Solid white lines are used to mark both edges of two-way roads and the right edge of one-way roads. White lines also separate lanes of traffic flowing in the same direction.

Adjust vehicle’s controls (climate controls, mirrors, radio, seat, etc.) before you begin to drive.
#17. A blind spot is the area of the road:
Looking over your shoulder is important because it allows you to check for blind spots.
Blind spots are the areas at the left and right corner of the car that the driver can not see in the rearview mirrors.
#18. A posted speed limit is:
The speed limit is the maximum allowable speed in ideal conditions. Adjust your speed for hills, curves, slippery roadways, limited sight distance, pedestrians, bicyclists, and slow-moving vehicles. These conditions may make the posted speed limit unsafe. By law, when conditions demand it, you must slow down.
#19. The risk of hydroplaning increases:
On wet pavement, your tires may ride on the water rather than the pavement. This is known as hydroplaning. It refers to loss of traction and control. Hydroplaning can happen at any speed over 35 mph. In a severe rainstorm, the tires can lose all contact with the road at 55 mph.
#20. When you approach a roundabout, you should:
Slow down before entering a roundabout. Look to your left as you drive towards the entrance, yield to traffic already in the roundabout, bicyclists, and pedestrians in the crosswalk. Enter when there is a gap in traffic and merge with the other flow of vehicles.
#21. A three-second rule is used for:
Be sure to keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. A good way to measure your safe following distance is to use the three-second rule.
Choose an object near the road ahead, like a sign or telephone pole. As the vehicle ahead of you passes it, count slowly, One thousand one, one thousand two, and one thousand three. If you reach the object before you finish counting, you are too close to the vehicle ahead.
