3The Other Driver Review STOPThis training module is not intended or recommended for learners who have not yet completed basic "Other Driver" training.Please do not take this review training until you have earned certificates of completion for Modules 1, 2 and 3.
4The Other Driver Review Good, then you're ready for this review module.This module provides a succinct review of the skills used to avoid collisions caused by other drivers.But the emphasis in this program is on testing what you know based on all of the Other Driver training you've completed.
5The Other Driver Pre-Test This 5-question quiz will help you determine which areas of the Other Driver Review you need to pay special attention to.
6Pre-Test 1Your previous Other Driver training covered "The 4 Fundamentals" to avoiding Other Driver collisions. Which of the following is NOT one of The 4 Fundamentals:Check Your PathWatch Your BackScan 360Protect Your SpacePlan Your Routeabcdeexit
7Sorry, but this IS one of the Other Driver fundamentals. By the way, the Other Driver Review is not arranged according to The 4 Fundamentals. But it does cover all the basic skills you've learned in your previous Other Driver training.
8Correct, “Plan Your Route” is NOT an Other Driver fundamental. This module is not arranged according to The 4 Fundamentals. If you skipped one of the previous training modules on the fundamentals, now is the time to go back and complete it before continuing this review.
9Pre-Test 2 How often should you scan your mirrors? Every 5 to 10 secondsEvery half mileEvery 4 to 8 secondsEvery 15 secondsabcd
10Correct.You'll have a chance to review other Scan 360 skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
11Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Scan 360 portion of the Other Driver Review.
12Pre-Test 3You're driving along at 40 mph when another car pulls directly into your path and stops. You need to act quickly to avoid an accident. Which of the following will NOT be useful at this point?Escape RouteReady BrakeABS Brakes100% Brakingabcd
13Correct.You'll have a chance to review other Braking Skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
14Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Braking Skills portion of the Other Driver Review.
15Pre-Test 4You're coaching a teenage driver. She has a tendency to tailgate other cars. How can you help her break this dangerous habit?Teach her how to use Ready BrakeTeach her how to use 30% BrakingTeach her The 2 Second RuleStomp the imaginary brake on your side of the car whenever she tailgates someoneabcd
16Correct.You'll have a chance to review other Following Distance skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
17Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Following Distance portion of the Other Driver Review.
18Pre-Test 5Which of the following skills can help you avoid being hit from behind by another vehicle?30% Braking and Scan 36030% Braking, Scan 360 and a safe following distanceSafe following distance, Scan 360 and tapping your brakes to warn off tailgatersScan 360 and tapping your brakes to warn off tailgatersabcd
19Correct.Looks like you have a good handle on avoiding our most common collision (being hit from behind by another driver).
20Sorry, that’s incorrect Sorry, that’s incorrect. Tapping your brakes to "warn off" a tailgater can make a bad situation worse. The other 3 answers to this question were all correct.You should probably take your time going through the Other Driver Review, as "hit from behind" is our most common collision.

22The Other Driver Review You're ready to begin a quick review of your past "Other Driver" training.
23Scan 360Good scanning skills help you spot potential hazards early, giving you more time to react to them safely.One or two extra seconds can make the difference between having or avoiding an accident.
24Scan 360As you drive, continuously scan a full circle (360) around your vehicle to:Check for potential hazardsMonitor of the movements of others around youStay aware of your escape routes
25Scan 360 To scan effectively, you need to: Scan 15 seconds ahead, and scan your mirrors every 4 to 8 seconds.Scan your mirrors every 4 to 8 seconds.Keep scanning even when you're stopped in traffic.
2615 Seconds Scanning 15 seconds ahead works out to about: 1 block in city traffic1/2 mile on the highwayNeed a refresher on howto adjust your mirrors?
27How to Adjust Your Mirrors Driver’s Side MirrorPlace the left side of your face against the driver side window and adjust the mirror so that you can barely see the left side of your car.Passenger’s Side MirrorLean as close to the center of the front seats as possible and adjust the mirror so you can barely see the right side of your car.
28Escape RoutesAn "escape route" is an open lane of traffic that you can safely move into to avoid a collision.In an emergency, your escape route may even be an otherwise "off limits" lane of traffic, such as the shoulder of the road.
29Following DistanceBasically, a "safe" following distance is one that gives you enough space (and time) to avoid rear-ending the car ahead of you if it stops suddenly.It can also protect you from being hit from behind by another driver.
30Hit From BehindCurrently, our most common collision involves a Johnson & Johnson driver being hit from behind.When you maintain a safe following distance, you're giving yourself and the driver behind you more time to react and stop safely in an emergency.
31“One one-thousand, two one- thousand…” Following DistanceThe 2 Second Rule is used as a basis for determining safe following distances.As the car ahead of you passes a landmark, such as a telephone pole, start counting.“One one-thousand, two one- thousand…”If your car passes the same landmark before you count off two full seconds, slow down until you’ve increased your following distance.
32Following Distance The 2 Second Rule is simply a starting point. Two seconds is a safefollowing distance whendriving conditions are ideal…
33Following DistanceIncrease your following distance to at least 4 to 8 seconds:in bad weather,poor traffic orroad conditionsor when you are being tailgatedat night
34TailgatersIf your tailgater hangs on after you've increased your following distance.move to another lane if it's safe to do soif necessary, get off at the next exit or (in city traffic) turn onto a side street at the next intersectionNever tap your brakes to "warn off" the tailgater. You will only make the situation more dangerous for both of you.
35Braking SkillsWhen you slam on the brakes to avoid hitting something in your path, that's 100% Braking (100% of your maximum braking power).
36Braking SkillsFor all normal braking situations, such as approaching a stop sign, you should only have to use about 30% of maximum braking power to bring your car to asmooth, controlled stop.Need a little more refresherabout 30% Braking?
37How to Use 30% BrakingStart braking early — as soon as you realize you're going to need to come to a stop.for example, start braking as soon as you see you're coming up to a yellow lightStart early and you'll onlyneed to use about 30% ofmaximum breaking powerto stop.
38How to Use 30% BrakingRemember: 30% Braking is for normal braking situations where you know in advance that you're going to have to stop:red lightsstop signsyellow or stalegreen lightsapproaching schoolbus with its stoparm extended
39Braking SkillsReady Brake is used when you see a potential hazard ahead. You may not need to brake at all unless the hazard materializes, but you want to be prepared to brake fully on amoment's notice.Need a refresheron Ready Brake?
40Ready BrakeAs soon as you recognize a potential hazard ahead, depress the pedal just enough to take the slack out of the system.Done properly, your brakes will not actually engage, butyour brake lights come on to warn drivers behind youyou are prepared to brake 100% if you need to
41Ready Brake Examples of Ready Brake situations You see a group of children playing by the side of the road ahead.You see a car backing into the roadway ahead and you aren't sure the driver sees you coming.You're about to drive over the crest of a steep hill.
42Cushion of SafetyWhen you are stopped behind another vehicle, be sure you can clearly see where its rear tires touch the pavement.This ensures you haveroom to maneuveraround the other vehicleand get into your escaperoute if you need to.
43IntersectionsUp to 30% of all traffic accidents occur at intersections within 2 seconds after a light turns green.
44IntersectionsIf you're first in line when a traffic light turns green:Count off 2 to 3 seconds before you move your foot to the accelerator.Spend those seconds lookingleft-right-left for red-lightrunners.
45Signal Your Intentions Your turn signals let other drivers know what you're doing, which makes the road just a little safer for them and for you.Use your signals:before you start a turnbefore beginning any lane changebefore pulling away from a curb
46Signal Your Intentions Signal your intention to turn before you reach your turning point.Signal at least 3 seconds in advance incity traffic.Signal at least 5 secondsin advance on the highway.
47Turning Point For example: If you're going turn at a city intersection, begin signaling your turn about 3 seconds before you reach the intersection (even if the light is red and you'll be waiting in line).If you're turning off the highway, start signaling about 5 seconds before you reach your exit.
48Signal Your Intentions And remember, you have turn signals on the front of your car for a reason.Even if no one isbehind you, yoursignals let drivers infront of you andbeside you knowwhat you're doing.
