Top 10 Least Ticketed Cars

Don’t you hate getting a speeding ticket?  I sure do. My last one was a couple of years ago. I got caught in a speed trap on the back roads of Louisiana. I contributed to a fundraiser for the town of Tallulah. My boys (and their friends), who all drive now, loved to see dad get pulled over.

If you think some people never get caught when they speed, you could be right. It’s not always how you drive, but what you drive, that can determine whether you get a ticket. We’re usually so interested in the type of car that’s a cop magnet for tickets.  How about the other list? What’s the best car to drive if you want to attract the least amount of attention from the police, and, in turn, ward off traffic tickets? 

Verisk Analytics recently came out with its top 10 list:

  1. Buick Rainier SUV
  2. Mazda Tribute SUV
  3. Chevrolet C/K 3500/2500 pickup
  4. Kia Spectra sedan
  5. Buick LaCrosse sedan
  6. Saturn Aura Hybrid sedan
  7. Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan
  8. Chevrolet Uplander minivan
  9. Hyundai Tucson SUV
  10. Pontiac Vibe crossover

As you can see, SUV’s and minivans dominate the list. Researchers say people with families who own so-called family cars tend to drive more cautiously. They also find that people who buy these cars are typically a little older, right around 50 years old. So bottom line, it may not be just the car that keeps tickets at bay, but the driver.

No, our Chevy Suburban isn’t on this list, however I’ve seen it as high as #2 on another “Least Ticketed” list. I’m generally a cautious driver.  I’m right around 50 years old. So what gives? That proves my point that it was a speed trap I was caught in. Do you think the judge in Tallulah, LA will buy that?
