5. Driving in Traffic

Driving in Traffic

You should position your vehicle so as to:

  • keep up with the flow of traffic within legal limits
  • avoid other driver?s blind spots
  • keep other vehicles out of your blind spots
  • avoid maintaining a side-by-side position except for short periods of time
  • avoid driving in bunches or packs

  • When entering traffic from a full stop, you should leave a space of 1/2 block in the city and 1 block on highway. When cutting across traffic you need to leave enough room to get completely across. Stopping on a highway while crossing is only safe when there is a center divider wide enough for your vehicle to be completely protected from oncoming traffic.


    It is dangerous to be caught in an intersection or roadway while attempting to cross. Even if the light is green do not start across an intersection if there are cars blocking your way. It is against the law to enter an intersection unless there is space to get completely across. This situation is called gridlock .

    This describes one of the major items that the DMV examiner will be watching for, while you are driving.
