And Yes,there should be something like,one cant purchase stickers before having,say a 100 Posts.
But what will you do about borrowed stickers?
I have quite a few Tbhp stickers with me lying idle,and my cousin came and flicked a few.

Spotted a Blue i20 on ORR, close to Sarjapur Road signal yesterday evening around 5.30PM. It had the Live to Drive sticker in the center on the rear bumper.

so that's it? lot of BHPians drive that way so let's not waste our time talking about it? shouldn't we do something about it? Team-BHP should not just be a community in realm of 1s and 0s - it should contribute to the society. i'm sure there are at least 50 BHPians in the major cities in India. these BHPians driving safe and abiding by the law on the roads can influence others to follow suit and so on and so forth!

why do we put them stickers on our rides? to show off our rides or to let people know that we're part of something bigger than all of us, giving something back to the vehicle enthusiast and the community as a whole and we're proud to be a part of it!

your suggestion of the 100 post thingy sounds good! that's a start. lets report BHPians cars driven rashly and let that BHPian be warned and if the incident is repeated, let him/her membership be revoked. maybe we could have a "Hall of Shame" (if not already existing).

i had ordered two sets of stickers and i still have with me almost half if it. many of my friends and neighbours have asked me for these after seeing them on my car but i've not given out any. reason? i know they're bad drivers (or at least i cannot vouch for their driving/riding skills) and i will not be a cause to have a Team-BHP sticker on a vehicle that's rashly driven! period!

PS: don't flame me for these ideas!

Noble thoughts. BUT, who will decide who drives badly and rashly? It's words against words and will lead to unnecessary fights.

Also a guy with 1000 posts MAY be a bad driver whereas a newbie maybe the safest! Who's to judge?

I find this hilarious . Now "infractions" are Off the forum as well ?
I wonder who gets to be the "judge/jury/executioner".

Nothing against you personally.
But aren't you blokes taking this forum thing a bit too seriously ?

Anyway this is not topic for the "aam janatha" (Common man)

Good thinking. I shall post a 100 posts ASAP. My dad's driving is pretty decent. I'll see if I can get some stickers for his car.

Pic 2 looks really good, 2 LTDs.

BTW- I spot n mouli's Elantra almost whenever I pass Tippasandra or whatever the area is called, always parked in front of Miranda schools. He probably lives there.
I saw it driving about today, and I must say, it looked really good with all those TBHP stickers. I shall try and establish contact with him today.

Today between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm I've spotted three cars with T-Bhp stickers.

1. I was coming down from Hiranandani Powai towards LBS marg. Just before hitting Cafe Coffee day signal and took a left one pinkish red coloured Hyundai Accent was parked on the left side of the road. The car was with Live to Drive sticker.

2. Crossed the Powai bridge to take Eastern Express Highway, crossed the signal found a Black Chevy Roadster with Live Car, Love Car sticker

Could not got a chance to take photo.

3. The third one was spotted at Airoli, this time I took a photo. I was just behind this car, flashed twice, but got no response. The TBhpian over took the NMMT Volvo bus and went ahead.

your argument holds water, but there has gotta be some way to enforce it. its up to Team-BHPians to enforce the rules - some sort of self regulation. the reason i guess for the 100 post thingy is that by the time you reach 100 posts, you would have learned to follow the rules of the forum (hopefully) and respect the members and their views.

i know we cannot come up with the Rules & Regulations in a very short time (Rome was not built in a day, remember). the community will need to brainstorm about this to come out with ideas and of course the management and the mods of Team-BHP has the final say

personally, if these stickers are just meant to let others know you're part of a forum, rather than a symbol of responsible citizens who lead by example (at least on the roads), i don't find them any different than the "A/C Car No Hand Signal" sticker on a cab and hence no reason to put them up on my rides.

IMHO.
