9 Tips to Ensure You’ll Have Enough to RetireFamily reveals the most ticketed vehicles in the U.S. You may be surprised to see which cars top the list.

Have you ever felt as if your car is a ticket magnet?

We all know that vehicles don’t actually get ticketed, drivers do. But certain cars do end up getting pulled over more than others.

According to a recent study by, a car insurance comparison website, the Subaru WRX claims the dubious distinction of being the most-ticketed car in America. More than one in three WRX drivers (33.6 percent) has recently received a traffic violation. And the most-ticketed car brand by percentage is the Scion.

The information is based on data compiled from more than 557,000 drivers and 526 vehicle models. says you may be surprised to see who ends up on the most-ticketed car list.

“It’s not about horsepower,” [] managing editor Des Toups said. “The Chevrolet Corvette, Dodge Viper and Nissan GT-R rank well below average for tickets even though they can easily double the highest speed limits. But those cars are also costly, so their buyers tend to be older and take fewer risks.”

Here is’s list of the top 10 most ticketed vehicles in America:

  1. Subaru WRX. 33.6 percent of drivers ticketed.
  2. Pontiac GTO. 32.7 percent.
  3. Scion FR-S. 32.6 percent.
  4. Toyota Supra. 30.8 percent.
  5. Subaru Tribeca. 29.7 percent.
  6. Volkswagen Rabbit. 29.6 percent.
  7. Mercury Topaz. 28.8 percent.
  8. Scion TC. 28.8 percent.
  9. Toyota FJ Cruiser. 28.4 percent.
  10. Mazda2. 28.10 percent.

According to MarketWatch, Karl Brauer, senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book, said drivers’ age and gender play a significant role when it comes to getting pulled over and ticketed.

These cars all appeal to a younger demographic and many of them skew heavily male. Of course, young male drivers typically take the most risks and garner the most tickets, or are involved in the most accidents.

I drive a Ford Explorer, which is ranked 230 out of 526 vehicles. About one in five Explorer drivers has been ticketed recently. Unfortunately, I fall into that category for speeding. But my vehicle is hardly at fault. I place all blame on my lead foot.
