Do you have any bumper stickers on your car?

-------------------------

I'm not a huge fan of stickers but we do because I realized they make it easier to find the car in a parking lot lol!

On my van we have those silly little family stickers, but ours have all Duke basketball stuff. Not a fan of these kinds of stickers but DH's sister bought it for us for our new van and we didn't want to hurt her feelings


I also have a kitty skull and crossbones with a pink bow (can't find a picture of it, the guy who makes them says its his original design)


DH's Civic has a submarine sticker (the bottom one, but the blue of the top one):

No, none. I joke with dh about those family stickers, that we'd have to wrap ours around to the side!

My new SUV no. My van sort of. It came with this ugly 'racing' sticker on the gas cap that I never took off.

We don't have the family ones because DH thinks it's not safe for us being military. I can see his point.

No stickers so not a fan because when they start to fade from the weather ugh they look bad. I do get a kick out of the family ones they are cute and I love trying to figure out boy, girl, baby, or animal? I do want o get some dance magnets those since my daughter is a dancer.

Nope. I had wanted to get one I saw that said "My kids aren't minimums, we rear face to the max!" But I never got around to ordering it. And they're both forward facing now so wouldn't really make sense lol

I do not, and for OpSec reasons we don't put anything on our vehicles. You can tell too much information from those people who have all that stuff on their cars. Normally how many are in their family, where a child goes to school/gymnastics/dance, etc. If they play sports, if they are a military family, what charities they choose to donate too, etc. Just not for us.

I agree that there is a limit, but I don't think one or two stickers is a big deal. I'm a HUGE advocate of Opsec (being a submarine family we have CRAZY strict opsec rules because our guys need to be hidden at all times-- WE don't even know where our husbands are when they're out), and as many meetings as I've been to they have never addressed normal bumper stickers. They do, however, address the "I LOVE MY SAILOR," "PROUD NAVY WIFE," and "HALF OF MY HEART IS IN ___________" stickers because *those* have been deemed unsafe and potential targets.

Good for you for taking it an extra step though

I am anti anything on my car. I don't know why, I just don't like to decorate it. And the family stickers make me nervous because I park in the driveway and I don't want anyone driving by to know I have kids and/or how many in the house or whether I have a dog or not, etc.

opsec is military safety. I forget exactly what it stands for but it's basically like the 'rules'. Don't discuss personal stuff online, don't disclose when/where/what your spouse is doing. Don't make yourself a target, don't advertise overseas that you're in the US military... things like that.

I have one that shows I'm a member of the ABCA (American Border Collie Association) and also have a license plate frame that says "agility dogs on board".

No bumper stickers for us.

I used to have one when my twins were little that said "Walk on the Wild Side. Have Twins!" I got so many comments on it. lol

I know this isn't a bumper sticker, but I read a statistic once that the cars that have the baby on board signs are more likely to get into accidents. (Not necessarily by their own accord, but because most people just don't care.)

No stickers on either of our cars. I do have the suction cup "baby on board" thing that you can barely see from the outside lol. I like having that too because when my brother was training to be a paramedic he said it can help let people know more quickly in an accident if there are more people in the car because sometimes it's hard to tell at first glance with tinted windows and stuff.
