Why Do Parents Put “Baby On Board” Stickers On Their Cars?

Why Do Parents Put “Baby On Board” Stickers On Their Cars?

Doctor Claudia Aguirre, an assistant professor of clinical pediatrics at USC’s Keck School of Medicine, told ABC News that the car stickers are “a good idea,” saying, “[M]y car was broken into when I lived in Los Angeles. They smashed my car window for my purse on the seat. It is real. People do it.”

However, according to CNN, car break-ins are not particularly common even though people leave things like laptops and handheld GPS units visible inside their cars. Data from the LAPD shows that there were a total of 1,605 car burglaries citywide in August 2013. While that number may seem high to some people, consider that there were also 110 car thefts during this time period—and car thefts are far more common than car burglaries.

According to the CNN article, car break-ins are most common when people leave their cars in commercial areas like shopping malls, but “the best advice is simply not to leave anything in your car.”

So then why do parents put car stickers that encourage car break-ins on their vehicle?

Do they think it will help them find their car if it’s stolen? Or are they hoping to make a bad situation better by attracting thieves who only steal from other rich people in nice cars with fancy toys in them? Or perhaps they believe criminals can help children get home illegally faster?

I’ll let you be the judge of that. If you want to risk getting your car broken into for the sake of car stickers, that’s your choice. However, I would recommend you think twice before putting car stickers with messages that say, “Save a Tree – Ride a Bike.”
