      The lime green 98 Buick on 24"s gets my attention. A new red mustang GT that looks factory, not any more than any other car.

This particular troll has done nothing to mitigate his status as a troll, but really has enhanced it. Once more Troll Camaro, disappear for a while, a good long while.

          Certain cars catch my attention more, but not for enforcement action. Azteks, because I can't believe anyone who can pass the eye test to drive can pick such an ugly car, for example. I like to ride, so I usually check out any bikes. Colors don't matter unless its some really off the wall color that nature never intended.

          I polled my own tickets for an 8 month period one time over a discussion if SUVs made people drive like tools, and counted how many cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans I cited. Also looked at color. Silver was the most written, which stands to reason since BMV stats also say gray/silver is the most common color currently on the road. There wasn't much difference between the colors and car types, although oddly enough vans seemed to be high compared to the numbers of them on the road. Not sure if was statistically significant, though.

            I look harder at tricked out cars that grab your attention more. Tinted, rims, low profile tires etc. Also seats laid back so far you can barely see the driver, theres usually a reason I find to check on them.

                  The worst offenders? The Smart For Two - used for most drive-bys around here.

                  Seriously, though, I notice old cars in good condition, 'cause they're neat.

                  For LE purposes:
                  - very dirty cars (of course my POV fits that description most of the time)
                  - older/cheaper cars with new/expensive components
                  - cars with old, beat up plates
                  - personalized plates
                  - any car in front of me at a red light that I can run before the light changes
                  If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

                      Never have understood the theory that red vehicles somehow attract LEO attention......
                      It's more what the car does than what type it is.

                        Physiologically, the visual cortex in the brain is more sensitive to movement than color. Admittedly some colors are higher profile in the human mind but what will stick out is movement or more likely movement that is different. In other words a car traveling at 90 mph in a group of cars doing 65 mph is going to get more attention than than the herd of cars at 65. Rapidly changing lanes with a jerky movement is also going to gain attention. Single vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed attract more attention. Colors are going to be secondary identifiers with some more visible than others depending on lighting and weather conditions.

                        So a theory of "Red cars get more tickets," in my experience would be false.

                          I, myself, have never profiled in any way. What is amazing, if you were to check my track history, I have only ever stopped Camaros. I don't really care what color the cars that I stop are, but I especially like when they are driven by trolls. I get really exited if the drivers are also celebrities, because I can probably get some free tickets to a "big game". Sometimes, they are federal LEOs, so they get the biggest tickets of all!

                            Yeah I have a follow up question based on the above post. How do I clean my morning coffee off my touch screen MDC?

                              cars with multiple equipment violations gets my attention much more than yellow Corvettes.

                                personally, i don't care what color, make or model a car/suv is! i don't care who is behind the wheel either. what i care about is paying a attention to what made me take a second look at vehicle for me to stop them.. the real offenders are the idiots who stand out like, missing the stop sign, no turning on red, running a red light, doing a u turn. with everything i mentioned where its clearly posted and the driver still does it! and most of the time.. they are the ones with no drivers license for what ever reason! going into a area or coming out of a area that as a cop, u are asking yourself.. hum.. what is making that person coming or going? are they lost, visiting a friend or family member, drugs, prostitution, etc??
