PHOTOS: The 20 cars that get the most traffic tickets

Insurance.com recently released the Top 20 Ticketed Cars list Insurance.com recently released the Top 20 Ticketed Cars list
KHQ.com - If you drive a Subaru or a Scion, chances are you've seen the flashing red and blue light in your rear-view mirror, at least according to insurance.com.

The website recently released their list of the 20 most ticketed cars in the US. The numbers were compiled from data submitted by more than 557,000 drivers who were looking at different car insurance quotes. The list isn't exactly what you'd expect either. It's not all sports cars. It includes SUV's, hybrids and even older cars that some people (me) didn't even know existed (Suzuki Reno?). 

Topping the list was the Subaru WRX. Insurance.com said one in three drivers of the WRX had a traffic violation in the past three years. 

The top ticketed brand was awarded to Scion with 27.5 percent of owners reporting a traffic conviction. Overall, the average for all vehicles was 19.9 percent. 

Take a look at the Top 20 list:

1.) Subaru WRX — 33.6 percent.

2.) Pontiac GTO — 32.7 percent.

3.) Scion FR-S — 32.6 percent.

4.) Toyota Supra — 30.8 percent.

5.) Subaru Tribeca — 29.7 percent.

6.) Volkswagen Rabbit — 29.6 percent.

7.) Mercury Topaz — 28.8 percent.

8.) Scion TC — 28.8 percent.

9.) Toyota FJ Cruiser — 28.4 percent.

10.) Mazda Mazda2 — 28.1 percent.

11.) Hyundai Veloster — 28.1 percent.

12.) Volkswagen GTI — 28.1 percent.

13.) Suzuki Reno — 28.1 percent.

14.) Scion XA — 27.8 percent.

15.) Pontiac G8 — 27.7 percent.

16.) MINI Cooper S Countryman — 27.5 percent.

17.) Mitsubishi 3000 GT — 27.4 percent.

18.) Saturn Aura — 27.1 percent.

19.) Infiniti QX56/QX80 — 27.1 percent.

20.) Toyota Prius C — 27 percent.

Will being a ticketed driver dramatically increase your rates? Probably, but insurance companies will tend to pay more attention to claims rather than tickets when they set rates, however having no tickets on your record will certainly serve you better. 

The study that ranked these top 20 cars actually studied more than 500 makes and models. Want to see where your car ranks? CLICK HERE: http://bit.ly/ZN0Cx9 (My VW Jetta ranks at #67. They didn't have a ranking for my 1977 VW Bus, but I can write this article and state proudly I've never had a ticket in any of the cars I've owned. *Knock on wood.*)

    100+ nail salons in Washington state fail sanitation and safety inspections

    KHQ.COM - More than 100 nail salons in Washington state recently failed safety and sanitation inspections from the Washington State Department of Licensing. If you think these salons are required to post these violations publicly, think again. Unlike restaurants, there's no letter grade at the door that can tell you if the services inside have been deemed safe.
