Back Off I Drive the Speed Limit Bumper Sticker


Several years ago my daughter and I were shopping in Columbia, S.C. As we approached my car in the parking lot, a woman was loading her purchases into the trunk of her car. On the bumper of her car was this bumper sticker.

I motioned to it and asked my daughter to follow me as I approached the woman. I coughed to get her attention, said Hello and then asked her if she was one of those people who obeyed speed limits.

Well, I'll tell you - - her nostrils flared, and smoke started coming out of ears. But, before she could get up a head of steam and rip into me, I said, "Wait! Wait! So am I!"

She told me that she had had about 400 bumper stickers made up at her own expense, and she was passing them out to other drivers. She didn't have one with her, but she asked my address, and, true to her word, she did mail 3-4 to me.

I've thought about sticking one on my car, but around Chicagoland it would be too much like a bulls-eye.
