Explain three ways drivers and vehicle owners can demonstrate proof of financial responsibility
Describe three ways in which drivers and vehicle owners can demonstrate proof of financial responsibility.
1. Maintain/possess automobile liability-insurance coverage
2. deposit money in the amount required by the state
3. deposit bonds or other securities sufficient to meet the state's requirements ( title to property, stock certificate)

List four principles of right-of-way.
1. The purpose is to prevent conflicts resulting from one driver failing to yield to another
2. The right-of-way is always given; it's not something a highway users should take for granted
3. To be granted the right-of-way, driver must be driving in lawful manner. In other words, a driver cannot take the right-of-way by breaking another law
4. A driver has not yielded the right-of-way if they force other highway users to slow or wait.
However, though there may be no legal requirement to yield to a driver engaging in an illegal driving maneuver, all drivers have a responsibility to yield the right-of-way in order to prevent a collission. A driver has not yielded the right of way if he or she forces other road users to change their speed, direction, and/or position. Regardless of which driver should yield, based on the rules of the road, whoever has the last clear chance to avoid a collision is obligated to do so.

Explain the procedure for responding to an approaching emergency vehicle
1. When an emergency vehicle approaches all other drivers should drive to a position parallel to or as close as possible to the right hand edge of the road, clear of an intersection and should stop and remain in position until the vehicle has passed.
2. The driver should safely change lanes depending on which lane the emergency vehicle is approaching. You should also reduce your speed to at least 20 mph below the limit if changing lanes is not safe and be sure to warn drivers behind you.

Explain the difference(s) between aggressive driving and road rage.
1. Aggressive driving is generally defined as behaviors that indicate an aggressive mindset but are not necessarily directed toward another specific driver. Examples include speeding, running red lights, changing lanes suddenly or without signaling/following too closely.
2. Road rage typically is defined as behaviors that are directed at specific vehicles or occupants with malicious intent. Examples include ramming, side swiping, throwing objects, verbal attacks, battery, rude or obscene gestures, and discharging firearms, etc.

Explain the conditions under which a driver can be charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
Describe the conditions under which a driver can be charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
1. When a driver is stopped for cause and their BAC tests show BAC is at or above .08% they can be charged with DWI or DUI.
When a driver operating a motor vehicle on a public road with a blood alcohol concentration BAC at or above the legal limit such as 0.05% or 0.08%, depending on the state, that person can be charged with driving while intoxicated DWI or driving under the influence( DUI).
2. Courts generally accept tests on blood, breath or urine to determine BAC and alternately results of Standard Field Sobriety Tests.
If a drivers BAC tests at or above .08%, that person can be charged with DWI or DUI. Courts except tests of blood, breath or urine to determine the BAC. The results of standardized Field sobriety tests may also be excepted as evidence. A driver could also be charged at any BAC level if they are found to exhibit loss of normal use of mental/ physical faculties (as a result of alcohol or other drugs).
