With a large number of employees working from home since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, state and local officials have noted a sharp increase in motorists exceeding posted speed limits over what are less congested roadways.

The California Highway Patrol, for example, reports it’s ticketing twice the usual number of motorists for speeding at in excess of 100 mph–that’s a $500 fine for first-time offenders, not to mention a big bump in one’s insurance rates. In all, the Patrol says more than 15,000 citations for speeding were issued statewide between mid-March and mid-August.

  1. Subaru WRX (20.49%)
  2. Volkswagen GTI (17.38%)
  3. Subaru Impreza (15.9%)
  4. Infiniti G37 (15,61%)
  5. Dodge Dart (15.45%)
  6. Hyundai Veloster (15.43%)
  7. Dodge Challenger (15.09%)
  8. Dodge/Ram 2500 (14.79)
  9. Dodge Charger (14.71)
  10. Nissan 350Z (14.65)
