District of Columbia Managing Traffic Test

Often after getting their drivers license, people may not understand the importance of effectively communicating when they’re behind the wheel. By keeping your hands visible and using hand signals, drivers are able to communicate to others on the road what to expect from your vehicle which keeps everyone safer. Another critical element of managing the roadways is to remain cognizant of the condition of roadways at all times. What does this mean? It means drivers must pay attention to weather conditions, road conditions, and traffic patterns. By constantly scanning the road ahead, you can quickly formulate a plan to avoid danger. Last but not last, drivers need to make it a point to yield to pedestrians and cyclists.
