This week is National Teen Driver Safety Week and if you have a teen that is driving you know that sometimes they like to go a bit faster than the posted speed limit.

Earlier this year the website traffictickets.com came out with a list of the top towns in New York State that give out the most speeding tickets.

While some of these towns won't surprise you (New York City), some other towns on the list might leave you scratching your head about how and why are they giving out so many tickets.

There are a couple of reasons for that. These towns might be right on the New York border with Canada, Pennslyivian, or Vermont where there are a lot of out-of-state drivers who may or may not know the speed limit off the top of their heads. They could be just driving thru for the first or second time and not knowing.

So if you have a teen driving on the roads in New York, just give them a heads up to be extra careful driving through these towns since it seems that are more likely than not to issue a speeding ticket to drivers.

Check out the Top 20 towns that give out the most speeding tickets, from least to most.
