About these Statistics

These statistics do not take into account all of the traffic violations, but rather a segment of the data for comparision. This data is heavily skewed towards more recent traffic tickets. This data does not take into account most reckless driving tickets, which generally occur when the ticket is over 15mph over the speed limit. There were a total of 17283 traffic violations collected.
