Learning Objective References
Having a driver license is a privilege, not a right. All California residents must have a driver license to operate a vehicle of any kind on a public highway or parking facility.
Other drivers and pedestrians will expect that you will follow the laws and rules of the road, be courteous, and will not be under the inﬂ uence of drugs or alcohol, or otherwise be impaired while you are driving.
If you are a minor, your parent(s) or guardian(s) are responsible for the ﬁ nancial consequences of your driving. If you have a driver license, they will expect that you will drive safely.
Passengers in your car have put their safety in your hands, and expect that because you have a driver license, you will drive safely.
A vehicle is capable of causing extensive property damage, injury, and death, and should be handled with the caution you would show a dangerous weapon such as a gun.
Driving safely includes how and where you park your car. In particular, you must ensure that you park your vehicle so that it will not roll away on a hill, and that you do not impede trafﬁc or pedestrians.
Although it may not seem important to strictly obey everyday laws, it is important to do so.
Why should you stop completely at stop signs? A stop sign means that you stop fully behind the limit line, crosswalk, or at the corner. Most accidents occur at intersections, resulting in millions of dollars of damage, injuries, and deaths. Choosing to stop completely could mean the difference between life and death.
