State of Maine Motorist Handbook and Study Guide

by State of Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles

One of life's great rites of passage is obtaining our first driver's license. It represents a milestone in independence; indeed, with the invention of the automobile, the ability to operate a motor vehicle represents the greatest level of freedom, flexibility, and mobility in human history. As exciting as having a valid license and a dependable motor vehicle can be, great danger awaits the unwary motorist. Let us never forget that we are driving a two thousand pound piece of steel. We must be vigilant, at all times, in our attention to driving to protect not only ourselves, but all others who are sharing Maine's roadways.

As you review and learn the contents of this manual, it is important to keep in mind that everything around you as a driver--from the painted lines in the road, the road signs, traffic control lights and rumble strips to the safety belts, directional signals, airbags, and anti-lock brakes--has been developed and mandated for use because, in their absence, someone died. While these devices greatly enhance the odds of emerging safely from a crash, the most critical component is the skill of the operator. That's where you come in.
