Q: The written drivers exam

What is with the written drivers test in this country?  I have been taking some practice exams online prior to going for the real thing.  I have managed to deal rather well with the Chinglish translation, but some of the things advocated in the exam are just plain stupid and dangerous.  Example: When two cars are heading towards each other on a narrow downhill road which car should go first?  The answer is the car going uphill....try this on a wet or icy downhill road and hope the laws of physics are suspended for the day I guess. crying

How many folks on here passed this exam and how many times did you take it before passing is the question.

'Hill' rule is written for driving in normal (dry) occasions. Which car would easier start to drive again, if both cars come to a complete stop? Down-hill car, so it must stop (first), and let up-hill car continue with the ride without the stop.angel

 

If 'hill road' is frozen, only birds can 'drive'…...I don't drive (anything) in China.

I think the theory is pretty much like the rest of the world. Giving way to the vehicle going uphill is the norm. The question didn't say it was raining, and if it was raining and you are going downhill faster than you can stop to safeguard the other traffic... well then you're just driving like a Chinese aren't you?

GOOG on 'hill driving':

 

http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/129895

 

 

Posters (I think) on the tread are 'snow-dens'(yanks). One of the A is:

"Whether a car is going uphill or downhill does not matter in deciding right of way, accoring to the rules of the road -- at least in the U.S.

If you obey all road signs and signals, plus the rule that the vehicle on the right has right of way at a 4-way stop when more than one arrives at the intersection together, then right of way is already determined. Which way the road slopes is irrelevant.
Comments
Your right, you answers do apply to the US, but not in the UK."

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
