Are you more likely to be pulled over or pull an ace from a deck of cards? Find out that and more with our latest infographic.

infographic: what are the odds of tickets and accidents?

Dash cams are becoming increasingly popular. And all those car crash videos appearing on the internet have us thinking about the likelihood of getting into an accident (among other things).

This infographic examines the likelihoods of a few driving (and non-driving) situations, like getting into a car accident, being pulled over, and receiving a ticket after getting pulled over.

Of course, these numbers vary by city and state. But you as a driver have the ability to improve your odds, so play it safe and save that text for later!

    That is an interesting calculation of odds. The odds of being pulled over for speeding and maybe getting a ticket for that offense would go down drastically if all main road posted limits were set for maximum safety, but most are not set at the safest points. If safety is the true goal for speed limits, the limits are set at the 85th percentile speed of free flowing traffic under good conditions, rounded to the nearest 5 mph interval. Unfortunately, most limits are set 10 or 15 mph below this safest point which creates the multi-billion dollar speeding ticket industry. Artificially low posted limits slightly reduce safety overall, but are SO profitable that it is hard to get governments to do the right things and post the safest speed limits.

    It might help on credibility if you calculate the odds of drawing an ace from a shuffled deck of cards correctly.
