why are cops more likely to pull over flashy cars instead of normal everyday Vehicles ?
Granddad in his 09 white Jetta drives 10 below the speed limit and Ricky in his bling encrusted BMW 666, LED infused M3 with leather interior and 3245W audio system is showing off to Marcy, his love of his life after his BMW. Ricky is tearing up the road at 15 over and frightening grandad with his erratic lane changes.
really? whats your source for this?
Depends on what you mean by flashy. I knew a drug dealer who would only buy BMW’s because cops wouldn’t bother pulling them over thinking they had the means to fight a ticket. Though I could also see cops thinking theyd have the cash to pay a fine without a hassle, so…
A flashy bright colored car is designed to be seem, cops are human, they notice it too. A rumbling large v8 engine on a muscle car or sports car gets noticed, where a silver Camry going the same speed might not. All other factors being equal.
And as others have said, people who drive sports cars do so because they the power and performance.
Flashy cars are far more likely to be driven by teenagers/young adults, who are subsequently far more likely to have, say, Weed or other drugs in their car.
