Respect to all the designs , but my personal opinion is that the overlapping theme doesn't seem to gel very well (specially when the "drive safe" is in italics form/tilted).Makes it look like the owner has put together 2 separate stickers.

Default safe driver

this is about making a statement and feeling proud of being a safe driver. It can be designed to be a transparent decal both in black/yellow and white yellow depending on the the car shade

Actually I liked the Drive Safe sticker best but that maybe becuase of the message. My car, wife's car and mom's car all carry this sticker.

And here is a comparison with the old sticker (ofcourse clarity will be better in real life, which isnt visible so well in these low-res images) :
The old grey sticker is more readable. Remember most times this sticker will be read when the car carrying it is standing at a red light.

Maybe all the old sticker needed was a simpler "http://www.teambhp.com" at the bottom on lines with Rehaan idea. Besides Red on Grey is a good combination.

I also liked all the sub text. I took time out to explain to our chauffers why this sticker needs to be prominent and also tel them that having this sticker implies that they follow the "rules" listed in the sub text. So with that in mind I like GTO's design here

but refined using Rehaan's graphics/fonts here

I think we should have a cut-off date and make this thread a poll by then with the short-list.

Make it "curb the surge". Shorter, and punchier.

Damn I never knew there are so many graphics people out here, my design seems like crayons in front of Picasso out here. But do give me some comments as well, would be appreciated.

Designing is not just about skill levels, its about coming out with creative ideas to put the message across, effectively.

Sometimes, the simplest of designs can attract the most amount of attention.

So never underestimate your creativity.
