Is it the car you drive? Is it the colour of your vehicle? Is it your driving habits? Or is it all of the above that makes police nervous? There are a multitude of factors that can affect your insurance premiums but sometimes it’s simply the vehicle you drive.

Many people think sports cars or luxury vehicles like Lamborghinis and Ferraris encourage more ticketing, however, the cars most prone to penalizations are far more average, and in fact, upscale luxury vehicles like BMWs are the least prone to getting ticketed.

When purchasing or leasing a new or used car, there are some considerations to make which go beyond getting ticketed; in particular, long-term costs and insurance expenses since different car brands and their associated models are subject to higher insurance premiums, higher vulnerability to theft, and of course, higher chances of being ticketed or penalized by the authorities.
