A painted curb means that you must follow special rules to park there. A curb painted with yellow lines mean you may stop only long enough to load to unload.
Painted curbs indicate special parking rules. Blue parking is permitted only for a disabled person who displays a placard or a special license plate for disabled persons or disabled veterans. Disabled people with a placard or special plates may park in special areas for unlimited periods of time, regardless of time restrictions.
Smooth driving allows you to keep more distance between yourself and other drivers. It also helps save gas. During ordinary driving, drive in the lane that has the smoothest flow of traffic. If there are three or more lanes going in one direction, the middle lane, or lanes, are usually the smoothest.
Where there are school buses, there are usually children. Children are likely to do something unexpected, so be prepared. When you come to a school or church bus that is stopped on any roadway to load or unload passengers, you must STOP. By law you must remain stopped until all people are clear of the roadway and the bus is in motion.
When fog closes in completely, and visibility is reduced to near zero, you are advised to carefully pull as far off the road as possible, and stop. Headlights and flashing emergency signals should be used while driving in fog.
Double solid white lines separate two lanes of traffic going in the same direction. They are most commonly seen on interstates. Crossing double solid white lines is prohibited.
Use your high-beam headlights whenever there are no oncoming vehicles, on unfamiliar roads, in construction areas, or where there may be people along the side of your traveling road.
The triangular sign on the back of a slow-moving vehicle means that the vehicle cannot travel faster than 25 mph. Do not get impatient if behind one of these vehicles. The driver will usually try to pull over to the side whenever possible to prevent traffic back-ups.
When you hear the warning signal of an emergency vehicle and if the emergency vehicle is directly behind your vehicle when you are in heavy traffic, keep moving slowly until you can get out of the way.
Expressway driving may cause highway hypnosis, a condition of drowsiness or unawareness induced by monotony, the sound of the wind, the tires on the pavement and the steady hum of the engine. Drivers should try to avoid the condition by shifting their eyes from one area of the roadway to another and focus them upon various objects near and far, left and right.
