Be aware of children riding bikes on the sidewalk, as they may come onto the road unexpectedly.

2. Vehicles are required to be covered by liability insurance:

This protects consumers when they are involved in an accident.

4. To enter a gap in highway traffic:

Explanation
When a vehicle makes a turn, the rear wheels follow a shorter path than the front wheels. The longer the vehicle, the bigger the difference between the paths of the front and rear wheels. Therefore, long trucks often have to swing wide to complete a right turn.

8. You drive defensively when you:

Explanation
You are driving defensively when you are looking down the road for potential hazards. Constantly staring at the road directly in front of your vehicle is dangerous. As you scan ahead, be alert to vehicles around you.
