Do drivers of luxury cars get more speeding tickets?

Many people dream of the day they will be able to drive the luxury car they admired as a child. After years of work, you are finally living the dream.

As you get out on the open road, however, you may be wondering about the myths behind driving your favorite car. You may wonder whether police are harsher on people who drive expensive vehicles.

Here’s what is behind the myths and rumors about traffic tickets and luxury cars.

Your crowd may confirm the myth

Before you upgrade your vehicle, it may seem like an exaggeration that you are more likely to get pulled over and ticketed if you drive a nice car. Once you have your new luxury vehicle, you may hear about more people with your type of car receiving more tickets.

While some statistics show certain cars are more likely to see flashing lights in the rearview mirror, the more common factor is your crowd. As you advanced your career and increased your income, you likely met more people who drive nice cars. Once your social circle changed, you started hearing more about people who have similar purchasing habits getting tickets.

How do I avoid being a target?

Keep in mind that it is the driver that gets the ticket, not the vehicle. Officers are looking for certain unsafe actions, rather than specific automobiles.

Your new vehicle may have a lot of horsepower, but you still need to be careful about how you use it. When you are driving, avoid behaviors such as:

  • Revving your engine
  • Texting and other distractions
  • Swerving and tailgating

It can be exciting when others are as enthusiastic about your new vehicle as you are. When you keep the same safe driving habits, you can avoid the wrong kind of attention.
