  2. 2. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? Answer – B Explanation: Often drivers send texts and emails between traffic lights. Such drivers may not notice a light changing to green. Texting even when you are stationary at a red light is against the law. The rationale behind the law is that the driver controls the car even when it’s not moving, and needs to maintain focus even when the vehicle is not moving.

  11. 11. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? It is safe to talk on a hands-free cell phone while driving. A. True B. False Move to the next slide to view the right answer 6/14http://www.mysafetysign.com
  12. 12. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? Answer – B Explanation: There is no sufficient evidence that suggests that talking on hands-free cell phones is safer than talking on hand-held phones. The distraction arises out of the conversation, and not out of holding the phone. Although there is a higher risk associated with dialing a number than with talking, according to some studies, the phone conversations rather than dialing puts a driver in danger of being distracted.

  14. 14. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? Answer – B Explanation: There isn’t enough scientific evidence that proves that GPS systems, whether audio or visual, pose a significant level of risk to drivers. GPS system engineers design systems while carefully considering levels of driver distraction and minimizing the time during which drivers are preoccupied with their GPS. In fact, GPS systems and other vehicle-tailored controls are made in such a way that they can be adjusted in a few seconds.

  20. 20. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? Answer – B Explanation: While traveling with little kids, it is wise to pack snacks and toys to keep them engaged during travel. If kids are old enough to feed themselves, the snacks and games can be kept in the back pockets of the front seats where the kids can reach them. However, more interactive games should be kept to a minimum so that passengers are not harmed in the event of a collision or bump in the road. Alternatively, kids can be told to wait until the next gas station or until the time the driver can pull over. As tempted as drivers may be to check up on their kids, it is not safe for them to take their eyes off the road. Move to the next slide to view the next question 10/14http://www.mysafetysign.com

All of these Move to the next slide to view the right answer 12/14http://www.mysafetysign.com
  24. 24. ARE YOU A DISTRACTED DRIVING ? CAN YOU ANSWER THESE 14 QUESTIONS? Answer – D Explanation: Cognitive involvement of a driver is essential to safe driving. Nevertheless, a driver may fail to recognize a situation that demands a response because his/her attention has wandered from the driving task for some non- compelling reason. When this happens, the driver is typically focused on internal thoughts (i.e. daydreaming, problem solving, etc.) and not focused on the driving task.
