I didn’t know that! It is really important that drivers understand the signs on
the road. As you made your way through Module Four, you probably
discovered information that was new to you.
What pieces of information were new to you?
What did you already have an idea about, and the content here helped to
explain the idea more or round out your understanding of signs and visual
clues on the road?
Is there a sign within two miles of your home—which people do not obey? Do
people know what it means and ignore it, or is it one people might not

bumper sticker. In addition to the bumper sticker, write at least one paragraph
which explains why you thought this would make a great bumper sticker and
how it summarizes the information in Module Five.

Module 6: Effects of Alcohol and Drugs
Date: _________
Make a Plan: Now that you have had a close look at the effects of drugs and
alcohol, it is best to come up with a plan before you find yourself in an
uncomfortable or unsafe position. When you make a plan you should have
several options of what you will do depending on the circumstance.
What will you do if you question whether you should be driving? (Possibly due
to drugs and alcohol, but also think about cold medicine that has made you
drowsy, or instances of extreme sleepiness.) What is your plan of action?
What will you do if the person you rode with should not be driving?
Now that you have made a plan—what next action items do you need to do?
Talk to your parents or friends. Do you need to look up the number of a local
taxi service? List at least one action item you need to do.

My Plan of Action:

Will I have a vehicle to drive? My own, or one I share?
I will need insurance. Who will pay for the insurance? How much will it cost?
Do I have restrictions on my driving? Hours of the day I can drive, number of
passengers in the car, cell phones?
How will I pay for gasoline?
Where am I allowed o drive? School, work, major highways, distance.
Report back on what type of agreements you have made about driving and
responsibilities. Your summary should be at least one full paragraph.

Abuse, defines drug addiction as “uncontrollable, compulsive drug seeking and
use, even in the face of negative health and social consequences.”

actions, and as a driver sharing the road with other cars, pedestrians, and

Please explain in a full paragraph.
