Bumper Crop: My Two Cents on Sticking It
Spare Change | June 20, 2008 | David J. Aland

Posted on 06/22/2008 3:53:24 PM PDT by Natty

The Journal of Applied Social Psychology provided a little illumination lately to understanding road rage. In a study by Drs. Szlemko, Benfield, Bell, Deffenbacker, & Troup (which sounds more like a remarkably diverse law firm than a medical study team), researchers found that the more bumper stickers on a car, the more likely the driver is to behave dangerously on the road. Sort of puts that obnoxious “COEXIST” sticker in a whole new context, doesn’t it?

The doctors found that things like fuzzy dice, stuffed toys, seat covers, and bumper stickers were all ways that drivers personalize their cars – and that the greater the personalization, the greater the likelihood that they would consider their vehicles to be “primary territory” (places like bedrooms and bathrooms). Therefore, even when out in “public territory” (places like roads, sidewalks, and parks), the drivers would tend to treat both the car and the environs more defensively, and more aggressively so.

“Territory markers” such as bumper stickers were found to be “significant predictors” of road rage. Furthermore, “only the number …[and] not their content” counted – “…better than vehicle value, [or] condition.” In short, the junker covered with “Give Peace A Chance” variations was more likely to house a road warrior than the Jag with a single “Support our Troops” ribbon.

Considering the number of “Kerry/Edwards” stickers still seen around here, one can only conclude that there must be a lot of riled-up Democrats in town. The old rule that says the worse the car, the worse the driver won’t hold up anymore, unless that Ford is festooned with adhesive wisdom. Similarly, the Law of Gross Tonnage (size counts) may not work unless that extra space has been converted into a bill-board.

But how far does this go? If one refrains from wall-papering the finish of one’s car (another way of treating the car as valuable personal property), does that skew the findings? May we expect better behavior from drivers that fret more about what their wax-job says about them than what their bumpers do? Are they the stealth combatants on the asphalt battlefield, the ones you see every weekend buffing the hood and muttering things like “my precious…”?

It would be nice to have a few more details. Is there a difference between the emotional state of someone who hangs fuzzy dice or an air freshener from their rear-view mirror and someone who hangs beads, rosaries, or CDs? What about differences between cheap terry-cloth seat covers and those bed-of-nails wooden massage seats?

But the study says that content is really not the issue, just quantity. The more stuff you put in and on your car, the more likely you are to be tempted to stuff it up someone’s tailpipe when riled. In this context, a Teletubby is no different than a plastic patron saint, and an Obama sticker is no different than one saying “Reality Sucks.” (OK, that may have been a moot comparison…)

But if the driver who has too much to say is the one most likely to fly into a rage, what about those of us who are forced to read all the tired trite tripe tattooed to their trunks and tailgates? Isn’t there a risk of us getting so fed up with the other guy’s opinion that we may, ourselves, become the enraged ones?

Of course, now that this study is out, it will quickly become part of the collective cultural wisdom. Anyone with more than one bumper sticker will be viewed with suspicion by everyone else on the road. The police may actually start profiling for cars whose sticker-count surpasses certain norms. The guy with sixteen patriotic slogans on his car may find he gets pulled over more often than the guy with only “Death to America” on his bumper. Think that’s a little far-fetched? Go through the security check point at your local airport.

This is obviously a crisis already. Congress should do something. How about a mandatory cap on stickers? Manufacturing standards for non-adhesive car finishes? How about a system of “chrome credits” and offsets? Maybe we could subsidize sticker makers to let their printers lay fallow for a season? Perhaps a windfall tax on the makers of the most popular stickers? What about designating “no sticking” lanes on the road?

Nothing’s simple anymore. Many used to wonder what the bird poop on the trunk would do to the paint job – now we have to wonder what it may say about us?

Big difference in people from the 50’s that hung fuzzy dice in their windows and people that do it today. It was an easy and free world in the 50’s. Today, people are trying to stay alive. Lots of pressure out there. It’ll all come loose one of these days.....God help us.
