7. Intersections

Intersections are a major location for collisions. On your drive test, you will be taken through 8 intersections, where you will be evaluated on "going through", "stopping at" and "starting through" these intersections.


When approaching an intersection, it is important to determine as far ahead as possible whether the intersection you are approaching is controlled or not, so that you can anticipate the behavior of cross traffic and pedestrians, anticipate cars stopping ahead, choose the correct lane for turning, and reduce speed as appropriate.


Once you have entered an intersection so as to pass through it or make a turn do not swerve or stop suddenly because you change your mind as to where you want to go - once you start through, keep going.


When entering "T" intersections, vehicles on the through road have the right of way.


The speed limit is 15 MPH at intersections if during the last 100 feet approaching the intersection, you cannot see the other roadways entering the intersection for a distance of at least 100 feet (blind intersection) and in alleyways .
