These 5 Cars Get More Tickets Than Any Other Model, Says Study

1

What car should you buy if you're hoping to avoid tickets? Apparently not the Nissan 350Z.

OK, to be fair, it's probably not the car's fault — but people who buy that car are more prone to traffic violations, a new survey from Insurance.com finds.

The five cars with the "highest percentage of recently-ticketed drivers" between February 2014 and February 2016 are as follows:

  • Nissan 350Z: 33 percent
  • Lexus ES 300: 33 percent
  • Dodge Charger SE/SXT: 32 percent
  • Volkswagen Jetta GL: 31 percent
  • Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS/LT: 31 percent
  • And the five cars with the lowest percentage of ticketed drivers during that period:

  • Buick Encore: 3 percent
  • Lexus IS350: 3 percent
  • Acura ILX: 6 percent
  • Cadillac ATS: 6 percent
  • Chevrolet Express: 8 percent
