Most-Ticketed Cars List Topped by Subaru WRX, Pontiac GTO

A new study of the most-ticketed cars in the U.S. may leave hot rod enthusiasts breathing a sigh of relief since inexpensive, low-maintenance cars favored by younger drivers draw the largest percentage of tickets.

An Insurance.com assessment found drivers of the Subaru WRX were most likely to be ticketed, with more than one-third of owners reportedly getting tickets. In second place, the Pontiac GTO saw 32.7 percent of its drivers ticketed, and the Scion FR-S had 32.6 percent.

Insurance.com gleaned data from moving vehicle violations over a three-year period and compared it with more than a half million auto insurance quotes. Surprisingly, horsepower was not a big factor, according to Insurance.com Managing Editor Des Toups.

"The Chevrolet Corvette, Dodge Viper and Nissan GT-R rank well below average for tickets even though they can easily double the highest speed limits. But those cars are also costly, so their buyers tend to be older and take fewer risks," Toups said in a news release.

Joining the WRX on the 10 “most-ticketed” list: Pontiac GTO, Scion FR-S, Toyota Supra, Subaru Tribeca, Volkswagen Rabbit, Mercury Topaz, Scion tC, Toyota FJ Cruiser, and Mazda2.

The cars least likely to be ticketed included the Chevrolet Orlando concept minivan, Ford Eco Sport, Mercedes DCX Sprinter, Ford Club Wagon, and Dodge Viper.
