So, female drivers get more tickets than male drivers. Or is this statistic skewed because the cops like to pull over the good looking females in the good looking Benz.

I know they weren't refering to me cause they mentioned rich people and SL in the same sentence...:)

but I believe your obsevation is correct, and I guess they didn't fullfill the officers requirements, cause they recieve more tickets than men,, the men probobly tell them they just got through a divorce and the officer takes pitty...:)

nice to hear from you again,
