Ah that's not what I was saying... the make of the car definitely does impact what's going on I said that in my post. Other contributing factors of course would be that he's a young male, possibly the colour of the car allows him to be more noticable but maybe the cop just saw his car, or heard the engine, or heard his music etc. etc. I do agree that he was probably singled out from the 'herd' so to speak based on particular factors but to jump to the conclusion that 'red sportscars' get pulled over more often is a bit premature in my opinion. As well you would be surprised at how well the cops can spot the driver of a car lol. I was going to talk about how race can also influence getting tickets and even how it influences being able to beat the ticket after you get it but it's apparently 'racially insensitive' to talk about that stuff.He's basically saying that, yes; he's just doing a really bad job of it.
As for your hypothesis, it seems odd to me that
1] you would accept that the cops are possibly singling him out, you've just picked a different factor, namely his age & gender as opposed to his car's model and colour. Why would reject one and accept the other? I would have thought you'd unilateraly reject the idea of cops being biased in their selection.
2] you would think it plausible that a cop would ignore something so easily recognizable at a distance as the colour of the car, yet see through the windshield and be able to identify the gender and age of the driver. It seems to me a pretty good assumption that a cop decides he is going to stop a car when the car is still quite far away.
