Drivers of vehicles with bumper stickers may be more aggressive than other drivers, according to a recent study from Colorado State:

Drivers of cars with bumper stickers, window decals, personalized license plates and other “territorial markers” not only get mad when someone cuts in their lane or is slow to respond to a changed traffic light, but they are far more likely than those who do not personalize their cars to use their vehicles to express rage — by honking, tailgating and other aggressive behavior.

I’m eagerly awaiting a follow-up study that rates drivers on the “reductive,” “boorish,” and “hit at a party” spectra, perhaps binned by number or density of stickers. RIYL: more on bumper stickers.
