Missed 1 sign (19/20) and 4 scenarios (16/20). One of the scenarios asks if your escape is to the left, to the right, or straight ahead. The correct answer is .... Oh yeah, thought you were going to get a freebie! NOT! Anyway, I do disagree with the correct answer on that one as it looks to me like if you took the escape route that they suggest, then it appears to be a road crew or something of the sort just ahead in the way. There, you got a clue for a freebie anyway.

Thanks for the link. My daughter was almost hit today by a diver that was not paying attention. I sent this to her and my wife as a reminder that we must always be attentive (car or motorcycle), and it's fun.

I didn't find the scenario section of this useful at all.

Good way to sharpen your skills. Unpredictable in some cases, just like life! Thanks for giving me this info.

Neither did I. Hard to draw any kind of real conclusion as to what you might expect without actually being there.

I found the situational test rather difficult because I recognize nearly all the locations and spent more time trying to pick out familiar sites than watching the road. My score says distracted driving probably killed me.

No, I did alright. On the other hand, most the time I got a wrong answer it was on the ones suggesting a possible out-of-frame obstacle. They would even say in the recap, "being an attentive driver you would probably already be aware of the vehicle" or "the evidence in this scene suggests you should check to your side."

I guess the assumption is that I had shut my eyes for the last 100-yards while driving through a construction zone, so I could check my situational awareness.

I found this game more entertaining. YMMV
