Control of Vehicle

Placeholder Alaska Other

More fatal crashes occurred during daylight hours with normal surface, clear weather conditions, and the vehicle in good mechanical condition than under any other condition. The driver is the greatest singular cause of traffic crashes.

You are issued a driver’s license based on the premise that you will obey the laws and keep your vehicle under control at all times.

When you are able to direct and regulate the course and speed of your vehicle and you have the ability to slow or stop when you wish to do so you are exercising control of your motor vehicle.

You must control yourself before you can control a vehicle. Driving with insufficient sleep, anger, or distractions are examples of factors that will impair your ability to safely control a vehicle.

DRIVERS TO EXERCISE DUE CARE

Every driver of a vehicle must exercise care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian, an animal or another vehicle. You must be able to stop if necessary and shall slow down when circumstances require. Some circumstances to watch for are as follows:

  1. Person walking on or along the roadway.
  1. Animals being led, ridden or driven on or along the highway.
  1. A railroad crossing, intersection, bridge, sharp turn, curve, or steep downgrade.
  1. Red reflectors, red flags, or flares. (Burns a bright red.)
  1. Orange flags and signs indicate “high hazard area” (maintenance and construction.)

 

BACKING

Don’t depend on mirrors. Instead, with your left hand at the top of the steering wheel, turn your body and head to the right and look out the rear window. Move the wheel in the direction you want the REAR of your vehicle to go. Back slowly and keep your eyes mov- ing to all sides of your car. Always yield to vehicles or people on the street or sidewalk and be prepared to stop. It is suggested your speed not exceed 5 mph when backing.

OBSTRUCTION TO DRIVER’S VIEW

A person may not drive with more people in the front seat than the seat was designed for or

with objects that interfere with the driver’s control of the vehicle or view.

TV, LAPTOPS, TEXTING, ETC.

Alaska has a law aimed at reducing driver distraction. It is illegal to drive with a visual

screen device operating. Texting while driving is prohibited by the law.
