    Family Stickers on Vehicles

    Has anyone seen these stupid family stickers on the back window of people's cars? How dumb can you be? You may as well invite some perv to try and get your child in the car with them. You're giving them your kids friggin name, your name, your pets name in some cases, and the kind of car you drive!! A guy that knows all of that has a major advantage if he's trying to abduct your child. If you have these stickers, do me a favor, drop the "It'll never happen to me" attitude and protect your family. You guys can call me paranoid if you want, but why give anyone anymore ability to harm your family than they already have. Am I off base here?

    It's always kinda bothered me, the quantity of information some people give away with their window/bumper stickers. Unscrupulous people could abuse this info in some cases.



    Nothing on my truck but one American flag sticker. That's it. Not even an NRA sticker... don't want anyone thinking there might be a gun in the cab they could steal.

    Ha! Notice that "Daddy" and "Mommy" are going by pseudonyms while hanging the kids out to dry!

    Although I get the point I don't see it as a likely danger but your point is certainly worth consideration.

    I shy away from that stuff because the last thing I want is some rookie cop getting all froggy if he has to pull me over.

    I've never seen them. But I agree with you; and you're not being paranoid.

    i'm not a fan, because they are kind of tacky. i'll admit, though, that i am anti-bumper sticker. as for whether these stickers will lead to child abduction, i tend to doubt it.

    I have the Bone Family on mine - they're skeletons - but no names.

    So sue me . . . it's a window . . . and I put some stickers on it.
    OH MY ****ING GOD THE GODDAMN WORLD IS GOING TO END
    I use to have a huge kickass display of skull stickers all over - but that was the old truck. The new truck isn't broken in yet. It's just the family for now (2 dogs, 1 cat, 4 kids (2 teens boys, 1 young boy and 1 young girl), 2 adults)
    . . . they're like these: Right down to the mohawks, it's pretty accurate

    You can't fix stupid. After all, a young child may not associate "stranger" with a person that knows their name. I get a kick out of those that plaster their vehicles with bar stickers too, inviting those "ramdom" stops for DUI/DWI checks. 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.
