The cars with drivers most likely to get a traffic ticket

People in South Carolina who drive a Lexus ES 300 may be more prone to getting traffic tickets than other drivers according to a survey that looked at which vehicles accumulated the most versus the fewest traffic violations. One consumer analyst cautioned that it is the driver and not the vehicle that is responsible for the ticket.

The highest-ticketed cars also tended to have the highest number of insurance claims. Last year's top-ticketed vehicle, the Subaru WRX, slid all the way to 12th place in the latest survey. Other vehicles claiming top spots in the most recent survey include the Nissan 350Z, which ties with the Lexus at 33 percent, and the Dodge Charger SE/SXT just below them at 32 percent. The Volkswagen Jetta GL and Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS/LT were tied at 31 percent. In all, the survey examined more than 323,000 customers and 331 models.

The cars that tended to get the fewest number of tickets were described as luxury vehicles. These include the Buick Encore, the Lexus IS 350 and the Acura ILX.

While some people may consider a ticket from a traffic violation to be minor, in fact, the fines and points from these tickets can add up quickly. They also cause insurance premiums to go up. Too many points can result in a license suspension, and this can affect a person's likelihood of getting or maintaining a job. People might also feel that a traffic ticket is an automatic record of guilt, but this is not the case. Traffic tickets can be challenged in court just like any other charges, and the result may be a reduction in the penalty or an outright dismissal. People with traffic tickets may find it worthwhile to consult a lawyer to find out about their options.
