Dawn Cook's blog about Road Rage, got me thinking about vehicle advertising. While driving to an appt this a.m., I counted well over 100 vehicles with magnetic signs or some type of advertising (agents, landscapers, stores, restaurants, delivery service, pizza, computer repair - you get the point).
I'm a very cautious driver. Sometimes overly cautions, but always keenly aware that my company name, phone number and website are advertised on my vehicle. I drive a lot of miles and yes, sometimes I do get upset at other drivers behavior. So much so in fact that I have actually considered rolling down my window and explaining the rules of the road on more than one occasion. Then, I am reminded that my phone number is right below my window and the idiot driver could actually call me, email me, find me and stalk me (or worse) for the rest of my life.
Would it be worth it to correct their unfortunate miseducation? Obviously, they failed to learn the rules of the road before they were given their license or perhaps it's been so long that they have forgotten?
Marci Toliver shared an experience where someone actually pulled a gun on her. WOW! I can't even begin to imagine what that may have been like.
So - I'll ask the question - is vehicle advertising worth the exposure OR are we merely asking for trouble?
