Practice Test Answers
Answer A to the permit practice test TN sample question suggests that whoever started first has the right of way. This is definitely not right and it may create a lot of confusion as it may be hard to judge who started moving first when there is more than one pedestrian involved.
Answer B to the Tennessee practice permit test question suggests that the driver must yield. So far, we don't have any objections to this, but let's look at other answers as well.
Answer C to the TN permit practice test tells us that whoever is slower must yield the right of way. Once again, just like with the first answer, this may create a lot of confusion since the driver and the pedestrian will have to judge each others speed. On top of that, some people would be tempted to run/drive faster simply to gain advantage. This option is not correct.
Answer D to this Tennessee permit test question tells us that the pedestrian must yield. While it may be safe for a pedestrian to do so to avoid a dangerous situation, the law does not require him to yield to vehicles in such situations.
Correct Answer To Tennessee Permit Test Question
The correct answer to this sample question from the Tennessee permit test is B:
"THE DRIVER MUST YIELD WHEN A DRIVER IS TURNING AND A PEDESTRIAN IS CROSSING WITHOUT A TRAFFIC LIGHT”
As a driver, you must take all precautions to avoid collisions with pedestrians. Please remember these simple rules that you need to follow:
Drivers must yield to pedestrians when they are:
- crossing at any intersection without a traffic light (with or without a crosswalk);
- crossing the roadway in marked crosswalks, whether or not at an intersection;
- walking on a sidewalk crossing a driveway or alley; and
- when the driver is turning a corner and pedestrians are crossing with the light.
- Drivers must always yield to any blind pedestrian carrying a white cane or being led by a guide dog.
