Mercedes-Benz SL Most Likely Vehicle to Get a Ticket In


If you like to drive with the top down on your Mercedes-Benz SL convertible, you're more likely to get pulled over for a traffic ticket and are cited four times more often then the average U.S. driver, says a report out by Verisk Analytics Inc.

The report, put out by the insurance data company, goes on to say that three Mercedes models are among the 10 most-cited per mile driven. Also ranking high on the list are the Toyota Solara and Scion tC, coming in with the second- and third-highest violation rates.

Verisk also notes that cars that make the most-ticketed list are magnets for drivers who like their speed, as well as younger, less-experienced motorists. Among the least-ticked vehicles to drive are those that are designed to transport more people. Down at the bottom of the list with the fewest violations were eight sport-utility vehicles and minivans. The winner of the lowest rate of tickets goes to GM's Rainier SUV.

"Carrying passengers, and possibly younger passengers in car seats, makes a noticeable difference in how one drives," Verisk said. "SUVs and hatchbacks showed lower violations on average than traditional two- and four-door vehicles."
