Toyota Matrix, 10th Most Ticketed Vehicle

MSN Autos just released a list of the Top 10 Most ticketed vehicles in the United States. The list is pretty interesting on one hand, but after taking a moment to think about the results, its pretty much a useless list. For the most part, the owners of the vehicles on the most ticketed list are younger and tend to speed more often or engage in otherwise ticketable offenses.

Top 10 Most Ticketed Vehicles

10. Toyota Matrix (tied)
10. Audi A4 (tied)
8. Subaru Outback
7. Scion xA
6. Mercedes CLS63 AMG
5. Toyota Solara
4. Mercedes Benz CLK63 AMG
3. Scion xB
2. Scion tC
1. Hummer H2

Jaguar XJ, Least Ticketed Vehicle in the United States

In contrast, the least ticketed vehicles are typically (yes I’m totally stereotyping) owned by older, more mature drivers. Most of these vehicles are also domestic marques, could there be a conspiracy by the domestic auto makers to drive up sales by attempting to convince the public that if they drive one of their vehicles they’ll be less likely to be pulled over?

Top 10 Least Ticketed Vehicles

10. GMC Sierra 1500
10. Buick Lucerne
8. Oldsmobile Silhouette
8. Buick Rainier
6. Mazda6
5. Buick Park Avenue
4. Chevrolet C/K 2500/3500
3. Chevrolet Tahoe
2. Chevrolet Suburban
1. Jaguar XJ

    I guess that list must be true!

    I have never gotten a ticket in my XJ! Everything else I have owned however, is a different story!

    The Scion came as a surprise to me….

    Solara drivers are younger?

    I’m surprised there aren’t more “fast” cars on the list.

    maybe its cause nobody buys those cars…?

    Scion = rice tickets :)

    No BMW’s in the top list. I think that earns us BMW drivers some credit and we shouldn’t be considered the ‘douchebags’ anymore. hahah

    I think it’s interesting that 9 cars on the least ticketed list are domestic, and 9 cars on the most ticketed are imports. What does that say about how the police view particualr vehicles? Maybe, it’s a matter of the psyche of he police. Hmm….

    Since Toyota came out with the Scion to appeal to the younger generations, it is no suprise that there are 3 Scions in the top 10.
