Mercedes-Benz Sedans Among Most Ticketed Cars

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — If you’re the proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz, congratulations – your car may be among the 10 most ticketed cars, according to an insurance industry study.

Mercedez-Benz is well represented on the list, occupying the No. 1, No. 6 and No. 9 spots on the list.

Verisk Analytics, which supplies data to insurers, found that the cars aren’t necessarily a magnet for cops in a ticketing mood. However, the cars on the list apparently attract drivers who like to drive fast.

The Mercedes-Benz SL class convertible topped the list, with the study finding SL drivers get ticketed about four times as often as the average driver.

The Top 10 Cars Most Likely To Get A Ticket:

1. Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible
2. Toyota Camry-Solara Coupe
3. Scion tC Coupe
4. Hummer H2/H3 SUV
5. Scion xB Hatchback
6. Mercedes-Benz CLS-63 AMG Sedan
7. Acura Integra Coupe
8. Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan
9. Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Sedan
10. Volkswagen GTI Hatchback
