Drivers have been doing it to each other forever:

How about the polite ticket from Officer Friendly?

I'm inclined to go with the polite note tucked under the windshield wiper rather than stickers.

Despite all the other 'evil' things that people do to each other, as was listed above, doesn't mean it justifies us duplicating their 'evil' actions onto others. In a civilized society, if the actions of 'evil' few dictate how the rest of society should act, then civilization is doomed.

I see many people suggesting negative ideas.

But, I think stickers like these could be more effective in changing peoples idea of a bicycle rider. It personalizes the rider. I would love to see a campaign like this in Chicago. I'm no model, but would be willing to participate.

Anne, I agree completely. Negative (sticker on even whipped cream) will create a negative experience and perpetuate the us v. them problem.

There was that campaign that humanized cyclists a little while ago and I thought it was such a smart campaign. That is the way to get drivers to take notice. The more people know friends and family that ride, the better off we are.

I made my own stickers but I don't stick them, I put it under the windshield.
