Don't you hate getting a speeding ticket? If you think some people never get caught when they speed, you could be right. It's not always how you drive, but what you drive, that can determine whether you get a ticket.
We're usually so interested in the type of car that's a cop magnet for tickets. How about the other list? What's the best car to drive if you want to attract the least amount of attention from the police, and, in turn, ward off traffic tickets?
Verisk Analytics recently came out with its top 10 list:
Buick Rainier SUV
Mazda Tribute SUV
Chevrolet C/K 3500/2500 pickup
Kia Spectra sedan
Buick LaCrosse sedan
Saturn Aura Hybrid sedan
Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan
Chevrolet Uplander minivan
Hyundai Tucson SUV
Pontiac Vibe crossover
As you can see, SUV's and minivans dominate the list. Researchers say people with families who own so-called family cars tend to drive more cautiously. They also find that people who buy these cars are typically a little older, right around 50 years old. So bottom line, it may not be just the car that keeps tickets at bay, but the driver.
