Chevy has the most cars......

in the LEAST TICKETED TOP 10 ! And NONE in the MOST TICKETED!

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.



10 Least Ticketed Cars
1. Jaguar XJ

The Jaguar XJ gives drivers a smooth ride and an opulent interior. As the least- ticketed car in America, it also seems to provide the ability to fly under radar guns. There's a feature they won't tell you about at the dealership.



2. Chevrolet Suburban

Suburban drivers tend to need their large SUVs for hauling people or towing trailers, not breaking land speed records. So it's not surprising to see it on the list of least-ticketed cars.



3. Chevrolet Tahoe

The Tahoe shares some architecture with the Hummer H2, the most-ticketed car in America. Despite the two having similar sizes, the Tahoe manages not to attract as much police attention.



4. Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500

It's no shocker to find Chevrolet's heavy-duty trucks among the least-ticketed vehicles. These trucks are usually bought for their towing ability, not for impromptu drag races.



5. Buick Park Avenue

While Buick has recently begun to increase the oomph in their cars, the now- discontinued Park Avenue helped solidify the brand's image as cars for the senior set. No wonder Park Avenue drivers tend not to get very many tickets.



6. Mazda6

The largest car in Mazda's line up, the Mazda6 has plenty of the brand's zoom-zoom, yet still manages to be among the least-ticketed cars. If you love driving sporty sedans but can't take seeing any more red and blue lights in your rearview mirror, the Mazda6 may be just the car for you.



7. Buick Rainier

The now-discontinued Buick Rainier is a largely forgettable attempt at a near- luxury SUV. Maybe that forgettable nature keeps cops from noticing when one commits a traffic offense.



8. Oldsmobile Silhouette

Finding a minivan from Oldsmobile on the list of least-ticketed cars isn't surprising. What's surprising is that anyone is still driving a Silhouette.



9. Buick Lucerne

The Buick Lucerne offers a near-luxury experience at an affordable large car price. Being one of the least-ticketed cars means that the Lucerne's affordability continues after it's bought, thanks to fewer fines and lower insurance rates.



10. GMC Sierra 1500

The GMC Sierra is an attractive truck for work or play. With its ability to haul or tow heavy loads, this truck will do anything you ask it to, including avoiding traffic citations.

I find it weird that H2 is the number one most ticketed vehicle. Hm.

Surprisingly cops do actually care what car you're driving. When I got my first ticket, the cop said to me, and I quote; "You're lucky I gave you the ticket and not one of the other officers. They would have given you the maximum fine just for being a kid in such a nice car." I was 17 at the time in my 07 Mustang GT.

The "least ticketed" list is almost entirely GM. GM FTW!

The "most ticketed" list is almost entirely foreign. I'm just amazed that Honda isn't filling the non-Toyota gaps in there. Don't cops throw the book at riceboys with park benches bolted to their trunklid? I guess not.

The Silverado 1500 is good for flying under the radar if it's stock and not too old. I seemed to be immune to tickets in my mostly stock white/tan Sierra 1500 for a long time...I think it just blended in really well. I think now that it's aging and looking a little beaten, it's not such good camouflage.

Anyway, the car isn't the reason most people get pulled, but it's not completely irrelevant either. If it looks really cool or really bad, it's going to turn heads; cops heads aren't immune. However, there's another component, possibly more important: Each car attracts a certain type of driver. Driving a vehicle from either list won't deliver results if you drive like the typical driver of cars from the opposite list.

That list shows a huge age gap. The most ticketed list is all cars driven by young punks (upper class elitists for the H2), and the least ticketed list is full of cars driven by soccer moms and geriatric patients.

I got pulled over for just driving my brothers 05 stang. He wanted to check the documents to make sure its not a stolen car, "2 Young kids driving a nice car, i want to check the documents, is that a good anough reason for you?" Thats what this officer told me on my birthday, when i was dressed up all nice, in front of a church, and after i politely asked him if i did something wrong.
