Ever blame your car when you get a ticket? Well, maybe you should. Of course, cars don’t get tickets, drivers do. Yet, according to a recent study from Insurance.com, speeders frequently prefer the same model cars.
Several factors play a role in an insurance carriers assessment of risk. When they look at driving habits, someone with multiple speeding tickets is thought to be more likely to get into an accident than someone with a clean driving record. Not to mention the cost of a claim for a high-speed accident that will be higher and have more property damage along with potential bodily injuries.
