I travel I-10 past Palm Springs often. Us fellers in pickup trucks blast thru at 80+ mph. All the Porches, Vettes, Cobras and other speed demons cruise at the speed limit. Must have figured out that the CHP has little compassion toward them.

Interesting. Several high-dollar cars (hidden tax on the “rich”) included. Now compare this list to the most stolen cars...

Small mirrors, huge blindspots - the Scion xB hatchback is an accident waiting to happen. I can't count the number of times my small SUV has almost been hit by them.

Looks like some class warfare going on there. Call out the lawyers.

They left out P.O.S. 1981 Datsun pickup trucks. Those get tickets a lot. At least mine does for some reason.

Scions seem to be targeted toward younger drivers - taking more risks (speeding, weaving in traffic).
The Pontiac drivers may be young women, driving in the manner described above and yakking on the cell phone.

The most ticketed cars are those that beautiful women don’t drive.

Gay hairdressers love their Z4s but dislike driving too fast to be seen in detail, owners of 7-series WOULD drive fast if their cars were ever out of the shop, and cops know that 6 cyl. Honda Accords blow the doors off most 3-series.

I understand why the VW GTI is on the list. Hubby has one and on the days he takes his motorcycle to work I steal his car.

I LOVE the thing, it’s REALLY fast and it handles great.

Thank god its gray and not red, or I would already have been pulled over in it :) .

Of Course
Scion tC Coupe, Scion XB Hatchback. The Volkswagen micro bus of the 21st century. And we all know the acrid smell that came from those chartreuse microbusses.

I have a 6 cyl. Accord. It's fast and yet so nondescript it's almost invisible. Great car.

nah, just arrogant sobs that drive them think they can park anywhere and afford (or not pay) the ticket.

I've had a Red Porsche 911, a Red Corvette Convertible and a Red Cobra Mustang.

I never got a ticket in any of them, but I have never been followed by more CHP Cars in my life. They were just hoping and praying I would shift into third and hit the gas.

When I found out my Sister In Law got a speeding ticket driving her Chrysler K Car while following me driving the Vette, I had to smother my laughter. I don't think she'll ever forgive me, or the Cop.

I recommend that you freely, of your own will, notwithstanding any law, choose to use your seatbelt every single time you drive. It is my personal experience that when you need it, it will turn sure death into a rear-ender walkaway you laugh at later over a beer.

Look at it this way - a wise person once pointed out, "If you want peace, prepare for war."

I drive a gunmetal grey VW new beetle. It's like I have a cloaking device. I have blown past cops on secondary roads at 10-15 over , and... nothing. Before this I owned all red cars. Not anymore.

I drive a black Lincoln. People actually seem more polite, yielding to me. My guess is they must think I'm someone important or a lawyer who might sue them if they hit me.

stick it up your ass. I regularly ride a motorcycle. If its so unsafe to not wear a seatbelt in a truck, then why are motorcycles legal? so you go parrot your stupid seatbelt crusade somewhere else.

The only time I got a speeding ticket(knock on wood) was in a red car. I’ve driven over 1 million miles in all sorts of cars and trucks and I got pulled over driving a red taurus - ugh.

Will never own a red car again.

Yeah but these are moving violations not parking tickets.

They can’t ignore parking tickets in Chicago or they get the boot and have to pay big bucks. You can get away with murder here but not parking tickets.

Take a chill pill.

You should take a little physics into account with your criticisms. If you dont wear a seatbelt, you have a much better chance of being throw through the front windshield. That happened to 2 friends of mine 30 years ago, one was decapitated, the other cut in half.

Motorcycles are quite deadly as well, and riders are often just as ignoratant of physics, which is wierd, because you use physics a lot when riding.
