What Car Gets the Most Tickets?

Looks like Subaru WRX drivers are the winners! The Boxster ranks way down at #309 on the list.

Anyone have an interesting run in with the men in blue lately?

Which vehicles get the most traffic tickets?

I guess its a good thing to be below average in something
911s are even lower ranked 447, but Cayennes are 69

The Nissan Altima sticks out as a car I have personally written many moving violations to.

Not too surprising on the WRX looking at the typical owner/driver. Young, dumb and full of.......

Tickets are issues to large vehicles very often as well as your ricers. Maybe it's the attitude toward the cop from your supra fighters or maybe it's that attitude toward driving. Head out to the country and the number of porsches you see doubles but away from the cities less and less asain cars can be spotted.

Funny this was just on the morning news. Subaru WRX, Pontiac GTO, Scion FRS, Toyota Supra, Subaru Tribeca. No Porsches all of them the under 25 age hot cars. Can't remember all the time I've been edged on by the first 3, at a light or on the highway.

Sorry, double post - computer going crazy. You'd think by now that Microsoft could get it right.

FJ Cruiser

Funny, I have never driven one of these. I have a 1978 FJ-40 that I bought new. It is in a severe state of restoration right now with that big ole 2F out for a rebuild. I can tell you that a FJ-40 above 65 sounds like it is coming apart with it's 4:11 gearing....and in Lo 4W lock you would be hard pressed to get it above 30mph....but it will climb a hill that you cannot ascend walking upright
