5Day 5 ObjectivesThe students will understand different methods of communicating while drivingThe students will be able to define and understand importance of staggered stop linesThe students will be able to define and understand importance of shared left turn lanesThe students will recognize and understand the characteristics for hills and curvesRelated SOL: DE.4, DE.5, DE.6, DE.7, and DE.12
10Staggered StopsImproves visibility and creates space for a truck making a left turn.Stop your vehicle (RED car) behind the white(black) stop barSelect Lane Position 3 to give the truck as much space as possible
12Shared Left Turn Lane- Turn from Moving Traffic Check for vehicles already stopped or if anyone will be entering laneCheck traffic to rear and signal intention to turn left
13Shared Left Turn Lane- Turn from Moving Traffic Brake to a stop if a gap is not availableShould not drive more than 200 feet in a shared left lane.
14Shared Left Turn Lane- Enter Street From a Driveway Signal left turn and stop at edge of roadwayCheck for driver on opposite side of roadway waiting to turn left.Check for safe gap in traffic to the left.
15Shared Left Turn Lane- Enter Street From a Driveway If clear in both directions, enter nearest through lane.
16Shared Left Turn Lane- Enter Street From a Driveway If there is a gap to the left, but not the right, turn into the shared left turn lane and stop.
17Shared Left Turn Lane- Enter Street From a Driveway Signal for a right turn.When traffic is clear to the right, accelerate and steer into nearest traffic lane.
19Techniques for Hills and Curves Searching Into a CurveLook ahead and through the curveLook for problems that may affect your path of travel and line of sightApex: the point at which your car is closest to the inside edge of the usable roadwayTrail Braking: Releasing brake pressure while you steer.
20Things to ask yourself when driving through curves Does the roadway curve left or right?Can the exit of the curve be seen ahead?What is the sharpness of the curve?What is the lane width, shoulder conditions, posted speed, or traffic volume?Is the curve on grade, up or down hill?Is the field of view restricted?Can an apex point for exiting the curve be determined?Do not write this slide

23Reduce Speed WhenApproaching and crossing intersections where cross traffic is not required to stop by traffic control devicesApproaching and crossing railroad grade crossingsApproaching and going around curves or hillsTraveling on narrow or winding roadsApproaching pedestrians or other trafficEncountering bad weather or dangerous highway conditions
24Speed in a Curve You should reduce speed going into a curve Squeeze the brake on entry and trail off the brake until the apex or exit point is determinedOnce apex is reached, use light acceleration to pull the car out of the curve through the exit
25Speed in a CurveSpeed going through a curve will determine how much traction your car will have.
26Road Position in a Curve Under-steer: Traction loss into a curve.Over-steer: Traction loss on the exit of a curve.
27Line of Sight Over a Hill Determine the Best Line of Sight and Path of TravelLane position 3 provides the best space cushionLine of Sight is Restricted Up and Down Hill
28Traveling DownhillWhen traveling downhill check your vehicle’s speed and rearview mirror every five secondsDo not ride the brake.If necessary, shift to a lower gear.
