    Pulled up behind an Audi at a junction today which had a sticker on the boot declaring “Racing makes my dick trickle”.

    Just hope the poor chap doesn’t work in a betting shop.

    What else have we seen recently?

    On the back of a Porsche 911 Turbo – “My other Porsche is a Turbo too”. Slightly different from the usual, My other cars a Porsche I thought

    Van parked round the corner has a FakeTaxi sticker? Unless I’ve got this wildly wrong, that’s a porn site right? Why the f*** would you want everyone you drive past, and all your neighbours to know which porn sites you frequent. Obviously you’ll all want to know how I know it’s a porn site now. Great question.

    Only got the one small sticker on the rear window of my car : Bollocks to Brexit

    Seen plenty of ‘my other car is an XJS’ stickers.
    Not funny at all, unless they’re on an XJS of course 😂😂

    Driving into carlisle one day, behind a 30stone biffer in a peugeot 205, complete with a sticker on the bumper “I ate all the pies” hats off to the fella, I believe him.

    My bumper sticker says ‘Don’t be a dick’
    It’s the motto of a local petrol heads cafe and pub. The the sign says it as you leave.

    Plenty don’t read it mind.

    seen the same sticker on a camper van, with wife and kids on board. Classy. Has a bit of a grim  John Worboys vibe.

    I’ve got ‘My other van is a van’ on both of my vans.

    Seen a sticker of an AT-AT cocking its leg over a stick family with the motto “The Empire doesn’t care about your stick family”

    I saw a WG1WGA sticker on a Fiat 500 in Aberdeen, I wondered if it was meant ironically/a troll.

    You missed the footnote “campers in disguise”.

    Anything to do with driving like a total ****. It ought to be a life time ban just for having a sticker like that. For not only knowing your driving is way below par but for believing that advertising it is a good idea. It’s like a burglar wearing a neon shirt with “don’t like me breaking your windows and nicking stuff dial 999-eat-effluent”.

    The very worst though are those monochrome grey ones fitted to front windows. No text or graphics just a plain sheet of dark grey sticker. 🤬

    When I rode around Oz I kept seeing a sticker that said something like ‘****, all along the east coast’ or something very similar. It seemed to be a parody of a lifestyle sticker I saw around Brisbane.

    despite looking for one as a momento of my trip I never did see it again. Probably for the best as I have a lot of stickers not actually stuck to anything. Madame thinks I’m weird 🤔

    I used to have a lot of “No Fat Chicks” stickers when I had surf vans.
    Funnily they often got defaced, hence my buying in bulk.

    Van parked round the corner has a FakeTaxi sticker?

    I’d forgotten until now, but I once followed a car with a big “Fake Taxi” rear window sticker – and “L” plates. So many questions…

    That sticker in the OP is a particularly bad one, but in general anyone putting stickers on their car has to be put in the same bucket as people with bonnet bras, number plates with the engine configuration/vehicle model details in it, tinted lights (I mean FFS the things that allow you to see/others see you), fake exhaust pipes, etc. I.e. a massive red flag that the driver is an absolute whopper.

    The really good ones are when they have stickers saying they have buggered up the car sufficiently so it cant drive properly. Generally along the lines of “lowered car so cant drive over bumps”.

    Nyah, I’ve just got one which says ‘Keep Cycling Weird’.

    I’m sure that gets me a lot of respect on the road 😂

    I have a sticker from the Deus Ex Machina shop in Sydney. Probably the coolest bike/custom/surf shop ever, also a LesArc and Powell Peralta stickers on the dash.

    They are on my least cool 18year old Peugeot Partner/Berlingo!

    But then I did used to own this as well….

    You sound like a right ray of **** sunshine.

    Eh? A sunstrip? If that’s what you mean they’re bloody handy, I’m getting one for my C8 when I remember, too many bits the visors don’t cover. Probably something a bit more discreet mind, I may just use tinting film.

    I’m currently in the US and saw a big sticker in the back window of a Chevy Impala. Not the cool old one, the mundane recent one. It was about 2 ft in diameter, had the outline of a ladies pair of legs and the knickers around the knees. It was accompanied by the words “oh, you drive a Chevy, I guess I won’t be needing these”.
    I mean really, who the hell thinks that’s appropriate or funny!?! Just flags them up as someone to avoid so perhaps it does have some use.

    There’s a heap parked outside the hotel I’m staying at with a massive “Powered by Pug farts” sticker across the whole boot lid.

    The “don’t touch my car” ones amuse me, it’s so tempting.

    Some good examples of bad stuff above, but at least they are trying to be cool or funny. They aren’t succeeding mind

    The worse ones IMO are converted vans covered in compass/mountain decals, especially if including the text ‘off on an adventure’ or even worse ‘camper van’. What are you even trying to achieve with that, cringe factor aside?

    My bumper sticker says ‘Don’t be a dick’

    I quite like the Buddha “don’t be c…” Ones but I don’t like identifying marks on my van.

    I agree but the problem is that DVLA has more or less made this a requirement as to re-register a van as a camper it has to look like a camper from outside and they consider these horrible graphics what a camper should look like. This is dispite the fact that the looks like a camper argument is kind of circular.

    As posted above 👆 Dick Trickle is a cult US racing driver (Cole Trickle in Days of Thunder is named as a homage) so whilst it’s a bit off colour the sticker gets a pass for being genuine motorsport heritage.

    I saw one this week, driven by a mature lady (with a pony tail) “if you are going to ride my ass at least pull my hair”. Pretty odd

    Have seen a few small cars with ones saying “Pick on someone your own size!” recently. They were popular back in to late 90’s on old Minis so guessing they’re staging a comeback.

    But given that you can insure a van as a camper based only on the inside isn’t that a bit pointless?

    This one though, always overweight blokes in beaten up Discoveries 😀

    Not so much a sticker, but scrawled in the dirt on the back of one of our hire lorries where I worked years ago was “Keep Cornwall tidy, dump your rubbish in Devon”. It spent a lot of time up and down the A30.

    Its to be able to do car speeds innit ?

    It’s more to do with speedimits for vans/campers.
    Mine is a van but insurered as a camper. I can only do van speeds though.

    A modified BMW is always parked on double yellows near me with a ‘U mad bro?’ sticker on the front passenger side bumper. I do not trust the owner’s decision making capabilities.

    No I meant the cretins who tint the front (side) windows so they can’t see pedestrians and cyclists and other cars.

    I’m all for stickers, and more generally, any modifications or personalisation of vehicles that don’t have an impact on safety. Too many bland euroboxes on the roads, and there’s a weird snootiness (demonstrated occasionally in this thread) that looks down on people who like to demonstrate a bit of individuality via their vehicles. Stickers etc can be both entertaining and informative about the driver. Sometimes not in the way intended, but that’s by the by, and useful too…

    I have a small ‘built not bought’ sticker on the back on my labour of love landy.
