At the risk of sounding flippant on a thread discussing a serious problem, I would say that this guy has solved our long-standing Sticker Problem for good - we can buy up all his stock from JC Road and everyone here can finally have the stickers they have been crying out for over the last few years.

BUT! It also highlights the negatives of handing out stickers to anyone and everyone - whether here on the forum or elsewhere. If the chap in question is indeed a member - SHAME ON YOU, whoever you are.

I know the car,and the owner.Ive told him a million times to get rid of the sticker.But i don't think the bhpian was driving because he knows iceman's car very well and he would have waved if not moved.

What if someone apart from the owner is driving a car with a t-bhp sticker.It isnt fair to flame the member is it?

Steer, these guys don't have the stickers ready made and in stock. They have the clip-art forms stored in the computers from customers, their own designs etc. The make print outs based on what the customer chooses and gets your sticker ready in 5 mins.

totally agree with you.In Delhi(lajpat nagar)number plate shops have their designs on computer and they can give you whatever design you want for 100-150 rs,even T-BHP.

Binoy, somehow I wondered if it was his car right from the beginning. But like you said, I think maybe his driver or someone else might have been driving the car.

Amit, how old was the driver?

Guys,
Let us make some strong convictions, as members of team bhp :
1. Never use - Mobile phones while driving, even with handsfree, bcoz it surely disturbs the safety of you, as well as those near you. pull up, or just attend the call, and then drive. (we had no cellphones before 2000, but still we lived that century, folks)
2. never break the rules, except in life&death situations, emergencies.
3. always control your road rage, let us be the first to forgive, let us give a chance to other road users to get ashamed of the road rage behavior.
4. stop publishing the partying photos of tbhp meets, with bottles,cigars - as this makes a general image that a tbhp meet is not a social meet, but a drunkards meet, which should not become true.
5. please abstain from any adult or sarcastic criticisms, as tbhp has a very decent matured image amonsgst our indian NRI's who see us, a tbhp member as a respected man.
6. finally, if i had talked too much, please forgive me, i bow my apologies, to all tbhp members, if i had hurt any of your feelings, sentiments.

Better then that he gets rid of the sticker. Maybe you will have to ask him a million more time! :-(

Well said, opendro. Truer words were never spoken. Add a fourth forum personality to that.

iceman91 - we need to discuss this and much more at our next meet.

Such a nice thing.

I am amazed to see even a small thing like sticker can make so much difference. It is like on of those stars the authority guys wear.

Yes, makes us a lot more responsible drivers. We shall set the right examples on the road. Makes our cars even more special.

Good going Tarul; unfortunately most of the drivers that one gets usually do not share the same passion about vehicles as their owners.
