  • Bumper Stickers

    2010 - 10.19

    Bumper stickers on cars are often a dangerous thing. While it is correct that you should exercise your right to free speech, there can be hazards.

    I once had an accident trying to read the bumper stickers on the car in front of me, if you are going to put a bumper sticker on your automobile, make sure the letters are big enough to be read at a safe distance.

    Also, left-wing liberal statements (My personal favorites) can get you profiled by bored cops just looking for trouble.

    Drug related statements are a sure fire way to get you profiled and pulled over and your vehicle searched. I used to have a VW bus with Grateful Dead stickers on it, boy I learned quickly that was a mistake. If you travel through many states where the politics change, certain bumper stickers may upset the locals.

    It is a campaign year and this whole “I support this vs. that candidate” genre can get your car keyed in parking lots.

    And some bumper stickers just advertise your stupidity to the driving world.

    Remember the famous “Baby on board” stickers? How many children did that save? As if it made caffeinated, late, commuters any more careful.

    When it comes to bumper stickers on cars, you are what you say. It’s not like their subtitled with your actual intentions.

    Also, consider what they do to the resale value of your car, You will never get those things off when you sell the car. And if you do happen to out grow the saying on the sticker, or you picked the losing candidate from a political race years ago, once again you are telling people you picked the wrong horse or that you thought the dark side served cookies or something else equally as stupid.
