I'm looking for people with similar feelings of rage and loathing
You don't need a bumper sticker to be more provocative and invite responses of road rage equal to yours. You do need to let go of your "feelings of rage and loathing" when behind the wheel.

"Live and let live."

Yup! Gotta catch that red light before it gets away!
I've had people pass me to stop behind 3 vehicles stopped at a red light when there's no one stopped at that red light in front of me. I love passing them at the speed limit before they release their brakes.

One of my friends usually drives because I do not have air conditioning. She backed into a silver Subaru at Subway in her Nissan pickup.

Oh, and she is a little over five feet tall. I think that her seat is all of the way forward.
