The Most Ticketed Cars

19 March 2009 by: Adam Major No Comment


ISO Quality Planning is a company specializing in helping insurance companies identify risk. Through research and statistic compilation ISO has compiled a list of the most heavily ticketed vehicles on the road.

The group analyzed traffic data on 1.7 million drivers and established the probability of a driver of a given line of vehicles being ticketed. The Hummer and Scion tC dominated the list, receiving 463% and 460% over the average, respectively. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Jaguar XJ sedan and the Chevrolet Suburban attracted a mere 11% and 16% of expected tickets. Given that both the Hummer and the Jaguar are high-cost vehicles, it flips the idea that a huge price tag automatically means more police attention.

Whether Hummer drivers really think of themselves as king of the road, or simply find it hard to camouflage in traffic, is ground for another study. While the easiest way to avoid seeing the cops pulling you over is to follow all traffic regulations and being a safe and courteous driver. The rate shown in the table is worth considering when buying a car.
