Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
Drivers of the Mercedes-Benz SL Class are four times more likely than the average driver to get a ticket.
Forbes rated every model of car sold in the last 10 years
on the likelihood of it getting hit with any kind of traffic violation. Following the SL Class -- which retails at more than $100,000 -- in racking up citations is the ho-hum Toyota Camry, which gets ticketed 3.5 times more than the average car.
Rounding out the top five: the Scion tC (3.4 times more likely to be pulled over), the Hummer H2 (2.9 times) and the Scion xB (2.7 times).
The inclusion of multiple models of the relatively obscure Scion on this list may be because the Toyota-owned line is marketed to younger drivers. Or it just might because its boxy, futuristic
look offends the sensibilities of traffic cops.
