D.) all of the above

Get the Correct ANSWER

know just where you will get on and get off.

EXPLANATION: Expressway Safety Reminders
Plan your trip. Know just where you will get on and get off.
Drive in the right lane and pass on the left. If there are three lanes, use the right lane for lower speed driving, the left for passing. If you stay in the right lane, watch for cars entering the expressway. Adjust your speed or move into the center lane so they can enter safely.
Never stop on the pavement, shoulder, or connecting ramp of an expressway except in an emergency. If your vehicle breaks down, it may be parked on the side of the expressway (completely off the pavement) for no more than six hours. Raise your hood and tie a white cloth to your antenna or left door handle to show you need help.
Never back up on an expressway entrance ramp or exit ramp. The only exception to this would be if you are trying to enter an expressway through an exit. In this case, you would see a “WRONG WAY” or “DO NOT ENTER” sign. Then you must back up or turn around.
Do not cross, drive on or park on the median strip.
Do not follow too closely. Rear end collisions are the greatest danger on expressways. Always leave room for emergency stops.
Stop driving when you feel tired. On long trips the hum of the engine and your lack of movement can make you feel sleepy. Stop for a cup of coffee, a short walk, or a nap. Do not risk falling asleep at the wheel.
