Chinese Bumper Stickers [5]

I’m back in Beijing for a few weeks, so it’s time for another installment of Chinese bumper stickers (or car stickers, as they are called here):

EVERYONE IS RESPONSIBLE TO LOVE AND CHERISH ROOKIE DRIVERS

This is playing off the  “love and cherish….” signs that are everywhere in China. “Love and Cherish the People.” “Love and Cherish the Grass.” “Love and Cherish the Subway.” I think you get the drift.

Most cars in China have manual transmission. Killing the engine is a common occurrence, especially among new drivers who get nervous when drivers behind them get impatient.

With grannies wearing red arm bands stationed every few hundred yards throughout the city to watch for and report on any suspicious activities, I feel a bit self-conscious walking around snapping pictures of bumper stickers. After all, what could be more suspicious?

Never mind….here are this week’s installments of Chinese bumper stickers.  Enjoy.

Chinese Bumper Stickers

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about my obsessive observation of mops in China. I don’t want you to think that my obsession is limited to taking note of mops. There are other things I notice as well.

Like bumper stickers.

I try to always have my camera at the ready to snap a picture of a bumper sticker.

Herewith are pictures of bumper stickers that I’ve taken recently.
