This Brand Is Most Likely To Get A Speeding Ticket

Offbeat / Comments

It's not the one you think.

Speeding tickets suck, and even manufacturers want to help you avoid them. Google is also doing its bit to help drivers avoid these fines. The tickets can often be ludicrously expensive, but what brand gets them the most? You'd assume that it would be a brand like BMW or Audi, or perhaps something a little more exotic like Porsche. In 2019, the answer was Subaru. The Japanese brand is no longer at the top of the list, although it still holds a lofty spot. According to Insurify's latest report, it's an Italian brand, namely Alfa Romeo. That's astonishing because Alfa makes far fewer models than most other brands.

The report says that an average of 10.5 percent of all drivers in the US have received at least one speeding ticket, but some get tickets more often than others. Ready for the top five? Here goes: In fifth place, Ram is oddly ahead of brands like BMW while Maserati occupies the fourth-place spot. In third is Volkswagen while Subaru gets silver. At the top of the list is Alfa Romeo, with approximately 15 percent of owners reporting at least one ticket. That's 41 percent higher than the average, and the other four brands mentioned here have figures around 12 to 13 percent.

Now you're probably wondering which models are the worst offenders. The 1500 is Ram's most ticket-prone model, while the 2500 is the least. At Maserati, the GranTurismo gets the most tickets while the Quattroporte is relatively safe from the 5-0. At Volkswagen, the unsurprising worst offender is the Golf GTI, while Subaru's is the WRX.

As you have probably guessed by now, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is at the top of the rankings. The least likely from those three brands are the Beetle, Ascent, and Stelvio respectively. With the report based on data from 4 million drivers, a broader survey may reveal different results, but it still looks quite representative. Wanna avoid tickets as much as possible? Just 9% of Lincoln owners (nerds) have been caught breaking the speed limit.
