1. When you approach a railroad crossing without flashing warning signals or crossing gates, you should:

Explanation
Always be prepared to yield to any oncoming trains before crossing railroad tracks, particularly if there are no lights or gates controlling the crossing. Never start to cross the tracks until there is room for your entire vehicle on the other side of the tracks. Due to the risk of a vehicle stalling, it is not wise to shift gears when crossing railroad tracks.

2. The law gives ____ the right-of-way at intersections.

Explanation
The law does not give anyone the right-of-way at intersections; it only says who must yield. Even when one driver is legally required to yield the right-of-way, if they fail to do so, other drivers are still required to stop or yield as necessary to avoid a crash.

Explanation
If a vehicle using high beams comes toward you, flash your high beams quickly a few times. If the driver does not dim their lights, look toward the right side of the road. This will keep you from being blinded by the other vehicle’s headlights.

4. Drivers may not pass from either side of a ____ centerline.

6. A red flashing traffic light has the same meaning as a:

Explanation
A red flashing traffic signal has the same meaning as a stop sign. When approaching a red flashing signal, come to a complete stop and proceed when it is safe to do so. A stop sign may sometimes also be posted where this signal is located.
