Drive carefully today, because the cops are really hoping they catch you doing 36 in a 35 like the hardened criminal you are.

According to a new study, cops really do give more tickets out toward the end of a month. The most common tickets they give out are speeding tickets and license or registration violations.

Here are the top five days in an average month when cops issue the most tickets:

  1. The 31st.
  2. The 30th.
  3. The 1st.
  4. The 28th.
  5. The 29th.
