The same company that studied which cars are most likely to get you a ticket also determining which cars are most impervious to the police. Compared to the norm, the most XX sedan will put you at 60 percent less risk of a ticket, while the most resistant-to-the-law sedan will make you 89 percent less likely to be pulled over. That will practically turn you into a covert operative as far as the law concerned.

However, with four sedans, four SUVs, an MPV, and a pickup truck in the mix, you don't have much chance of combining uninterrupted driving and looking good. Luckily the Jag XJ is on the list, and that's good enough for us. Click the link to check out the rest of the cars too slippery for the long arm of Johnny law.

      AOL Autos?!? Who the hell still uses AOL? I thought they closed doors long time ago.

      The list of course does not surprise me one bit. Its actually almost identical to the posted here some months ago. Probably just a rehash of someone else's data.

      Wait, what's that I hear? Is that the sound of AOL doors closing for good?

        One would think Mr. Ramsey would do a better job of checking for previous posts especially when article he links to was released in March!

      How come you didn't post this back in November when Jalopnik did?
        • 5 Years Ago
        They still didn't post it. Its a glorified click maker for sister site AOL Autos.

      Uh, if #1 is tied, then the next place is #3. If the next 2 are tied, they arent tied for #2, they are tied for #3. Then, the following number is #5, not number 3. Why would the top 10, end in #8??? Idiots.

      Most of them are crappy overpriced american car that cant go over 100mph, that is driven by soccer moms or dumb ghetto people that put 30in rims on them to make them capable of going even less.

        The ignorance in your post is spilling onto my keyboard.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'm pretty sure they failed statistics.

      Either:
      It should be "60% as likely" / 40% less likely
      and "89% as likely" / 11% less likely

      or:
      They wrote the entire list backwards.

        Thats exactly what I was thinking, they got it arse-about.

      Eight of the vehicles on the list are GM. hmmm
        • 5 Years Ago

      God those Jags are HOT. Why did the new ones have to go ugly?
      • 5 Years Ago
      C'mon AB! You can do better than this.... While you're at it, why not post the similar posts for MSNBC-Autos (oh, wait, you're not owned by them)

      OK, last point wasn't fair.

      But seriously, we're avid auto fans ... why bore us with these stupid lists than are put-out from organisations or writers that have no genuine interest or even knowlege of cars.

      If this was a serious article, they would present a weighted list of cars not just based on numbers. Why the heck are they pitting entire line-ups vs model years? Do you really think a 2009 Mazda 6 is signifiantly less likely to get a ticket than say a Toyota Camry or a let's be adventurous, a 2008 Mazda 6?

      Where are the 10 Fiesta Movement Fiestas on this list?

      Off topic, but I want to send a congratulations to Alan Mullaly. Coming to Ford, he still had not completed his last big project, the 787 at Boeing. It was plagued with delays and problems with the revolutionary outsourcing manufacturing system. But all of that turned around in a big way today when the 787 took flight magnificently.

      Congratulations to Mullaly, I hope you were able to be there to see it.

        I guess they think I'm either off topic and don't like that or I'm giving a backhanded compliment. And maybe they're right on the second part. I have felt Mulally is given a lot of leeway for just showing new things without delivering. Especially given how the 787 went, it seems like people presume success too much to me when it comes to Mulally.

        But.. the best way to shut up skeptics like me is to deliver. And Mulally is starting to deliver at Ford and (oddly later than his Ford success) his works are paying off at Boeing now too. The 787 still has to show it is a commercial success and not just a technical triumph, but one step at a time. Today is a huge step, an enormous corner turned.

      Cops pullover people cause they are dumb sucka fools with nothing but ignorant written into there tiny brains

        "nothing but ignorant written into there tiny brains"

        Irony alert

      Yea except this is no where close to a scientific study. Even if you took into account percentage of cars on the road vs tickets, it would be impossible to account for driving style.

      Now my opinion...not based on a scientific study.
      Having driven tons of cars, about 25k miles and 80 mile round trip commute daily, i can tell you that most of these cars drivers just don't drive fast or aggressively.

      When they do...they do get tickets, I passed a parked radar-ing cop going 90ish in a 50 in my dads Porsche 997 and he pulled over the minivan i obviously passed going about 80ish (it's a road that drops from 65 to 50, the bottom of the NJ parkway where the lights are, for those know know the area). Speeding in a minivan is more dangerous than in a 997, and they know it.
