    Just read a report that us Chevy/GMC owners are or should be proud or upset about this. The Number 1 ticketed TRUCK is the HUMMER H2, because of its size and the bold statment it makes. The NUMBER 2 least ticketed TRUCK is the SUBURBAN, the NUMBER 10 least ticketed TRUCK is the GMC SIERRA.
    The Top Ten ticketed only had one American made vehicle as listed above, all the rest are imports like the SCION XA,XB,TC. Eight of the ten in the least ticketed are American made. So what does this tell us? Hell, I don't know, but the Suburban and the Sierra listings are cool, eh?????:great:

    Many times it is a driver / vehicle combonation that dictates how fast they go. For instance if I see a new BMW in my side view mirrior in slight traffic I have 20:1 0dds that says he'll be on my rear bumper in 5 seconds. I have 50:1 odds that says he's gonna get mad when I hit with the windo washer spray and waste his detail job.

    It might just be me but from experience driving my service truck every day I've noticed the more expensive the vehicle the better the odds it'll be speeding, and if were in heavy traffic the odds are even greater that same driver will try to cut off my bigger truck with less than 10' in front of me and 10 car lengths behind me.
    I have a theory that people dont care how much danger they put themselves in they refuse to be behind a big truck no matter how fast or slow traffic is moving and the fact that the trucks speed is pretty much regulated by the traffic flow.
    I know it aint right but when I see expensive vehicles starting to cut me off without thinking about it I start steering into them, and I have a real bad habit of riding behind them blowing my horn for the next 5 minutes, expecially when their on their cell phones.

    Got pulled over by the cops only once, and that was because "my window wasn't scraped off good enough"... Have yet to get a ticket though.

    Here is the list I think you read.

    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.

    tbplus10, I have enormous amount of respect for you and your partners, because you carry all the weight the will if I am stupid will crush the living Sh.. out of me if we are in a accident. I also have been carried through several states by the Over-the-Road drives to get me to my destination quicker and safer. Please just do not have the respect or consideration for truck drivers and at what mercy they are at when drives don't care. So my hat is off to you guys..... Yes, this was the list, but didn't what to fill the page with all the NON CHEVY/GMC owners rankings, but I guess others will appreciate the list....Thanks.

    I have avoided a few

    Interesting; I would have sworn I was about to get busted a few times after blowing through radar about 15 over and I'm always amazed that I'm not stopped. I'm not pushing my luck and most of the time I cruise about 7 - 9 over.
