It’s critical to know the rules of the road before you get behind the wheel of a car. But for most of us, it’s been a long time since we sat for our driver’s license exam. It’s likely we forget – or maybe never even learned – some of them. To see how well you know your driving laws, take our rules of the road quiz below and let us know how you do!
Unless otherwise stated, all questions refer to driving laws in the six states in AAA Northeast’s territory: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island. Similarly, all mentions of the term “Northeast states” refer to the aforementioned six states.
*In New Jersey and Rhode Island, headlights are required to be on from sunset to sunrise.
^In New Hampshire, the age limit is 7
#New York has no such law while New Jersey’s ban only applies to those with a learner’s examination permit. All Northeast states ban handheld cell phones and texting while driving for ALL drivers.
