One of my favorite blogs, the Lifehacker blog, recently published an article entitled “The Most Ticketed Cars on the Road.” Not surprisingly, the Hummer H2 and H3 top the list, getting ticketed almost 500% more than average. Other cars that seem to attract the police include:
- Scion XB
- Subaru Outback
- Audi A4
- Toyota Matrix
Which cars draw the least attention from the police? The Jaguar XJ sedan and the Chevrolet Suburban draw the least amount of tickets. Other low profile vehicles include the Buick Park Avenue, Oldsmobile Silhouette and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup.
The Lifehacker post draws on data from ISO Quality Planning, a consulting company that helps insurance companies evaluate risk for purposes of deciding how much to charge policyholders.
The study does not explain why a particular vehicle ends up on one list or the other. What do you think?
