Mercedes-Benz Sedans Among Most Ticketed Cars

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — If you’re the proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz, congratulations – your car may be among the 10 most ticketed cars, according to an insurance industry study.

Mercedez-Benz is well represented on the list, occupying the No. 1, No. 6 and No. 9 spots on the list.

Verisk Analytics, which supplies data to insurers, found that the cars aren’t necessarily a magnet for cops in a ticketing mood. However, the cars on the list apparently attract drivers who like to drive fast.

The Mercedes-Benz SL class convertible topped the list, with the study finding SL drivers get ticketed about four times as often as the average driver.

The Top 10 Cars Most Likely To Get A Ticket:

1. Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible
2. Toyota Camry-Solara Coupe
3. Scion tC Coupe
4. Hummer H2/H3 SUV
5. Scion xB Hatchback
6. Mercedes-Benz CLS-63 AMG Sedan
7. Acura Integra Coupe
8. Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan
9. Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Sedan
10. Volkswagen GTI Hatchback

    That should say “Top 10 Cars”, not “Top 5 Cars”.

    CLK63 Amg……of course, that’s a street legal race car. I’m surprised Dodge Vipers(sh!tboxes), Porsche Carrera Turbos and other fast exotics aren’t on the list. I used to drive a 73 Pinto with “Pimp Shtanky” painted on the side. I used to get pulled over all the time in that thing. I never got a ticket though. i would tell the cops that i have hand herpes before wiping my driver’s license all over my hands. The cops would never want to touch my ID or anything my hand touched.
