Getting a ticket at any age sucks.
Getting a speeding ticket outright sucks. Plain and simple. And, typically speaking, we often assume that young men in their twenties get pulled over by the police the most for speeding. But it turns out that’s not exactly the case. According to a new survey from InsuranceQuotes.com, adults between the ages of 50 to 64 are the most likely to have been issued a speeding ticket over the past five years. The survey revealed that 70 percent of drivers within that age group admitted to receiving at least one ticket.
However, drivers between the ages of 30 to 49 receive the greatest number of tickets. Specifically, these people have a household income over $75,000. And get this: women were found to be more likely than men, 69 versus 64 percent, to have been issued a ticket in recent history. Interestingly enough, 78 percent of respondents claimed their insurance premiums didn’t go up after being ticketed. One of the perks of aging, apparently. Overall, it was found that 66 percent of survey respondents were given a ticket for speeding over other violations.
