Placeholder Alaska Other

RIGHT WHEEL OFF PAVEMENT

 

  • Stop feeding gas.
  • Maintain firm grip on steering wheel.
  • Brake lightly and intermittently.
  • Maintain car control.
  • Do not attempt to return to pavement until there are no cars in your immediate vicinity.
  • Turn back on to pavement sharply at slow speed.

COASTING PROHIBITED

A driver of a motor vehicle when traveling on a downgrade may not coast with the gears of the vehicle in neutral, or with the clutch disengaged.

TURNING AROUND ON THE HIGHWAY

It is contrary to law to turn around near a curve or hill when the driver cannot see 500 feet or more in each direction.

 

TURNING AROUND IN THE CITY

The safest method is drive around the block. Be alert for signs prohibiting “U” turns.

BACKING

Always look before you back. Avoid opening the door and sticking your head out to see this is dangerous. When backing, you must yield the right- of-way to a vehicle approaching on the highway or intersecting highway. Unless directed by police, fire or construction flag personnel, it is illegal to back on a “controlled access” highway, or on its entrance or exit ramps.
