Are you a Safe Rider

Here is a Fun little test I found on the MSF site I think the Collisions trap test is a good one to make you think

I got 19 out of 20 on both at medium speed my first time through

How safe are you?

I agree and the answers makes you think just as much as the pictures do!

16/20 on hazards. I quessed wrong about the 2 about correct lane to ride in. But shouldn't the motorcycle have the right to the right, middle, or left? That is just a guess as to where the mishap might occur.

16/20 on hazards. I missed the 2 about correct lane to ride in. But shouldn't the motorcycle have the right to the right, middle, or left? That is just a guess as to where the mishap might occur. And another thing, why is the
motorcycle ahead considered a hazard? He looks like a safe rider to me.

18\20 on both! Good info and makes you think.

It appears you can take it many times as the questions change constantly.

I got A 17 out of 20 for signs and 19 out of 20 for hazards on med. kinda tough looking at the pic taking it in and not knowing what the question is going to be, so not sure what to really look for.

20/20 on both
You gotta pay attention though, cause some of them are tricky, there will be multiple hazards in the pic, and you gotta find which one is of immediate concern.

Pretty good considering it's an american test , they never even asked who has right of way when 2 cars are about to enter the Tim hortons drive through from opposite sides ............ Or how to avoid crashing on the wapiti bridge on hwy 40 in -39 ice fog

Must be my fast Internet connection. The signs just flash on and off but not long enough to see. I blinked and missed it. But I do love the high speed connection!
