I once saw a sign where someone had combined the "if driven at night, vehicle has been stolen" and "well driven" signs - it just said "if well driven, vehicle has been stolen".
Not on a vehicle but I once saw some great graffiti on a road sign. There was a temporary warning sign that said "Cats eyes removed" and someone had added "£20 per cat"

I've used those 800 "how's my driving" numbers before. At least once when I was alone, and once while I was a passenger. Both times I was able to write the number down. One of the times, I didn't have a cell phone, and I brought the number home with me and called from there. They just need the road you're on and approximate location, the time when the incident happened, and the license plate or truck number if possible.

Thanks McGrath, but I still dont see how you are supposed to make a note of the 0800 'how's my driving' number, when the said driver has just cut you up on the M5 at 50mph as much as I would like to let his employers know. Thats what makes it a silly sign.

In the back of my mom's car (I'd forgotten about this one)
'I brake for no particular reason'......I think its something to do with Terry Wogan. Moms 86 and still driving, infact she's off to Australia today - not driving, flying.

I was in North Augusta, SC the other day. I saw a bumper sticker.

"Do you follow Jesus this closely."

A fine sentiment whether meant ironically or sincerely, I am sure.

But I was sorely tempted to approach the driver, as he filled his tank and say the following....


"Why yes I DO!!! Sir!!"

"I am the paint on the Lord's bumper!!!"

There was something else I thought about saying, about being so far up as to be able to say what he had for breakfast, but discretion prevailed and I kept my own smart ass council.

It isn't, I have seen two vehicles make emergency stops this weekend while trying to pass turning artics.

Best sticker I ever saw was "Its a lovely day, some bastard's bound to spoil it". The car was on the back of a police tow truck at the time.

Years ago, when I was living in upstate New York, I often used to see the lorries of a local food producer drive around with the motto "Our wursts are the best!" written on the side.

NB: Wurst (the German word for "sausage") is commonly used for the same in New York State (and possibly in other parts of the USA!)

'hows my driving? call 0800 ***********'. If you phoned the number you wouldn't get the man in the van, you'd get an answerphone in the office where you could leave a message commenting on the driving, and giving time and date of something the driver has done that deserves comment.

In fact it is not a silly sign, it's a way of giving drivers a warning that if they cut up other road users and put the firm's vehicles at risk, there may be nasty consequences for them later.

While being extremely bored and in possesion of a large lump of chalk, I, as a driver in a convoy of British Army vehicles carrying Medium Girder Bridge (the armys version of a meccano set) decided to give my truck white wall tyres.
I also added "HM Queen & Sons" to the side, and "Stop Me And Build One" to the rear.
The Royal Engineer officer to whom we delivered the load was not best pleased!
My lads loved it :-)

A lot of hoon cars in Oz have a sticker: "Dilligaf", which always makes me want to find a marker pen and write "Yes!" next to it.

Dilligaf = do I look like a give a f@#$

Another sign I have seen on hoon cars is: "Cover me with honey and throw me to the lesbians". That one makes me want to grab the marker and write: "So they can tie you to an ants' nest".

And Ralphie, about the Danny Boy joke - it's more than likely that somewhere in Oz someone has that written on their plumber's ute.
