A new study ranks “Car models with the most speeding tickets.”
And I’m, well, surprised, to say the least.
What’s surprising is that nowhere in the Top 10 are the iconic bad boys, like the Mustang, Corvette or Camaro, the Dodge Viper and no Porsche or Ferrari.
Nope, the top ticket-getter, according to insurify.com, is a, wait for it, a Subaru WRX.
That is a hot little car, no doubt about it, but check this out. The No. 7 car is a Dodge Dart. Seriously.
Here’s another puzzler. In the No. 6 slot is a Dodge Ram 2500. A pickup!
Also missing from the list is a 1970 Ford Ranchero GT. My dad had one when I was in high school, and I know for a fact that it was a ticket collector.
It was papaya orange, with a “strobe stripe” down the side. It was hot, and fast.
A California Highway Patrol officer told my dad that he’d automatically tack on 10 mph just because of the stripe.
And he wasn’t kidding.
