Sorry hummer drivers, but according to MSN news, you have the highest ticket rating!

Drivers of Hummer SUVs were 4.63 times more likely to get a traffic ticket than the average driver, concludes a yearlong study by a company that helps insurers identify risks...

But also on that most-ticketed list were the Subaru Outback..... the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, virtually identical mechanically to their General Motors sibling Hummer, appeared on the least-ticketed list.




Most-ticketed* Rate       Least-ticketed* Rate

Hummer H2/H3    463%     Jaguar XJ sedan 11%

Scion tC        460%     Chevrolet Suburban  16%

Scion XB        403%     Chevrolet Tahoe    21%

Mercedes Benz CLK63 AMG 397%  Chevrolet C/K- 3500/2500 pickup  28%

Toyota Solara Coupe  306%   Buick Park Avenue 32%

Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG 276%   Mazda6  34%

Scion XA   275%             Buick Rainier   37%

Haha, I like how nearly the entire Scion lineup shows up on the most-ticketed side (sans xD). And the two AMGs.

I'm shocked a BMW isn't in the most-ticketed category. Most BMW drivers drive like @$$-holes, in my experience. No offense... Smile
