One car model is involved in more reckless driving incidents than any other: study


A new study from insurance company Insurify analyzed the driving records of its 1.9 million motorists to find out which car models most appeal to drivers who have careless driving offenses.

“Reckless driving has serious consequences, including personal injury, property damage, criminal charges and soaring insurance prices,” Insurify wrote in his study. “While any vehicle can be misused, it turns out that some car models tend to attract more reckless drivers than others. “

Insurify was able to access motorists’ driving records from the time they applied for insurance, enabling the company to analyze the car models with the most driving violations from 2010 to the present.

Any car model has an average of 15 in 10,000 of its drivers having at least one reckless driving offense. However, the cars compiled for Insurify’s Top 10 Cars with the Most Reckless Driving Incidents start with an average of 44 per 10,000 drivers.

“While the list of the 10 most reckless driving models includes trucks, SUVs, sedans, coupes and luxury vehicles, by far the most represented category is sports cars,” Insurify wrote.

The car occupying the less-than-coveted No.1 spot for most drivers of reckless driving infractions was the Mazda MX-5 Miata, with 73 infractions per 10,000, scoring nearly 390% higher than the average rate.

“With a 2019 MSRP of $ 26,650, the MX-5 Miata is a sports car with a more affordable price tag than most of its counterparts,” Insurify wrote. “Maybe that lower dollar investment makes for more reckless driving behavior, but regardless, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has more reckless drivers than any other model in the country. “

The other nine cars completing the top 10 were, in order from least to largest, the Dodge Challenger, Saturn L200, RAM 1500, Volkswagen CC, Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet K1500, Nissan 370Z, Isuzu Rodeo and the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
