Most Ticketed Cars 2008

Here's a neat little report on the most ticked cars of 2008 compiled by a third party research group for the insurance companies...

ISO Quality Planning, a company specializing in helping insurance companies identify risk, has compiled a list of the most heavily ticketed vehicles on the road, and lead feet everywhere can check it out.

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.

Ah, but drivers like powerful cars because "It allows them to accellerate out of trouble". That'll be why powerful cars are so much cheaper to insure, then - they're so much safer.

I also have to ad that for my 40+ years on this earth I never ONCE saw a decent Saab driver. However my parents who are both good older drivers did recently get their first and only Saab. They will be selling soon though as it was only a winter beater (168k miles)
