#1. This lane control signal (a steady yellow X) means:

Sometimes it is desirable to have traffic in a lane in one direction at certain times and the opposite direction at other times. Lane control signals are used to control the direction of traffic movement in the lane. The signal is placed over the traffic lane it controls. The yellow X means that you must move out of that lane of traffic because it is going to be used for traffic moving in the opposite direction. When the yellow X signal is flashing you may use that lane only when preparing to turn left.


#2. You are in the right-hand lane and want to turn right at an intersection. You see this sign at the corner. What should you do?

No right turn. You cannot make a right turn at this intersection. Remember, regulatory signs with a red circle with a red slash over a symbol prohibit certain actions.


#3. This Hawaii road sign means:

Slippery when wet. In wet weather, drive slowly. Do not speed up or brake hard. Make sharp turns at a very slow speed. This sign is often located near bridges and overpasses.


#4. Certain highway signs and markings require that you must obey the indicated instruction. Such signs are known as:

Regulatory signs tell yo what yo must do or must NOT do. Failure to comply with regulatory signs or devices is subject to penalty.


#5. This road sign means:

Pedestrian crossing. This sign tells you that you are near an area where a large number of pedestrians cross the street. Slow down and watch for people crossing the street on foot. Pedestrians in crosswalks must be given the right-of-way at all times. They can be injured even in minor accidents.


#6. Where can you expect to see this sign?

Pass with care signs are rectangular, black and white signs indicating the end of a no-passing zone. When you have passed this sign, you are again allowed to pass other vehicles with care.


#7. What does this sign mean?

Lane use control signs are rectangular, black and white signs indicating that turning movements are required or the unusual turning movements are permitted from specific lanes at an intersection. You must move your vehicle only in the direction indicated for your traffic lane.


#8. Which traffic light has the same meaning as a stop sign?

A red flashing signal has the same meaning as a stop sign. A stop sign will also be posted where this signal is located.

You must always bring your vehicle to a complete stop and yield to approaching traffic before proceeding.


#9. What does this sign mean?

Divided highway ahead (divided highway begins). You are getting close to the place where two-way traffic will be divided by a center strip. Each roadway is one-way. Stay to the right.


#10. Left turns against a solid red light are:

A steady red light means that you must stop. After stopping, you may turn right except when a sign prohibits such movement. You must yield to all pedestrians and all vehicles when making such a turn. After stopping you may also turn left on a red light from a one-way street into a one-way street where traffic is moving to the left, except when a sign prohibits such movement.

See result!
