right at this junction?

you. You have to brake hard. You shouldCorrect
Where there are a number of side roads,

A driver does something that upsets you.
There are times when other road users
make a misjudgement or mistake. When

parked cars and they may run out into the
road without looking.

realising the hazard this can create. You will
also need to look well down the road for
- Question 28 of 96

see a vehicle with an amber flashing light.
What could this be?Correct
An amber flashing light on a vehicle
