Off Point - Speeding Ticket?

--- A study released this month provides evidence to what many drivers already suspected–the model of your car likely impacts your chances of getting a speeding ticket. ---

The dreaded speeding ticket–it happens to everyone–but if you think it happens to some people more than others, you’re right.  In a study analyzing auto insurance claims, researchers found that the model of your car may be a factor when police decide to pull you over.

The car that gets the most speeding tickets is the Mercedes-Benz SL class.  Whether it’s out of curiosity on the part of the police officer wanting to take a closer look, or the driver who can’t help but to enjoy the car’s 382 horsepower, V-8 engine on a car with a purchase price of approximately $100,000…drivers of these cars get four times as many tickets as everyone else.  

These other cars are also more likely to earn their owners a ticket:

• Toyota Camry-Solara

• Scion TC

• Hummer H3 or H2

• Scion XB

• Mercedes-Benz CLS

• Acura Integra

• Pontiac Grand Prix

• Mercedes-Benz CLK

• Volkswagen GTI

One note-worthy aspect of this list – only two of these cars are made in Detroit and both have been discontinued!  

The least-ticketed cars include SUVs and more economically-friendly cars, such as the Buick Lacrosse, Mazda Tribute, Hyundai Tucson, and Oldsmobile Silhouette. 

This was the second annual study done by Quality Planning, a Verisk Analytics company that validates policyholder information for auto insurers.  The study looks at vehicle types, their driver profiles, and the frequency of traffic violations.
