Frequently Asked Questions

15. Last week I ran a red light and got a ticket. Does that mean I’m a bad driver?

One ticket does not mean you’re a bad driver. But being stopped by the police for poor driving behavior, near misses, or accidents in the last 3 years signal a decline in driving skills. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you should check your skills.

It’s important to be aware of your limitations and how they may affect your driving. If you’re not sure you have a driving problem, ask a family member, friend, or doctor for advice. The most important thing is to be safe on the road.
