Cars That Get the Most Traffic Tickets

When MSN Autos recently reviewed law enforcement data collected by insurance analysts Quality Planning, they were surprised to learn that the top 10 Most Ticketed Cars were much more ordinary than the high-performance race cars one would generally presume as traffic violators.

To determine which models received the most tickets, Quality Planning calculated the average number of tickets per vehicle out of 1.7 million violations issued in 2007 and 2008.  In addition to compiling their list of worst offenders, the company also estimated the national average to be 0.23 tickets per 100,000 miles.

The following are the 10 Most Ticketed Cars:

Traffic Tickets


10.  Toyota Matrix

9.  Audi A4

8.  Subaru Outback

7.  Scion xA

6.  Mercedes-Benz CL S63 AMG

5.  Toyota Camry Solara

4.  Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG

3.  Scion xB

2.  Scion tC

1.  Hummer H2/H3


Whether these cars made the list because they are often owned by younger drivers or because owners may be inclined to drive aggressively, the fact of the matter is cops are really just looking for those cars going way too fast.  Slow down and stay calm and you shouldn’t have to worry about finding police lights in your rearview mirror, no matter what model car you drive.
