It’s a dubious honor, but Massachusetts recently made #10 on Driverside.com’s list of Top 10 Speediest States. The list compares the number of tickets to the state’s population to ensure that even small states received equal consideration.
According to the list, law enforcement officials doled out over 300,000 tickets to Massachusetts drivers last year with Delaware and South Carolina close behind. The District of Columbia snagged the top spot with 434,301 tickets. Interesting, DC only has just over a half million residents, so it works out to roughly 78.5% of the population. Our guess is that some of those tickets went to commuters or tourists from neighboring states.
