Skip to comments.Sign of road rage may be on bumper

Three horrors await Americans who get behind the wheel of a car for a family road trip this summer: the spiraling price of gas, choruses of "Are we there yet?"and the road rage of fellow drivers.
Divine intervention might be needed for the first two problems, but science has discovered a solution for the third:
Watch out for cars with bumper stickers.
That's the surprising conclusion of a recent study by Colorado State University social psychologist William Szlemko.

Or a spoiler. That's why they call them "spoilers": they spoil the look of the vehicle.
The people with that idiotic sticker are the first ones to go ape**** when someone utters a prayer out loud.
Mine says: “WE’RE SCREWED 08”
80% of the time, a car with more than 4 bumper stickers is a liberal’s car.
Although I’ve seen a few cars loaded w/conservative stickers too.
My favorite: “Stop honking, I’m reloading”.
I hate that particular sticker................
Ah..cum’on, that doesn’t count...It has a Mass. Plate on it..normal for them.....
We have a lib democrat here whose bumper has so many stickers on it you can’t see the crome. Also her (HER!) trunk and back fenders are covered with lib stickers.
Massachusetts? I’m shocked - not. I drive I-93, and sight Moonbats daily.
Simply countered by...
I laugh every time I see that sticker, because it would get you shot in some parts of the world, where it’d be deemed blasphemous to have the sacred crescent share a graphic with a Star of David.
People who put bumper stickers on their cars are seeking identity and validation.
The more stickers the more mentally unstable the driver, IMO.
Hello RockinRight,can you tell me how to post a picture please?
Where do I get one of those?!?!?!?!.................
There’s a car in my area that has a bunch of peacenik type stickers on it, free speech, all that...oh, plus the “get Fox News of the air” sticker.
Only if it is a Christian prayer.
To be fair, most of the Masshole cars I've seen with a lot of stickers required them to keep the rust together.
Love it send me one
My bumper sticker says:
“My Marine can pick off your Honor Student at a Click and a Half”
Hah! There’s a car I see parked in a driveway every day, on my drive into the office, that looks just like the one in the picture. There’s so many stickers they run around the corners and are making their way forward on the car. And it’s all the usual hodge-podge of liberal causes. What kind of car? An older subaru of course.
I’ve always imagined that actually talking to that person would be nearly impossible. The irony is that there’s always some sticker about being “open minded”. Heh. Yeah, right.
I’ve always thought bumper stickers are nothing more than magnets for vandalisim.
I love pulling up next to one of those drivers whose cars have numberous lib bumper stickers on it. I'll roll down my windows, crank up the volume with Rush on and grin at them. :-)
I agree with you about that Clinton sticker. I was in the navy, and I was near Baghdad, Sept. 2004-Mar. ‘05. While I was there, I rarely heard the sailors and marines complain about our presence, in Iraq. After I returned to the U.S., I heard many people, who haven’t served in the military, complain about it.
I have a bumper sticker that says, “Guns don’t kill people; abortion clinics kill people.”
Ha! My cell phone ring tone is “Infidel”.
Have you heard it? Google it - I think you can preview it on some sites. Hilarious.
I do recall reading that some felt it was discriminatory to limit choices to male or female on applications such as a driver’s licenses. Perhaps it was that group.
The only bumper sticker I thought of putting on my car was a “Run Hillary!” bumper sticker....on the front of my car.
I don’t put any stickers on my car. I have sort of a herd animal mentality about it. I’m out there on the savannah, travelling as necessary, and I don’t want to give anyone any reason to single me out about anything. I don’t want the cops to have any special reason to look at me. I don’t want thieves or psychos or anyone to draw any conclusions from my car. I want to be incognito. I want safe passage to and from my destination. I want to travel unmolested. Hence, a clean, unmarked vehicle.
It is hazardous to put any GOP or conservative stickers on your car, since the Libs(being kind and thoughtfull people) will vandalize your car.
So to retaliate..I now carry a couple long roofing nails in my pocket..just in case I see a Prious with a BO sticker.
So all you Libs out there take note...two flats in the same day is a real pain.
I've never put a sticker on my car(s), ever. Living in the Seattle area, the last thing you'd want to do is to leave a car unattended with anything remotely conservative on the car.
What I have done though is to put a Bush sticker on a piece of cardboard inside the window, then I would stash it when I park someplace. But I've never been really into stickers anyway. I've never thought that they accomplish anything.
My husband works with a guy who has an old beater Volvo wagon that he wants to get rid of. I’m dying to buy it just so I can cover it with right-wing stickers and confuse/annoy the he!! out of people!
“Love it send me one “
It was given to me by a friend. He said he found it on Drudge’s site.
Found it! http://www.werescrewed08.com/
They both say the same thing: SELF-DEFENSE IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.
And yes, my car has been sabotaged a time a two, but it's worth it to me. I get far more thumbs up than anything else, tho. Could be because I live in Texas.....
No image. A window sticker supporting a local clinic that helps women with unexpected pregnancies. It's a Catholic organization that is committed to saving unborn babies.
When I was young a foolish, I used to have one that said "Yes, as a matter of fact, I do own the whole d*** road"
Yup, mine is the same way for the same reasons. My car would be keyed at minimum if I had conservative leaning bumper stickers on my car in the Rochester, NY area.
My favorite is ‘ The only reason some people are alive is because it is ILLEGAL to kill them “
closer to 99% in my locale. I was just thinking earlier this week, if there are more than four bumper stickers, it must be a lib.
