Aww.....

How sad.

Owners of Hummer SUVs were 4.63 times more likely to get a traffic ticket than the average driver, concludes a yearlong study by a company that helps insurers identify risks.

ISO Quality Planning, the San Francisco company that studied the records of 1.7 million drivers, compiled a list of ticket magnets that confirmed some long-held notions: Owners of the 507-horsepower Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG and similarly muscular CLK63 AMG received outsized numbers of tickets, as did the generally young owners of the relatively inexpensive Scion tC, xB and xA and the Audi A4 sports sedan.

It's hard on one's feelings to drive an ostentatious overly chromed expensive gas-guzzling monstrosity and get mocked....

Omg! Lol!

I only stare and laugh. Giving the finger to someone around in Los Angeles County could get you shot....

Whenever my sister sees someone driving a Humvee, she says (not so they can hear, but anyhow), "Sorry about your penis."

Mahakal: great line, but please note: Hummer ≠ Humvee.
