You are what you drive?

http://www.qualityplanning.com/ pointed to by http://blog.wired.com/cars/2009/01/hummers-can-hid.html has an interesting article.

Apparently you are 42x more likely to get a ticket driving a Hummer H2/H3 as you are by driving a Jaguar XJ. Apparently they do this based on the number of miles driven per ticket. Sooooooooo……

What does this stat say? Could it be XJs are only driven in the country away from the prying eyes of police? Or that the owners of these cars are known by-and-large by the police and given preferential treatment? Are the XJ blue blood drivers just a better breed of driver? Are H2/H3 FUV drivers simply, by proof of buying the vehicle, deficient in all ways and hence the tickets? Too many possibilities for my poor brain preventing me from making an informed decision.
