  • I do not particularly *like* defensive driving. It is very tiresome.

    Your only question that involved *defensive driving* is #4.

    The majority of collisions occur in the city, where people do the majority of their driving. The majority of collisions occur at intersections — with the hazard approaching from the side.

    And I’ll bet your stupid book/course or whatever you lifted these questions from has that answer wrong! It will say the hazards are forward.
