An Update on the Drive a Hummer, Get a Ticket Thread

This is an update, with a chart, on my previous post about the most ticketed vehicles on the road along with some speculation as to why Hummers get the most tickets. What I find the most odd here is that other huge vehicles, like the Tahoe and Suburban on the far opposite side of the ticketing spectrum from rolling idiocy like the Hummer.

The addition of more of the bottom end of the spectrum pokes a great big hole in my theory about larger vehicles being more distanced from the road surface and thus having less of a sense of their speed, if this were true then Suburban and Tahoe drivers would be nearer the top end of the spectrum. So perhaps it really is about the kind of driver that is attracted to the Hummer?
