What Would a streets.mn Bumper Sticker Say?

Here’s an idea that wormed its way into my head during the streets.mn writers’ picnic the other day. If streets.mn made bumper stickers, what would they say?

Some ideas:

My other car is a [blank]

If you can read this, [blank]

Honk if you love [blank]

???

This is the best I’ve got…

UPDATE: how about this too!

    I’m imagining a “Coexist” sticker, except with bike parts instead of religious symbols.

    Two points:

    1) For me, the bumper sticker would say nothing, as I do not agree with bumper stickers.

    2) I find it intriguing that the Streets.MN gang would bring up bumper stickers, as many of the writers/board members/commenters lack vehicles to put them on…

      “My other car is a cargo bike.”

      20+ years ago I put a REV 105 bumper sticker on my bike. I still have that bike and the sticker is still on it.

      Maybe this is a perfect fundraising opportunity for streets.mn, design and sell bike-slogan-stickers. That is stickers sized well for placement of average bike tubes or fenders.

      The reverse sticker would be, “My other cargo bike is a car.”

    Just a picture of a crosswalk where the stripes are stakes or the shark teeth are actual shark teeth. Maybe Andy will draw one 🙂

    Maybe something about traffic noise, such as,

    “Honk if you’re like geese”

    or, [showing the Edvard Munch Scream woman on the bridge with a motorcycle that just passed]:

    “Stop HEARING motorcycles”
