    Well, there's a few things you can do =). Test to see if the stopping distances are correct given the initial velocity. Look into the thinking distances and other various things.

    I know their average acceleration for the braking distance are diff, but could that be the case? I'm not sure if I have to worry about the thinking distance either.

    Just glancing at the progression of distances, I'd say you were right. Show your work for how you calculated the accelerations.
