DDS Test Answers
Answer A to this DDS practice test question suggests that an orange triangle marks vehicles that carry radioactive materials. This is not true, there is actually a universal sign that is used to mark everything radioactive. This is how the sign for radioactivity looks.
Answer B to the DDS GA practice test suggests that orange triangles mark vehicles that take wide turns. White there is no universal sign to mark vehicles that make wide turns, most of them would be self-explanatory and will look similar to the sign in this picture.
Answer C to this DDS test question tells us that this sign is used to mark vehicles that travel at speeds slower than normal traffic. So far, this is the most reasonable answer out there.
Answer D to the DMV practice test GA sample question suggests that an orange triangle is used to mark vehicles that make frequent stops, such as vehicles that are employed for making deliveries, public transportation, etc. Just like with answer B, there is no universal DDS-approved traffic sign to mark vehicles that make frequent stops, but lately traffic sign manufacturers are trying to make them all look similar. A typical sign to mark a vehicle that makes frequent stops would look something like this.
Correct Answer To The Georgia DMV Practice Test
The correct answer this Georgia DDS test question is B:
“AN ORANGE TRIANGLE ON THE BACK OF A VEHICLE INDICATES THAT VEHICLE TRAVELS AT SLOWER SPEEDS THAN NORMAL TRAFFIC”
The slow moving vehicle road sign is made with a reflective red outline which is highly visible at night and an orange middle that is visible by day. In most cases, the sign is placed onto vehicles that travel at the speed of 25 mph or less or vehicles that travel significantly slower than the rest of the traffic, such as large trucks or farm equipment. When you see a vehicle with an orange triangle traffic sign, do not honk your horn to pass it. Stay a safe distance back and pass the vehicle when it is safe to do so.
