DETROIT ( TheStreet) --Surprisingly, drivers of luxury cars, like the Mercedes M Class below, believe they are less likely to get away with a traffic violation than drivers of cheaper cars.
That's the conclusion of a new survey on traffic violations by LeaseTrader.com, which matches shoppers with people trying to get out of auto leases.
The Miami-based firm recently polled 2,017 drivers, asking whether they believed they could get away with a traffic violation based on what they drive. Among the drivers, about 500 owned vehicles in each of four categories: luxury, economy, mid-sized and SUV/truck. The company asked the drivers about the likelihood of getting tickets for speeding, red light infractions and parking fines.
