Is your car a magnet for police? Depending on the make and model, it could be.

Insurify, an auto insurance comparison site, has released a list of the car brands most often ticketed for speeding, based on more than 4.6 million insurance applications.

Foreign cars dominate the list.

The most frequently cited automaker is Infiniti, with 8.7% of drivers reporting speeding tickets. Scion, Volkswagen and Subaru are also in the 8% range, and well above the national average of 7.1%.

Within each of these brands, Insurify also identified specific models that are ticketed the most.

The “worst offender” is the BMW i3, with 17.6% of its drivers having speeding citations on their records. 

Other cars topping the list are the Audi S4 (14.6%), Scion FR-S (13.7%), Subaru WRX (13.6%), Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Kia Stinger (13.4%), Volkswagen Golf GTI (11.1%), Honda S2000 (10.8%) and Infiniti G37 (10.7%)

“All 10 of the worst offenders are either high-performance sporty vehicles or beloved for how fun they are to drive,” Insurify notes. “It may be that speeders are choosing zippy cars with powerful engines — rather than the cars tempting otherwise safe drivers to put the pedal to the metal.”

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the three brands that speed the least are Cadillac (5.4%), Tesla (5%) and Volvo (2.7%).

A Rand survey found that roughly 8.6 million Americans are ticketed for speeding each year. Insurify says the average monthly cost of insurance for a driver with a speeding ticket is $123, but it could be much higher based on your driving history.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says speeding was a factor in 29% of traffic deaths in 2020.
