Parking on curbs or hills. If you are parked downhill and there is a curb on the passenger side, which way to you turn your wheels?

The 2 Second Rule – This is the distance you are required to keep between you and the car in front. When the car in front of you passes a fixed marker in the road you begin to count from the back of his car to the front of yours……one thousand one…one thousand two. (this ticket is called following too closely, not the same as tailgating-could also be called careless driving)

Tailgating- Reduce speed, Ride to right, Encourage the pass.

The Point System – For example, how many points will you get if you get a ticket for going 16 miles over the speed limit? 4 points. 15 miles over the speed limit is 3 points. There are only 3, 4, and 6 points. (If you get 12 points in a year, it’s a 30 day suspension.)

Road Markings: There are two colors of road markings yellow and white. Yellow separates traffic moving in opposite directions. White separates traffic moving in the same directions. There are two types of road markings, solid and broken. The broken line is like free flow. You can move in between the lanes. If it is a yellow broken line… can pass. If it is a white broken line, you can change lanes. The solid line in like a brick wall. You can not freely flow. (white or yellow)

Seat belts – everyone in the car under 18 must be buckled up. Everyone in the front seat is required to buckle up. If the passenger is under 18 the driver gets the ticket. If the passenger is over 18, the passenger gets the ticket. (Seatbelt ticket is not a moving violations) which means there are no points attached 4 WAY STOP SIGN-he who gets there first goes first. If two cars get there at the same time, the car to the left gives up their right to go to the person to the right.

HOV – High Occupancy Vehicle. This is the carpool lane. Two or more people during specific times of the day. (a ticket in the hov lane for not having a carpool is not a moving violation) Probably not qoing to be a questions since the counties have made those lanes express lanes.
