20 Most Ticketed Cars

The Subaru WRX is the most-ticketed car in the U.S. by percentage of owners pulled over in the U.S., according to a study Insurance.com.

More than one out of every three WRX drivers — 33.6% — reports receiving a traffic citation recently.
The Pontiac GTO came in second with 32.7%. Third and fourth are the Scion FR-S with 32.6% of owners and the Toyota Supra with 30.8%.

The list has sporty or performance vehicles that you would expect, but others are just inexplicable — neither police attention-grabbers nor likely rides for the lead-foots among us.

Such as, who’s behind the wheel in those oddly styled Subaru Tribecas — No. 5 on the list with 29.7%? What about such economy leaders as the Mazda2 or Scion xA?

Who’d expect the wild and crazy Prius C, the little one of the Prius hybrid family, to be in the Top 20 of ticket-bait?

Three other U.S.-brand cars made the top 20: The Mercury Topaz ranked seventh with 28.8%, the Pontiac G8 ranked 15th with 27.7%, and the Saturn Aura ranked 18th with 27.1%

None of the four U.S. cars in the Top 20 is still manufactured. Ford has discontinued the Mercury brand and the Topaz was last produced in 1994. General Motors abandoned Pontiac and Saturn in its 2009 bankruptcy restructuring.

The most-ticketed overall brand by percentage was Scion. Its IC was ranked eighth on the list with 28.8% of owners reporting a recent ticket, and xA 14th with 27.8% of owners. According to Insurance.com, 27.5% of all Scion owners have been tagged for a recent traffic violation.

The full study ranks 526 models. If you want to see how your car ranks head to insurance.com.
