Default The Dodge Viper Is The Least Ticketed Car On The Road. Really?

How could this possibly be true? According to a ranking of 526 past and current vehicles conducted by Insurance.com, the low-slung and rip-roaring Dodge Viper sports coupe/roadster – with a V10 engine that (for 2015) puts 640 raging horsepower to the pavement – tends to rack up the fewest traffic tickets among all passenger cars. According to the survey, only 5.3% of Viper owners have been cited for a moving violation. What? Are Vipers ever actually driven or are they simply garaged most of the year and transported on the backs of flatbed trucks to a few car shows and club gatherings?

It makes sense: Vipers usually aren't driven daily. The other cars on that list are. It's basic statistical probability that a car that is driven 30 days a month stands a better chance of getting a ticket than a car that gets driven 4 days a month.

I know when I had the Cobra I generally drove it pretty ease.

Personally I believe that when you own a car like a Viper, Cobra, etc. you really do not have anything to prove, as it's one of the most bad ass cars on the planet.

Make sense?
