Never assume other drivers will give you the right-of-way. Yield your right-of-way whenever it helps prevent collisions.

To stay aware of hazards, you should scan the road and check your rearview mirrors every two to five seconds. Constantly staring at just the road ahead of you is dangerous. If you must drive in foggy conditions, you should use your low beam headlights, not your high beam headlights.

8. Which lane must you be in before making a left turn from a one-way street?

Explanation
When making any turn, turn from the lane closest to the direction you wish to travel into the first available legal lane. If you are making a left turn from a one-way street, this means that you would make the turn from the lane nearest to the left curb.
