The 20 most ticketed cars in the U.S.

Which cars on the road are the most ticketed?

A study released in late 2014 by Insurance.com, a car insurance comparison-shopping website, found that one in three drivers of the Subaru WRX were charged with a recent traffic violation.

Here is a look at the 20 most ticketed cars. But remember, drivers, don't blame your tools. As Insurance.com managing editor Des Toups wrote in a statement releasing the numbers, "Cars don't get tickets, drivers do, but those drivers like the WRX."

Insurance.com analyzed online quote information submitted by 557,238 drivers between Jan. 1, 2013 and July 2014.
