    I see them and always think "Definitely Mom's Car" LOL. I have never seen anybody put their kids' names--that is really stupid since kids may think a stranger is safe if they know their name--but I do see the stickers daily. A lot of them seem to be with the kids' interests like soccer or dance or whatever.

    Yeah, having the names on there is not wise.

    This is just an observation, but the vast majority of vehicles that have those are minivans and SUVs that are driven by average soccer moms that are constantly on a cellphone when they drive. Due to always being on a phone the tend to drive horribly. I would imagine that if they cared about their stick family they would drive safer.

    There are children everywhere anyway. It's not like a perv. has a hard time finding where there ar some children.

    Such stickers are common around here. They show pride in family.

    How is that more dangerous than a sticker that says "My child is an honor student at xxxxxxx Elementary school?" I would think what would most be dangerous would be leaving a tricycle and other little children's toys in the yard. Because you are telling where this is a child sometimes out - maybe alone for a while - playing.

    Re: Family Stickers on Vehicles

    I am extremely anti-bumper sticker. I wouldn't put a bumper sticker on my car if you paid me. I think they look tacky. I get so frustrated when I see someone driving a $70,000 Lexus, and they have the back plastered with bumper stickers.

    To answer the OP, though - I think it's not a safe thing to do. Especially for little kids. Honestly, though, I've never seen the stickers with the kids' names below them. I see them stick figure families all the time, but never with the names on them.

    The only bumper sticker I ever saw that I liked was actually a huge window sticker that covered the entire back window of an SUV - it said CDC Zombie Eradication Team. I thought it was cool. Not cool enough to put on my car, but cool all the same.

    I don't know about dangerous, but every time I see them, I think control freak mother who lives vicariously through her children. Making her daughter(s) go to beauty pageants and crap like that.

    Re: Family Stickers on Vehicles

    I see it as no more dangerous than putting your childs picture on facebook or some other internet site with their names posted saying something like "aww isn't timmy cute!"

I like the Star Wars ones.
    I'm a sticker nut - I use to have my fav-band emblems:

    Type O Negative, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails - etc etc etc. Then I went on a detour into Calvin and Hobbs. And after that it was a visit to a bunch of Military / USA things. Then skulls, etc etc.

    I figured why not? I hang pictures in my house to enjoy the view - thusly - I decorate the windows of my vehicles to again enjoy thew view It's a simple thing and unlike tattoos - it is just temporary.

    That - and my kids lick their fingers all the time to do their own art from the inside . . which I never hear anyone complain about, you know. LOL You can ALWAYS tell who has kids just by looking at the state of the vehicle in general - my kids think it's totally awesome fun to hold their hands on the windows when they get frosty so they can melt a hand print through the ice.

    Heavens you two - stereotype much :

    Beauty pageants? Wow - yeah . . . my daughter's in Karate, not the beauty thing. That's ok - I'll forgive you. And none of my kids play soccer and I haven't had so much as had speeding ticket in almost 10 years.

    That's just how it rubs off after having dealt with far too many crazed soccer moms.
