10 Most Ticketed Cars!

10 Most Ticketed Cars
1. Hummer H2
People who love the Hummer H2 probably love its bold, imposing looks. Apparently, cops love the H2 because it helps them meet their ticket quotas. Here's a tip: If you have an H2, maybe you shouldn't drive it near then end of the month when traffic cops are scrambling to make their numbers.

2. Scion tC
Seeing the tC on the most-ticketed list makes sense, given its popularity with young people. Its sporty performance, which comes at a price that makes affording tickets easy, probably helps tempt some drivers as well.

3. Scion xB
Like the Scion tC, the xB is aimed at younger drivers. Still, when you look at the xB's less-than-stellar performance, it's safe to assume that all the tickets xB drivers are getting aren't moving violations.

4. Mercedes Benz CLK63 AMG
If you're lucky enough to have a Mercedes AMG -- any AMG -- then a few tickets are worth unleashing this luxurious beast. Besides, if you've got a Mercedes, you can probably afford a few traffic citations.

5. Toyota Solara Coupe
Now, here's a surprise. The fifth most ticketed car is the Toyota Solara Coupe. Essentially a two-door Camry, the Solara isn't known for road-thrashing performance. Maybe Solara drivers just get a lot of parking tickets.

6. Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG
The CLS63 AMG is another luxury performance car, so it's no shocker to see its drivers among the most ticketed. The question is: With all that power, why aren't more CLS63 AMG drivers outrunning the cops?

7. Scion xA
With the xA taking the seventh spot on the ten most ticketed cars list, Scion completes the traffic-ticket hat trick. Toyota's upstart little brand has only come out with four models over its entire lifespan -- and three of them will likely get you a date in traffic court.

8. Subaru Outback
Subarus have a reputation of being yuppie grocery getters, but the Outback manages to prove that stereotype wrong by being one of the top ten most ticketed cars. Apparently, the Outback is the car of choice for people who need to get to Whole Foods in a hurry, and maybe park illegally once they're there.

9. Audi A4
Audi often finds itself in the shadows of Mercedes and BMW, but not when it comes to getting tickets. The Audi A4 is the ninth most ticketed car in America.

10. Toyota Matrix
The Toyota Matrix is often credited for bringing SUV styling to small cars. Now it can also be credited to bringing insurance rate increases to thousands of its owners.

Hmmmmmm.....

While interesting to read, it has no value. That is about as informative as saying which car receives more tickets?? Leather or cloth? It is sort of immaterial.
It is not the VEHICLES action that gets the ticket, it is the DRIVER. The same way it is not the GUNS fault for killing, it's the CRIMINAL pulling the trigger.
Most accurate would be a driver profile of those ticketed. I think that may show a "in your face, possibly a little immature or irresponsible, it's all about me syndrome, little or no respect for others, not accountable for their actions (or feel they don't have to be) and the look at me-look what I got." Usually THOSE traits bleedover ito most other aspects of their life, including car buying and its operation. I thinke we ALL know people that fit in these categories and have seen them on the road?? nd you threw you hand in the air and possibly blew your horn as you drove by him?? LOL!!
I am NOT talking about most car guys that take pride in their cars and mods and work hard to have their best as a hobby or show, but do so responsibly and enjoy their work.
I can GUARANTEE you a Radar set or Laser does NOT differentiate or discriminate! It can't "see" any difference between a Rolls Royce and a Prius!
