STUDENT DRIVER Signs

Inspiration for this and matching Servbot plush hats came from April Fools' and from the overflowing love that transpired from @Turbo95eg6, @husker741, @woode, @CoupedUpSubie, @ntron1, @Snowblind, @soundman98 in my previous thread.

Highlights throughout the week:
- Amused faces
- Thumbs up
- People driving around me more considerately during SoCal rush hour
- "Oh shit," when dude next to me got out of his car startled by a creepy staring Servbot followed by, "that's sick!!"
- Response from cop parked behind me at Target when asked if these were illegal: "No, you're fine."
- "Awww cute," from a gal in the Target parking lot
- Criticism on facebook (last pic below)



*No denigrating comments, please. Pics per @ZionsWrath's and @GT86Brah's requests:

One on the bumper would have been enough. I like your car but those stickers are like zits.

I constantly seek acceptance from random strangers. I also found that putting dumb stickers on my car helped with this social hurdle.

Thanks, I didn't like how they turned out on the sides. I took them all off yesterday afternoon but am debating putting one back on the rear bumper.

Also thinking of replacing the rear one with a different sticker in the same placement on the bumper:





Because I'm an electrical engineer:


Because Z=Zenith in BRZ:


Because my wheels played a part in the record setting Griffon 86 on Tsukuba and there's a route 125 in my city:


But the inertia of me not liking the look of stickers on my car is stopping me. I'll talk them up and try them out temporarily, though, to watch internet strangers get angry about it.
