★ Emergency Situation, Reaction Time, Stopping, Braking Distance -Traffic School, TLSAE Test Answers

Careful driving requires appropriate reaction time, both simple and complex. Braking, and then shifting gears, followed by signaling, and then hitting the horn are examples of ______________ reaction time and are usually required in most driving situations.
A.) Complex
B.) Simple and complex
C.) Simple
D.) All of these answers are correct

Get the Correct ANSWER

Complex

Explanation: Simple reaction time Vs Complex reaction time:
1. Simple reaction time involves one action after receiving one stimulus. Simple reaction time constitutes a person's reaction to a stimulus. Example: In using the reaction time testing device, a person is told to move his foot from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal when he sees a red light.
2. Complex reaction time consists of the driver's following reactions Seeing the situation, understanding the problem, determining appropriate action and beginning the action necessary to avoid hitting someone and to control the car. This involves selecting a specific and correct response from several choices when presented with several different stimuli. The amount of time required for a person to react will be appreciably lengthened by fatigue, alcohol, barbiturates, distractions and drowsiness. Example: Having to brake, shift gears, signal and hit the horn in a correct order.

The reaction time in a laboratory setting is __________ second.
➜ When driving the average reaction time is blank
A.) 1/4
B.) 1/2
C.) 3/4
D.) 1

Get the Correct ANSWER

3/4
Brakes

Explanation: Your car must have two braking systems. Each must be able to stop the car alone. The parking or emergency brake should be strong enough to hold the car on any hill.
NOTE: Reaction times in laboratories are 3/4 of a second. In the driving environment, your reaction time would be closer to 1.5 seconds and the distance you would travel at 50 mph would be 110 feet. To this must be added a REACTION DISTANCE, which is the distance you travel from seeing the danger to putting your foot on the brake pedal. Since 3/4 of a second is the average reaction time, a motorist will travel 11 feet for each 10 MPH of speed before hitting the brake.

In the driving environment, your reaction time would about __________ seconds.
A.) 3
B.) 2.5
C.) 2
D.) 1.5

Get the Correct ANSWER

1.5
