Experts in the United States conducted a study and named the brands of cars whose owners most often violate traffic rules.
On the basis of 2.5 million applications for insurance, experts noted which car owners are the worst offenders. Note that during the insurance of the car, the applicant is obliged to indicate the accidents in which he fell, as well as all his violations of the rules.
