If you feel the need for speed, be careful if you're driving one of these ten cars here in Minnesota, because they're the more likely to get a speeding ticket.

Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, while there are many forms of public or mass transit (like this new daily train route linking the Twin Cities with Chicago), we love driving-- and we love our vehicles, right? There are a LOT of licensed drivers currently behind the wheel here in Minnesota. According to Statista, 4,143,272 citizens hold a current driver's license here in the North Star State.

Of course, many of the over 4 million licensed drivers are often driving some type of vehicle, and Statista notes that the most recent estimates put the number of private and commercial vehicles on the road here in the Bold North at just over 2.1 million.

But some vehicles are more likely to get a ticket if you're caught going faster than the legal limit. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety noted that just under 300 law enforcement agencies across the state handed out over 20,000 speeding tickets during a special crackdown last July alone, noting that 'speed is a major contributing factor to fatal and life-changing crashes.'

And check out fast some Minnesotans were clocked driving:

  • 152 mph – Eden Prairie Police Department
  • 140 mph – Minnesota State Patrol District 2400 (east metro)
  • 130 mph – St. Francis Police Department
  • 130 mph – Winona County Sheriff's Office
  • 118 mph – Anoka County Sheriff's Office
