Mercedes-Benz SL drivers most likely to get traffic tickets study concludes


Mercedes-Benz SL…Really?

A new study by Verisk Analytics has come to s surprising conclusion…that drivers of the  Mercedes-Benz SL are the most likely to get traffic tickets.

If you asked us we’d say that drivers of Corvetts or perhaps Subaru STI’s or perhaps Mitsubishi Evos would be on the top ten list.

But no.

If you look below you’ll note that Mercedes Benz is well represented with four cars in the top ten.

Perhaps the biggest surprise is the #2 slot which is held by drivers of the Toyota Solara. The theme of many of the top ten cars is that they tend to skew to older and of course more affluent drivers.

So perhaps these drivers not only have the money to buy the expensive car…but pay the traffic ticket as well.

1. Mercedes-Benz SL-Class convertible

2. Toyota Camry-Solara coupe

3. Scion tC coupe

4. Hummer H2/H3 SUV

5. Scion xB hatchback

6. Mercedes-Benz CLS-63 AMG sedan

7. Acura Integra coupe

8. Pontiac Grand Prix sedan

9. Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG sedan
