About This Quiz

While we can't account for the chances that the police actually catch you doing these behaviors on the road, we'll trust in the law of averages to work to our advantage here. Basically, while some may get away with things more and others may seem to get caught whenever they stray away from the righteous path, we're guessing you fall somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.

In this quiz, we're going to take a look at your behavior behind the wheel. Are you the kind of person who reads the traffic signs as you pass them? Do you check your blind spot before you merge into the next lane? How about music? Are you blaring your tunes so loud that it would be unlikely that you would hear a siren as it approached you? The more careless and reckless you are in the driver's seat, the more we're leaning towards a substantial number of tickets on your record.

The number of tickets you have also will have something to do with how much time you spend on the road. For example, a person who drives for many hours every day is a lot more likely to get a ticket of some kind compared to someone who is only on the road for a very short time.

That's basically our strategy here. What do you say? Are you ready to take this quiz out for a spin? Just keep it under the speed limit, will ya?
