Ever wonder which cars rack up the most speeding tickets? compiled the data, and haspublished a list of the cars whose drivers are most likely to have a speeding violation on their record.

Most cars on the list shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Young people tend to speed; driving enthusiasts tend to speed; and law enforcement is looking for those two groups to speed. So not surprisingly, cheap, sporty, manual transmission cars tend to dominate the list.

A fun fact: on average, 10.54% of drivers on the road have a speeding ticket. The leading car on the list had a percentage nearly twice as high. Another fun fact: Dodge, the brand that markets itself most to speed freaks, claimed three of the top 10 spots (four, if you count Ram).

Check out the top 10 cars most likely to get a speeding ticket below.
