Does what you drive cause you to get pulled over more often?

Which type of cars get pulled over the most? 

Automobiles are such a ubiquitous part of our lives that myths tend to build up and be spread around quickly. In a previous Meridian Honda Blog post we discussed whether or not a vehicle’s color gets them pulled over more. Our team of product experts were discussing that possibility and wondered if the individual class played a role as well. Our team did a little online research and found that there might be something to this idea. So, which type of cars get pulled over the most? A study published at the beginning of the year revealed that convertibles and coupes rank atop the list of vehicles that get the most negative attention from law enforcement.

According to the study, the top three vehicles that get pulled over the most include a Mercedes convertible and a pair of sport coupes. All three of the top vehicles ticketed most often account for several hundred-percent of all citations issued. It’s also important to note that a vehicle only does what the driver asks of it. These vehicles that account for the most traffic tickets don’t exceed speed limits on their own.  

When a vehicle has a large and powerful engine under the hood it can be hard to resist the urge to push your foot into the gas pedal. This is among the top reasons why safety experts don’t recommend that new drivers get behind the wheel of these vehicles. 

What vehicles get pulled over the least? 

Family-type vehicles like sedans and full-size SUVs are statistically less likely to get pulled over. However, the same rules about vehicles not being responsible for their driver’s behavior is true for the other end of the spectrum. Since sedans and full-size SUVs are likely to be hauling children and families, it stands to reason that those vehicles would be driven by people who are more prone to take it easy.

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia).
