I got 19 out of 20, but they have one wrong. When merging onto a freeway you should be going the speed limit, or the same pace as traffic only if it is going slower than the speed limit. In their case, both answers could be true, and should be re-worded, otherwise when you read the answer it seems as if they are saying if traffic is going 85 in a 65 zone you should speed too.

I got 15 out of 20. But then again, I live in Massachusetts, who, along with New York, D.C. and N.J. have the worst drivers in the nation.

Hey, I resemble that remark! I learned to drive and got my driver's license in the D.C. area and lived...and drove...there for 30 years. But, you're right, it's challenging driving there.

Oh man... I'm supposed to use my brain when I drive ?!?!

J/k. I got 18 out of 20 correct

However I got 19 out of 20 on the Corporate Logos Quiz.
I got the Starbucks one wrong, which can be explained
by me not being a coffee drinker.

QSis, you are very mis-informed. The worst drivers are down here.
I lived in Jersey for 40 yrs and worked on the Jersey Turnpike at Newark Airport for 7years, and my hand to God, they are worse down here.
Population is smaller, but proportionately worse. They are maniacs. And the accidents are more lethal.

Here in Utah the rule is.....

When traveling on the freeway and a vehicle in the lane next to turns on his blinker to get into your lane you should .......... speed up and block them in the lane they are traveling in AND pretend you dont notice them.

haha

I am sure ever state has their own quirks.
