    I think Marilyn vos Savant must read your blog: http://www.parade.com/askmarilyn/2009/11/Sundays-Column-11-15-09.html

    (As always, reading her column raises my blood pressure. Hundreds of things you considered, and the one you pick is *finger-wagging*? How about a head-waggle for the full diva effect?)

    Great idea in general! However, don’t those boxes block a little vision out the rear window? Of course, attentive drivers shouldn’t need these anyway.

    This reminds me of a story I heard on public radio about two American tourists in Australia who kept getting honked at for making dumb driving mistakes, like driving on the right side of the road. They finally put a sign on their car that read “FOREIGNERS” and stopped getting honked at.
