RE: Cops more merciful on Mercedes drivers?
As a teenage benz driver, I can tell you that I get pulled over a lot for minor things.
After the usual interrogations and questions (usually ending in who actually owns the car - despite private plates with my initals plastered all over them) I routinely leave with no ticket and a recommendation to take off slower/change a brake light etc. No comments made on the borderline legal window/taillight tinting.
I agree with the statement that if you're not a complete tosser to them, you can get away with a lot more. I give them them a smile, joke, then finger as they walk away - it saves a lot of money.
