Didn't know what the reverse curve was called till now.

very much disagree with your comment about speed limit

you care about cops?
if it's night time the speed limit helps you determine visibility
and I don't think any question said "what is your biggest concern here?" and gave the answer "speed limit" although maybe your test was different...... or you didn't read it well? (just givin you here)

HOWEVER, yeah there were a few questions where the answer should have been "D: all of the above"

I got
19/20 signs
17/20 collision

both on fast for first try, second try got 20/20 on both

Nope. I ride the same route every day (over 400 times). If I don't know the speed limits already then something is wrong. I have gotten one ticket (jinx) ever for 5 mph over (going 15 over) in my 16 years of driving/riding and that was because I left work after receiving a call that my fiance (now wife) was in the hospital.

I found this link, it is a game/test developed by MSF. It is rather entertaining.

On the collision traps test I got a 17/20

20/20 on fast signs.
17/20 on fast collisions, couldn't even read one of the signs in the collision test though, too small.

19/20 and 15/20 fast...

Don't like the collision so much...some of them (to me) would have multiple reasons for a reaction/concern.
Ex: Traffic, you've got an SUV encroaching from your left, a stopped rig(?)/heavy truck on the right. Correct answer is there might be person in front of the truck.
