Want to avoid traffic accidents?

by Gene on Jun. 18th, 2008

Watch out for cars with bumper stickers. A social psychologist in Colorado has found that the more bumper stickers a car has, the more aggressive the driver will be, and the more likely to succumb to road rage.

All I’m sayin’ is “Forget about world peace – visualize using your turn signal.”

I wonder the higher incidents of road rage are caused by people/cars around them reacting to their bumper stickers and maybe making a rude gesture or something. That causes the earnest bumper sticker owner to react and it all snowballs into an argument with tons of metal at 75mph.

Bryan, the way you describe that makes it sound awesome. I have to get some bumper stickers.

I'm thinking "Princess" or "My kid could beat up your honor student." Or anything with Calvin peeing.

i would hope people driving are more responsibible than that. And if anyone has a rude bumper sticker, i wouldn't describe them as honest.

I think that it is because people are talking and or texting while they should be driving.
