Traffic Signs on Your DMV test

Not all US traffic signs will appear on your written knowledge test, or even in your driver handbook. You are still responsible for knowing all signs and how to react to them. When taking the road test, your exterminator may ask you if you know the meaning of a traffic sign you pass, if he or she believes that you do not know the answer. So you better be well prepared.

School Bus Stop Ahead

This fluorescent yellow-green School Bus Stop Ahead is a fairly new sign. It is important to know that it is not used everywhere, only where it is most needed. You should not expect to see the sign in urban areas with low speed limits or where a stopped school bus can be easily seen from a distance.

Instead, expect to see the sign where a stopped school bus may be hidden behind a curve or not visible because of buildings and outside city limits where speed limits are higher.

What You Should Do

Anytime children may be present, you should adjust your speed and be alert. Watch for children and a stopped school bus ahead.

Slow down and stop, when necessary.

Remember, if school bus is stopped for loading or unloading children on your side of the roadway ahead, you must always come to a full stop behind the bus. You must remain stopped until the school bus starts moving again, or until red lights stop flashing and the stop arm is withdrawn.

Answer to DMV Question

Correct answer is C (Be prepared to slow down and stop, if necessary).

When Can You Drive Faster Than the Speed Limit?

Driving faster than the speed limit

 

In general, it does not matter what your reasons are. Driving faster than the posted speed limit is illegal in all states.

The posted speed limit is always the maximum speed permitted on that particular road. Sometimes you must drive slower than the posted speed limit. You may never drive faster than what is reasonable and prudent under current conditions. Reduce speed when weather is bad, or when there are potential hazards on the road.

In Minnesota, the speed limit on two-lane highways with a posted speed limit of 55 mph or higher is increased by 10 mph when the driver is lawfully passing another vehicle in the same direction.

 

What is the Basic Speed Law?

Reduce speed in bad weather

 

A basic speed law says that you must travel at a speed that is consistent with existing driving conditions. These include weather, traffic, and road conditions.

Or put in other words: No person shall drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions.

Such a basic speed law is used in all 50 states.

Remember, it does not always matter what the speed limit sign says.

In bad weather, you must reduce speed. If there are potential hazards on the road, you must also drive slower than the posted speed limit.
