If you're an Idahoan with a need for speed...

you might wanna slow your roll if you drive a certain kind of car. 

Right or wrong, your ride can mean the difference between racking up a glove box of speeding tickets or going unnoticed at 15 over on I-84. We hate to say it, but most of us are at the mercy of stereotyping behind the wheel.  

Certain cars scream, "D-bag on board."

They might not say it, but plenty of Idahoans think it: the flashier the car, the douchier the driver. Sorry, y'all, minivans and Town & Countries aren't the ones stealin' the show or ISP's attention when it comes to speeding. It's the Hummer H2s, Maybachs, Mustangs, and Camaros that practically scream, "D-bag on board."

Their sleek designs and loud, powerful engines typically lead to the general assumption that their owners' have a led foot, that they're probably overcompensating for what they lack in the sack, or both 🙃 

Color & youth matter, too. 

The brighter the color, the more obvious it is that the car is doing 50 in a 35mph zone, right? And it doesn't take a rocket scientist to get why a youngin' in a hand-me-down Honda Civic would be stereotyped as a reckless while a mature driver in a luxury car like a Lexus may be perceived as more responsible and law-abiding.

10 Most Popular Makes and Models Getting Speeding Tickets

To identify the car brands with the most speed-prone drivers, the data scientists at Insurify turned to their database of more than 4.6 million car insurance applications. When applying for car insurance, drivers disclose their vehicle make and model, as well as any citations, such as speeding tickets, they have on their driving record within the past seven years. For each vehicle brand, Insurify data scientists compared the number of drivers reporting a speeding ticket against the total number of drivers in the database to determine the share of drivers with a speeding ticket.
