What about the people that have such a sticker on their windows and dont travel with a kid in the car??

Then a quick look in the shrubbery still won't do any harm.

No logic. The parents are human, and want to proclaim to anyone who will pay attention that they are proud of their procreation.

The sign should read "My idiot parent spent money on this stupid sign, so when you swerve aim for the driver's door please."

People will drive more carefully. Sure it's not going to stop an accident from happening but if I saw that I'd say far away from that car (not like I'm going to hit it, but just to be safe).

Can I send you money? That's what it looks like to me, too.

"Caution! I'm a new parent, and I'm afraid of everything that might scare teh behbeh!"
"Look out for me because I might be driving whilst vomit is being flung inside the cabin!"
"You drive worse than me. Look out for my precious life that you obviously don't care about!"

Nah, I get it. I just don't see the reason.

unless you are in the presence of the Knights of Nii.

they may request a 2nd shrubbery. they claim its for a split-level effect but I have my doubts.

They are often sent to new parents (buy something - anything - in a maternity clothing store and you too can receive such glorious junk in the mail) for free by diaper and infant formula companies, with accompanying literature and samples, in an attempt to discourage said new parents from cloth diapering and breastfeeding. We received one in the mail from Nestle, but have not put it in our car or bought their formula.

I'm okay with anything that reminds people driving cars that the other vehicles on the road are not merely obstacles, but vessels containing live humans. I also like the billboards located outside highway construction sites that say "Slow down; my dad works here".

I think there's a phycological aspect to it, when a person see's that sign it naturally triggers them to step on the brake and be cautious because if you do end up hitting that person and something does happen to the baby, the guilt is far greater just because of the mere fact that it was an infant. That's just my take on it.

I think the message given by the sticker is "As I have a baby on board I might be distracted by him, so my driving style might become suddenly strange, so please take this into consideration".

i dont see much logic in it either.
imo, if you can read that kinda sign/sticker on the car in front of you, youre too close to that vehicle already anyway.
i always try to keep at least 50 feet behind the vehicle in front of me. not because i will crash into it, i am just giving myself enough space to play with when the car behind me "tries" to crash into mine.
but then i live in new jersey and drive in new york a lot. having that much space in front of me basically means "please cut in front me, everyone~!". i do get pissed off a lot because of that but my safety is more important.
sorry about going OT.
