While these bumper sticker ideas gave me a good chuckle, my advice is to take a deep breath and relax. You aren't responsible for others behavior, and a bumper sticker isn't going to change anything. Besides, without these poor drivers, we would have nobody to look at and feel superior to.

My thought about your original sticker phrasing is that it is likely to incite road rage.

If you have a stout rear bumper, and plenty of time, you just put your vehicle in neutral, and let them ram you forward, saving you mpg's until they get bored, then you repeat with the next one until you get where you are going.

There is no lack of pushing material! Imagine little gas station use! Hope your whip lashed neck is in good shape. Just wear football gear!!!

+1 - getting worked up about it (we all do sometimes) isn't going to affect them as much as it bothers you.

Hey I thought of a good way to get a new boat tail. Get a nice bumper sticker with small print. When someones all up close reading it, you can slam your brakes. Although it may get the other driver all worked up.

Take your vehicle to the 3 most expensive repair shops in town. Send in quotes to insurance companies. Woot you can probably fund all your new aero mods off this new chump of change!

I want "Please just go around." It is not witty, subtle, or anything. Hopefully simple enough for people to understand.
