What car should you buy if you're hoping to avoid tickets? Apparently not the Nissan 350Z. OK, to be fair, it's probably not the car's fault—but people who buy that car are more prone to traffic violations, a new survey from finds. The five cars with the "highest percentage of recently-ticketed drivers" between February 2014 and February 2016:

  1. Nissan 350Z: 33%
  2. Lexus ES 300: 33%
  3. Dodge Charger SE/SXT: 32%
  4. Volkswagen Jetta GL: 31%
  5. Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS/LT: 31%

And the five cars with the lowest percentage of ticketed drivers during that period:

  1. Buick Encore: 3%
  2. Lexus IS350: 3%
  3. Acura ILX: 6%
  4. Cadillac ATS: 6%
  5. Chevrolet Express: 8%
