Personal Safety Tip #5
Bumper Stickers on Your Car

Safety is always the main priority for a private investigator

“Safety is not about being paranoid — it is about being smart and being aware of what information we are sharing with the world.”
Ashley Glinka, a former federal law enforcement agent.

Bumper car stickers can be considered a fun and creative way to express your personality, interests, or sense of humour. Stickers can also help you easily identify your car in a crowded parking lot or car park making it stand out and is easily recognizable among others. At the same time, it’s essential to consider that some individuals with malicious intent might notice and potentially exploit the information displayed on car stickers.

Here are some tips from private investigators that will help you to express yourself safely and find your car easy without any concerns.

  1. Use them responsibly. Bumper car stickers can be a fun and expressive addition to your vehicle if you enjoy personalizing it and sharing your interests with others. However, it’s essential to be mindful of potential damage and the preferences of others on the road. If, due to beautiful stickers, your car stands out from the general traffic on the roadway, then it can potentially cause an accident, because other drivers will try to see it instead of concentrating on the road.
  2. Follow rules. In some areas, there might be regulations or laws regarding the use of certain types of stickers on vehicles. Make sure you are aware of any local restrictions before adding stickers to your car.
  3. Sharing your hobbies publicly is not safe. Do you want other people know how many days or even hours you are out of your home? For example, if criminals can see a sign or image conveying a message like “I am a ski person”, “I am a mountain man” or “camping fan” they may target your house while you are on vacation.
  4. Do you want others know your country of origin? If not, don’t use signs with flags of your home country. Avoid displaying stickers with flags or symbols revealing your nationality, as it may attract unwanted attention or reactions, particularly in politically sensitive times.
  1. Think about your kid’s safety. Stickers can also reveal information about your family, such as the number of children you have, their after-school activities, sex, and age. Moreover, some customized stickers show personal names of family members, which is not safe. While the ‘baby on board’ sticker is meant to indicate the presence of an infant in the car, it can also imply that your hands are occupied, potentially making you vulnerable while leaving the vehicle.
  2. Are you a dog person or a cat lover? Car stickers can also indicate whether you are a dog person or a cat lover, but be aware that stickers indicating specific pets, especially valuable breeds, may attract unwanted attention and potential theft.
  3. Are you a ballerina or an elite athlete? If you display stickers related to a busy lifestyle, such as ballerina or elite athlete symbols, it might indicate that you are frequently away from home, making it a possible target for criminals.

As long as you use bumper car stickers responsibly, they can be a safe and enjoyable way to express yourself while keeping your loved ones and others in mind. Remember that criminals often seek easy targets.
