Default Rider Perception

A buddy just sent me this link.

Very interesting, and I think, helpful.

Note: Although you may argue with a couple of the 'correct' answers, the point is to 'see' what is happening.

Enjoy!

Can't argue too much. I got 20 out of 20. Pretty basic stuff.

LR,

I had an 'issue' with one scenario that had me behind a panel van, with a semi to my left.

I would have accelerated and gotten ahead of the semi, and away from the panel van.

The 'correct' answer was 'slow down.'

Of course, without knowing the velocities of all parties, the 'really correct' answer is a bit difficult.

Man, the ride in to work this morning!

First day of school, and cars parked all over the place around the schools, u-turning SUVs and minivans, cops out the wazoo. It was almost like a video game getting to the office!

I remember that one, and you would then put yourself between two semis with a panel van on your right. Not the best position to be in. Now that doesn't take into account how the traffic is moving, so moving up might have been a good move. It's hard to say with a still picture.

Yeah. I have a tendency to over-analyze, so I think I'll copy off of Longride on this test.


(Pssst! Hey, Longride! What did you get for number twelve?)

On any driving safety test if you see the answer "slow down" it is always the "right" answer.

You've got an excuse...

None of the scenarios are in wet weather!

I was wondering what was wrong, nothing seemed familiar!
