Working for a company that stresses safety means that you not only start to see life from a different angle, but it also means that everyone has to take tests that focus on safety…all year long. I’m not saying this is a bad thing, but sometimes it is inconvenient especially when I have deadlines to meet.
The last time I took the test, I guess my funny bone was sensitive because I kept laughing throughout the whole thing.
Failure To Yield And Escape Routes Test
There are quite a few questions on each test, but here are few of the best:
I wish I could make comments on the test because I would have typed, “It feels like an emergency the moment the CHANGE OIL light pops on in that wicked orange color!!!”
Exercise! There’s not enough room to do much exercising in my car, but I sure see people exercise their middle finger to anyone that happens to be in their path.
The makers of this test may think that “never yield to a motorist already traveling in a lane you want to enter” is a silly choice, however, if you ever drive in Richmond, Virginia, you will see that it is REALITY! Motorist zip from the merge lane into highway traffic without even looking or slowing down. It drives me crazy!
What’s wrong with drifting? LOL
It is only common sense to yield to bigger vehicles! I think the automobiles that are the most vulnerable are the new ones because they don’t want to get into a wreck! So don’t pick on the little guy…pick on the newbie!
The vast majority of people do NOT signal and DO see it as optional. Besides, it is hard to signal when you are switching from lane to lane going faster than the speed of light. (rolling my eyes)
I passed all three tests with 100 percent because I know all the right answers. Whether I do all the right things while driving is another story, but all in all I’m a rather safe and considerate driver. I wonder if my bumper sticker has anything to do with it?
