When you get selected to represent the top of a list, generally it’s either a good thing, or a bad thing.
- Most fun to drive
- List of reliable cars
- Best/Worst performance
What ever the list, you usually have an understanding of where you stand among others on that list. You’ve either performed well, you’re sitting at the bottom, or someplace in between. So when the MINI Cooper S made the top of this list, we had to question if it was a good thing or bad. The list? Insurance.com and YourMechanic.com‘s 2016 Most Ticketed Subcompact.
Based on more than 323,000 insurance quotes; 26.7% MINI Cooper S (not broken down by sub-model; Hardtop, Clubman, Countryman, etc.) owners received tickets for speeding or other moving violations from January 1, 2014, to February 1, 2016. Non-S owners received fewer tickets with 19% of those looking for a new policy having been ticketed.
So… the questions of the hour are: Do MINI drivers drive faster? Do MINIs drive more recklessly? Are we just having more fun? Tell us what you think in the comment section below!
