A couple of suggestions from my side. When it comes to decals, they should, IMHO, follow the KISS (Keep it simple, stupid!) principle. Text should be minimal and easy to read. Small sub-text is hard to read, especially from distance and when a car is moving.

Both options below use the black/white/yellow colour combo that is widely used in traffic signage. Font is similar to, if not exactly the same as, the Team-BHP logo used in the site banner.
Note: I have left some whitespace below the sticker area to account for the "Hosted on Team-BHP" watermark.

Option 1:
Note the grouping of "I" with "www.Team-BHP.com"

I suppose thinking twice means the same thing!

The "A Safer You is A Safer Me" caption by -GS- in post #55 is a great tag line befitting our roads. Another great tag line is "Use your BHP sensibly, Drive Safe" by pranava in post #30.

The best design by far is the one by Rehaan in post #24...Subtle, simple and classy.

Not so good with designing myself, so am trying to contribute by giving feedback
P.S. - Excellent designs people - all of you.

I like the tag line.

T-BHP Drives Safe.

Best of the lot till date. After all, the stickers are also meant to promote the community. And what better message than this ?

A transparent back-ground can help give the impression that the letters are painted onto the body of the car. If we use this style, then the letters must be out-lines only.

One problem is : what if the color of letters is same as that of the car ?
Is a double-color outlined letters, on a transparent back-ground possible ?

@Pranava999, last two are good, but needs a split between 'Drive Safe' & 'Do you'. May be a comma. Or, 3 Color / Font combinations for " I ", " Drive Safe" and " Do You ".

Also liked "A safer you is a safer me". But that would mean asking the other person to drive safe, rather than saying I drive safe. Irrespective of our driving style !

@Petrolhead, those are too long. And the first one defeats the purpose : takes too long to read it : distracted much longer. And does not say " Drive Safe " !

@ razor like the first one of the two..but i think would look better if you did away with the underlining

Even though using the line "team bhp drives safe" sounds really nice and positive. I'm a little wary of using it on a drive safe sticker.I'm not sure if its a good think to collectively claim team-bhp drives safe. There is a probability that some members who have the stickers on their rides, do not really believe in driving safe..and they get spotted by non members who are aware of T-BHP. Wouldnt it then create a negative impression of the entire group??just a thought and concern, nothing more.

@ condor ...thanks for the feedback. instead of the comma or separator i thought i will use the small and cap cases

the designs can actually be used for transparent decals as well to suit dark and light coloured cars.

Just need to work with 2 colours for the text...yellow with a black border and another with text in black with a yellow border and do away with the yellow / black background

variations of my previous design that can be used on transparent paper. the yellow body text is for dark colourd cars, while the black bodies text is for light coloured cars

BTW the wife's going mental seeing my enthusiasm to design a drive safe sticker, and she cant understand if i'm married to designing ? or to team-bhp? or to her??... then the big Q... " Are you getting paid for this?" but she is supportive as well and gives her comments...asking me if i can get my old wagon R iced and performance modded for her use

well makes sense to just stick to the 2 words. how about decreasing the font size and using black instead of red.
