Nova Scotia Driving Test Practice: Ace your driving test

Question: 1 / 50

When a streetcar is stopped to take on or discharge passengers, where there is no safety zone, what does the law require you to do before passing the streetcar:

Stop 2 m behind the rearmost door where passengers are getting on or off and proceed only when it is safe to do so.

When a streetcar is stopped to take on or discharge passengers where there is no safety zone, the law requires you to stop 2 meters behind the rearmost door where passengers are getting on or off. You should only proceed when it is safe to do so. This is to ensure the safety of the passengers as they disembark and to prevent any potential accidents from occurring. The other options are incorrect because B and C are not specific enough and do not mention the required distance of 2 meters, and D is incorrect because you should never pass a streetcar on the right side, as this would put you in the path of oncoming traffic.
