17/20 first try on the signs because Ive never seen a tractor crossing sign, wasnt thinking when i picked handicapped parking instead of facilities and wasnt looking at the screen for lane merge.

The second portion has alerted me I don't take off pavement escape routes into consideration much. I personally feel they are only necessary during something like brake failure if you use proper following distances and speed levels. I guess anything can happen so it's good to take it into consideration.

It's a well known fact that cagers can and will try to kill you for one reason or another. Cool site.

These are paved but off-lane. Here's a semi-trick question...which is the best lane to ride in? One good answer--the lane with the best escape routes.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

Good exercise. I was first exposed to these at Honda's Advanced Motorcycling classes here in the Atlanta area.

I missed one of the signs but guessed a couple of others as they aren't used here (we use different signs). With a bit more time to examine them, I would have got them.

The term "reverse turns" is completely new to me so I missed it. The sign was shown for so little time, I guessed winding road. Apparently the term is used here but in over 50 years of riding/driving, I've never heard it used.

The railway crossing sign was a guess. Ours is



The roundabout sign was a guess, too. Ours is

I agree reverse turns ahead? Never heard that term hear either and I have a CDL. Always referred to as immediate 90 turns(seen most in far land)19/20 signs 20/20 on views.
Good stuff, going to make my kid take both test.

I got 19/20 on the road signs. Would have got 20/20 except the "school zone" sign looks a lot like our "migrant worker crossing" sign (mother running, dragging child by hand) so I chose "Pedestrian crossing".

You ARE joking about the "migrant worker crossing" sign, right?

I got 20/20 on the Road Sign Test @ medium speed first time through.
Not so good with 17/20 on the Collision Traps Test.

This is a great link and a good one to revisit again and again.
