Cruising down the road with the top down might sound like a blast, but it's easy to get carried away when you’re having a grand time driving and not paying attention to your speed. Packing a 3.5L V6 engine with 306-hp and 268 lb-ft of torque, it’s no wonder nearly 15% of drivers behind the wheel of this manual mini-beast are stopped for exceeding the speed limit.
But just because the car can go fast doesn’t mean you should—it’s why 14.7% of Charger drivers have at least one speeding ticket. And funny enough, Dodge claimed the #1 spot for the vehicle brand with the most speeding tickets in 2020.
It’s by no means an expensive sports car, but it drives aggressively, and the Rally Edition reminds drivers that Veloster race cars exist—but it probably shouldn’t be taken literally.
It’s a car built to thrill, and drivers want to experience it to the fullest extent. Unfortunately, that means the speeding tickets that come with it. Stinger drivers surpass the speed limits 43% more than the average driver, helping it live up to its reputation.
GTI drivers are cited with speeding tickets 36% more often than the average driver. So, while the price of the GTI may not break the bank, following in its “sports car” reputation and hitting the pedal down just might.
Despite its reputation for speedy drivers, the WRX has ample safety features that earned it an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ in 2021. It seems like an interesting coincidence that a car with such good safety ratings has drivers willing to risk their safety for the thrill of speed.
