exit The Other Driver 4 Fundamentals to Survival Review and Final Exam
exit The Other Driver Review Have you already completed all of the basic Other Driver training modules? Module 1: Scan 360 Module 2: Protect Your Space & Check Your Path Module 3: Watch Your Back exit Yes No
exit The Other Driver Review STOP This 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.
exit The 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.
exit The 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.
exit Pre-Test 1 Your 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 Path Watch Your Back Scan 360 Protect Your Space Plan Your Route a b c d e exit
Sorry, 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.
exit Correct, “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.
exit Pre-Test 2 How often should you scan your mirrors? Every 5 to 10 seconds Every half mile Every 4 to 8 seconds Every 15 seconds a b c d
exit Correct. You'll have a chance to review other Scan 360 skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
exit Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Scan 360 portion of the Other Driver Review.
exit Pre-Test 3 You'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 Route Ready Brake ABS Brakes 100% Braking a b c d
exit Correct. You'll have a chance to review other Braking Skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
exit Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Braking Skills portion of the Other Driver Review.
exit Pre-Test 4 You'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 Brake Teach her how to use 30% Braking Teach her The 2 Second Rule Stomp the imaginary brake on your side of the car whenever she tailgates someone a b c d
exit Correct. You'll have a chance to review other Following Distance skills, if you feel you need to, before you take the Final Exam.
exit Sorry, that’s incorrect. You should pay special attention to the Following Distance portion of the Other Driver Review.
exit Pre-Test 5 Which of the following skills can help you avoid being hit from behind by another vehicle? 30% Braking and Scan % Braking, Scan 360 and a safe following distance Safe following distance, Scan 360 and tapping your brakes to warn off tailgaters Scan 360 and tapping your brakes to warn off tailgaters b a d c
exit Correct. Looks like you have a good handle on avoiding our most common collision (being hit from behind by another driver).
exit 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.
exit Additional Information Wherever you see underlined text in this module, you can click on the text for more information. If you feel confident about your knowledge of the underlined topic you can skip it, but you will need to know the topic thoroughly when you get to the Final Exam.
exit The Other Driver Review You're ready to begin a quick review of your past "Other Driver" training.
exit Scan 360 Good 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.
exit Scan 360 As you drive, continuously scan a full circle (360 ) around your vehicle to: Check for potential hazards Monitor of the movements of others around you Stay aware of your escape routes
exit Scan 360 To scan effectively, you need to: Scan 15 seconds ahead, and scan your mirrors every 4 to 8 seconds.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.
exit 15 Seconds Scanning 15 seconds ahead works out to about: 1 block in city traffic 1/2 mile on the highway Need a refresher on how to adjust your mirrors?adjust your mirrors?
exit How to Adjust Your Mirrors Driver’s Side Mirror Place 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 Mirror Lean 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.
exit Escape Routes An "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.
exit Following Distance Basically, 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.hit from behind
exit 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. Currently, our most common collision involves a Johnson & Johnson driver being hit from behind.
exit Following Distance The 2 Second Rule is used as a basis for determining safe following distances. If your car passes the same landmark before you count off two full seconds, slow down until you’ve increased your following distance. As the car ahead of you passes a landmark, such as a telephone pole, start counting. “One one-thousand, two one- thousand…”
exit Following Distance The 2 Second Rule is simply a starting point. Two seconds is a safe following distance when driving conditions are ideal…
exit Following Distance Increase your following distance to at least 4 to 8 seconds: at night in bad weather, poor traffic or road conditions or when you are being tailgatedtailgated
exit Tailgaters If your tailgater hangs on after you've increased your following distance. move to another lane if it's safe to do so if necessary, get off at the next exit or (in city traffic) turn onto a side street at the next intersection Never tap your brakes to "warn off" the tailgater. You will only make the situation more dangerous for both of you.
exit Braking Skills When you slam on the brakes to avoid hitting something in your path, that's 100% Braking (100% of your maximum braking power).
exit Braking Skills For 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 a smooth, controlled stop. Need a little more refresher about 30% Braking?30% Braking
exit How to Use 30% Braking Start 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 light Start early and you'll only need to use about 30% of maximum breaking power to stop.
exit How to Use 30% Braking Remember: 30% Braking is for normal braking situations where you know in advance that you're going to have to stop: red lights stop signs yellow or stale green lights approaching school bus with its stop arm extended
exit Braking Skills Ready 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 a moment's notice. Need a refresher on Ready Brake?Ready Brake
exit Ready Brake As 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, but your brake lights come on to warn drivers behind you you are prepared to brake 100% if you need to
exit Ready 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.
exit Cushion of Safety When you are stopped behind another vehicle, be sure you can clearly see where its rear tires touch the pavement. This ensures you have room to maneuver around the other vehicle and get into your escape route if you need to.
exit Intersections Up to 30% of all traffic accidents occur at intersections within 2 seconds after a light turns green.
exit Intersections If 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 looking left-right-left for red-light runners.
exit Signal 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 turn before beginning any lane change before pulling away from a curb
exit Signal Your Intentions Signal your intention to turn before you reach your turning point.turning point Signal at least 3 seconds in advance in city traffic. Signal at least 5 seconds in advance on the highway.
exit Turning 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.
exit Signal Your Intentions And remember, you have turn signals on the front of your car for a reason. Even if no one is behind you, your signals let drivers in front of you and beside you know what you're doing.
exit You will need to score 70% to pass your final exam and receive your certificate. If you score less than 70% the test will restart. To take the Other Driver Final Exam go to the CD and locate the Resource folder. Double click the JJTODFinalExam.exe file to take the test.
