(Newser) – Hummers and Scion’s tC top a list of cars most likely to receive moving violations, the Los Angeles Times reports. A study links tickets to size and power—the Hummer is one of the biggest “cars” on the road—and driver age, which applies to the Scion, marketed to younger folk. Hummer drivers are almost 5 times more likely to be ticketed than the average motorist.
