Adaptive cruise control systems help driver by:
A.) preventing the wheels from locking during hard breaking
B.) retaining traction during hard cornering maneuvers
C.) maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle directly ahead
D.) helping drivers avoid drifting into adjacent lanes

Get the Correct ANSWER

maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle directly ahead

Adaptive Cruise Control uses forward-facing radar to detect a vehicle directly ahead

Electronic stability control systems help drivers by:
A.) helping drivers avoid drifting into adjacent lanes
B.) preventing the wheels from locking during hard breaking
C.) retaining traction during hard cornering maneuvers
D.) maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle directly ahead

Get the Correct ANSWER

retaining traction during hard cornering maneuvers

Electronic Stability Control helps drivers regain traction after their tires lose some or all of their grip on the road surface

Lane departure warning systems help drivers by:
A.) maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle directly ahead
B.) preventing the wheels from locking during hard breaking
C.) helping drivers avoid drifting into adjacent lanes
D.) retaining traction during hard cornering maneuvers

Get the Correct ANSWER

helping drivers avoid drifting into adjacent lanes

Lane Departure Warning System helps drivers remain in their lane, and not veer into adjacent lanes

Blind spot monitoring systems help drivers by
A.) retaining traction during hard cornering maneuvers
B.) helping prevent drivers from moving into a lane already occupied by another nearby vehicle
C.) maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle directly ahead
D.) preventing the wheels from locking during hard breaking

Get the Correct ANSWER

helping prevent drivers from moving into a lane already occupied by another nearby vehicle

Blind Spot Monitoring & Detection uses sensors or cameras to determine when a vehicle is in your traditional "blind spot," and then alerts you to that fact

Anti- lock braking system (ABS)
A.) prevents a vehicle from veering into an adjacent lane
B.) will automatically stop the vehicle before it collides with a vehicle stopped ahead
C.) allow drivers to steer while braking hard
D) Allows the driver to stop in shorter distances

Get the Correct ANSWER

allow drivers to steer while braking hard

True or False: Vehicles equipped with anti-lock braking systems (ABS) can stop in shorter distances than vehicles not equipped with ABS.
A.) True
B.) False

Get the Correct ANSWER

FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

using a tire pressure gauge

The two most important factors in tire performance ability and readiness are:
inflation pressure/tread depth

Forward Collision Avoidance
identifies a potential collision, and then warns the driver of the situation

Parking Assist and Backover Prevention
uses sensors or cameras to allow the driver to detect if a space is large enough to park in or if something is behind them before they start backing

Adaptive Headlights
allows the headlights to turn slightly, in the same direction that the drivers are turning the steering wheel
