This is a study from data analysts at Your Mechanic. If you have read this blog long, you know there are certain factors that contribute to insurance premiums on your personal auto. One factor you may not have thought about lately is the number of moving violations that may be on your driving record and associated with a certain vehicle.

According to some studies from speeders can tend to prefer certain car models. The study that came up with this list expanded on this looking at models such as trucks, compacts, SUV’s , luxury, compact etc… and used this to get some data on what drivers are likely to be ticketed and vehicle types.

Traffic violations can differ from state to state. The most common from which they derived the list was running red lights, driving without headlights, illegal turns, illegal parking, running a stop sign and speeding.
