I missed it completely.  I failed the road sign test I guess.

^23/25. I said flashing green was opposing traffic was red, but I only docked myself a half point because I was kinda sorta right. And I said children crosswalk was children on road, that was dumb, I should've got that.

 

I admit I didn't know the directionality of the diagonal yellow lines. I thought it just meant "don't hit this thing" and didn't see the sign was upside down.

 

Anyway, back to my busted windshield, we paid $200 to have it replaced, ICBC paid the rest. It was embarrassing as Speedy had to call ICBC and confirm the car was in good condition because the windshield costs more than the car. They said it's extremely rare for a trucking company to compensate for damage.

This question lists number A as the correct answer but number B is also the correct answer because on this steady arrow pointing  left that's the only way you can legally turn. You cant turn right nor can you go straight

That's nothing.  I sold a car to a guy once, for $25.  The agent at the insurance place said "you can't do that, you have to put the real price paid".  We walked her outside to show her.  Went back in, no problem, she said that's a $25 car.

I think at this intersection you can go other ways, but not until that light changes.

What about when it's red, can't you go right after a full stop?  I'm just being silly.  Ya, I guess it's odd.

Again vhf it doesn't ask about any other scenario except for the one question if it was on a test I believe both answers are correct based on the question asked

Got to love all the dash cam footage that gets put into this thread, speaking of which - the law firm I work for is having a facebook contest to win a dash camera.  Would love to see some VV members enter!
