Default Flickering oil Light

The oil light on my 1996 Accord started to flicker recently. I'm going to have a mechanic check it but I'd like to know if it's safe to drive about 8 miles to his garage. The oil level is fine. I can't afford to have it towed. Thanks.

Anyone? It goes in the shop tomorrow so I need to know if I should risk driving it or not. Thanks.

Does the flicker go away when you rev the engine to a fast idle. If so then it's probably actual low oil pressure and I wouldn't drive it anymore. If it seems random then it's more likely a bad sensor or the wire to the sensor.

Honestly, I haven't driven it in awhile but if I remember correctly, the night this happened the light wasn't constantly flickering and it didn't go when I revved the engine at a light. I was in contact with a Service Advisor from the local Honda dealership and he said he hasn't heard of an oil pump going on these cars. The ride I'm taking only has about three lights. Thanks for your response.
