Personally, I think it is just an excuse. I had heard all the stories about cops pouncing on red cars and giving them tickets because "red cars look like they are speeding when they aren't" and "red cars catch the cops eye more". But, last year I got a great deal on a little red sports car and bought it against my better judgement; knowing tickets would be in my future. But guess what, I rarely speed (usually within 5 mile of the speed limit); I see and get passed by cops all the time and I have NEVER been pulled over in it! I think it has more to do with how fast the driver goes; than it does with the color of the car!

I've heard that little piece of information about red cars getting stopped more often compared to other color of vehicles. I have not read any formal statistics to back up any conclusion, but if I can hazard an opinion, I think its because its more noticeable than other colors. Red demands attention and in a sea of plain-colored vehicles like silver, gray, black or blue, a red car streaking at a certain speed is more likely to catch the attention of a cop than any other car.
