    That hardly takes up any room at all. Now this is a danger:

    What about Facebook or Twitter? Do I need to know when everyone is going to take a dump? Absolutely not

    : You guys crack me up.
    It's just my observations This one woman with 3 kids in her car with the stickers (plus a dog, cat, and a fish) almost ran me off the road because she was swerving on the phone on the interstate. I used to drive a minivan before I had a car and there isn't anything wrong with that, but Lord knows it took almost all my strength to not flip her the finger. The only reason I didn't was because she had kids in her car, so I just honked to get her to correct herself and she instead gave me the finger... So much for trying to be modest

    Kind of reminds me of this.

    fast forward to 1:00
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Although I don't think it presents any immediate danger.

    But I do give to the FOP and State Troopers. So I have a Punch Tag from them that is attached to my Plate. Like one of their Top donation items in exchange. Instead of just a sticker. The State troopers one is a Sticker that goes in the back windshield. I get pulled over less when being followed by LE's either that or they get use to seeing my vehicle.

    I think you might be overreacting a little bit, since the majority of child abductions are by people who know they child, so they already know all that information. So the increased risk is likely very minor.

    However, I'm also not a fan of cluttering up my car with stupid crap, so it's not really an issue for me regardless.

    I don't care if people want to plaster their car with that kind of stuff. Chances are they're parked in a garage at home, anyway, and personally I think people take a bigger risk being on Facebook or having important sites - like banks - saving their passwords for convenience. The odds are so much higher you'll get your identity stolen, which can put your kids and you in the poor house, than someone will kidnap your kids. Kidnapping is like most other crimes. If the criminal really wants it they will likely get it one way or another. Hackers don't really target individuals - they just look for the easy score - but other criminals do, especially kidnappers.

Many times clues abound as to what might be left inside a parked vehicle as well; gun club, car stereo, hot rod accessory and musical instrument clues abound.
    I've got stickers all over the driver's side rear window (not the back window) and good luck to anyone trying to get the stuff out of my Road Runner. Unless they can pop the trunk and hot wire the car they're screwed. I generally leave it unlocked, too, there's really nothing in thecab they can get easily and I never leave it where someone can dismantle it without someone being a little curious about what's going on. Oh, I guess they could steal the radio but not the hidden CD jukebox.

    Otherwise, though, I leave my cars as neutral as possible. ((The daily drivers, anyway. You can't hide a Torred - aka, Hemi Orange - car no matter how much you try! ). I can't tone down the noise anymore than I have without sacrificing performance but I leave everything else looking as stock as possible so the cops don't get the wrong idea - even if they should. *evil grin*
