Owners of luxury sedans and coupes might want to tone it down a few Sammy Hagars. Turns out several models of swankmobiles made the recently released list of "most-ticketed cars on the road" according to MyFoxLA. reports that "drivers of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class two-door luxury convertible are four times more likely to get a ticket than the average driver.The Toyota Camry Solara coupe came in second with its drivers 3.5 times more likely to be ticketed. The Scion tC coupe was third with driver 3.4 times more likely to be ticketed. The rest of the top five included the Hummer H2/H3 (2.9 times) and the Scion xB (2.7 times)."

And don't put on make-up, or eat foods or text your friends about the food you're eating while putting on make-up. They've been giving out a lot of tickets for that too.
