    Default Bumper Sticker Opinion Please



    Opinions please: Are bumper stickers just silly and tacky these days? Would you put one on your vehicle? Here's why I'm asking:

    The other day while coming down Boulder Canyon I was tailgated by some dummy only using brakes, for the umpteenth time. It occurred to me to get a bumper sticker that says "Visualize Using Low Gear" or similar. As a bonus this could also refer to low gear for off-road especially when placed on an obviously off-road capable vehicle.

    While the person was close enough to read it their mind was likely thick enough for it to not sink in.



    IF you go bumper sticker - keep your paint unblemished. Glass is your option.

    With all the crappy driving I have seen the past year, I too had a few ideas run through my head. Sadly, most who need the instruction, would have no clue if you tried to explain following distance in 5 words or less. Even then, if it came off as snarky, it might give investigators a bad impression if/when it is your turn to get hit.

    My last draft is/was "Tailgating will not make me faster."

    In replying to this thread, I'm thinking a (more) sterile message might be in order:
    "Following too Closely"
    C.R.S. 42-4-1008

    That is my passive/aggressive way of saying "want more rope?"

    Yeah I had the same concern when I thought about a sticker that says “5 Over isn’t Fast Enough??”. Guaranteed to get a ticket instead of a warning.
