot where there are two double yellows. That is illegal. You would have been better off going up to the next business, turned in there and came back. Or, if your little blue line is an indicator, you turned left from... show more

    I'm a 14 year old boy, and as the title says, I still sit in a 5-point-harness because my mom makes me (In harness mode). I am 4'5" and 65lbs so I am really short for my age (I am the average height of a 9yo). All my friends never see me in it and they don't know I use one. I do go on roadtrips with one of my friends and his mom always agrees to put my carseat in their car and hes the only friend that knows about it (I've known him for a very long time). The seat is VERY comfortable and soft. The harness is even better because it allows be to partially slide back into it and the straps keep me in place (The crotch strap is really tight though). So I'm not complaining but I do kinda want to sit in a normal seat, I assume I should be sitting in a normal seat, right??

    Ok so I’m 24 but I just got my licenses two weeks ago. After 3rd attempt I passed so I’m driving my car but I notice I’m a bad driver. I got into an accident last month when I had a permit but it was minor luckily. I ran two stop signs yesterday. Today I forgot my glasses and it was hard for me to see and I was looking out my mirror to get in the right lane but someone honked at me because I didn’t see them. It was snowing a little and I kept drifting out of my lane. I’m scared but I’m not trying to act like a little btch. I mean what would my bros think if I say I’m scared to drive and I can’t wslk or ride a bike all my life that’s depressing. Idk what 2 do? Will I get better or am I going to get into a dangerous accident one day?

  • How do you come to a stop if you re already breaking but you re sliding? (On ice/snow/rain)?

    Best answer: The fastest you're going to stop on ice/snow/rain in a car with ABS is when you've got the brake pedal mashed to the floor and held there. Letting off the brake pedal at all once the ABS has engaged on snow/ice will simply make it take even longer to stop. You're not going to manually out-modulate the... show more
    Best answer: The fastest you're going to stop on ice/snow/rain in a car with ABS is when you've got the brake pedal mashed to the floor and held there. Letting off the brake pedal at all once the ABS has engaged on snow/ice will simply make it take even longer to stop. You're not going to manually out-modulate the ABS system. There's no "secret trick" here - either you can stop in time or you can't and the car's ABS system, once activated, sorts out everything at each wheel to stop better than a human driver ever really could so you can stop as soon as traction/physics allows.

    If the fastest you can possibly stop (brake pedal to the floor, ABS obviously doing its thing) isn't fast enough to stop in time, then you were simply driving too fast for conditions. At the point where you realize you aren't going to stop in time, you (hopefully) find an exit route where you won't collide with anyone/anything like how you did when turning right when you realized you couldn't stop, but that's an absolute last-resort sort of thing and it's definitely not a habit you want to get into because sometime there might not BE a suitable exit route that doesn't result in a collision and then, well, you're basically screwed it that happens.

  • What are the chances of getting into a car accident in the US?

    Best answer: Age of the driver is also a big factor.

    Seems I recall insurance industry data that suggested that the typical driver is involved in an accident, on average, once every 19 years or so.

    (That means I'm overdue.) :-(
