Tailgaters. Yes we know they are annoying. Would any of these car decals or bumper stickers actually prevent them going forward? Probably not. That being said it doesn't mean you can't try. These decals hit all the ranges when it comes to the message you want to send when the person behind you is following a bit too closely and won't back off. So let's check them out one by one.

1. Warning This Car Makes Frequent Stops At Your Mom's House
Call us immature all you want, your mom insults and jokes never get old. If you want to go for the route of trying to get under the skin of your tailgater by taking aim at his or her mother, than this is the decal that you want to go for. Plus having the big red "warning" label is good because it grabs the attention of the driver, and pulls them in the read the rest of the sticker. After all if you are going to have a decal, you want to maximize the chances of it being consumed. You can get it on Amazon for only $5.99 and it has a 4.8 star score on over 650 ratings.
2. The Closer You Get The Slower I Drive Decal
Probably the most standard of all the tailgating car decals out there. It's a simple message, letting the driver behind you know that if he or she thinks that riding your bumper is going to make you go faster that it simply isn't true. Now you have to be willing of course to actually follow up on this threat and take the risk of pissing off the person behind you even more than they already are. We leave that risk analysis up to you. In the meantime the sticker may clue the person in enough to cut his or her losses and back off and take the speed that you are going at currently. You can get the sticker on Amazon for only $7.99 and it has a 4.5 star score on over 40 ratings.
3. Do You Follow Jesus This Closely? Decal
This decal is good on so many levels. First, it clues the person who is tailgating you that they are probably too close to your car. Then it strikes them right at the core of their identity with that simple question. Either they are a religious person who follows Jesus that closely, in which case you are insinuating that a devout Christian such as yourself should not be following that close. Or they don't follow Jesus that closely and now you have internally confirmed within them that they are a Godless heathen that tailgates people. You pretty much can't lose with this sticker. You can get it on Amazon for only $6.49 and it has a 4.7 star score on over 100 ratings.
4. I Hope Something Good Happens To You Today Decal
We would be irresponsible to not offer at least one alternative that tries to kill the person with kindness. Most other decals go with the negative strategy and granted that usually is what relays the feelings of the driver. That said we wanted to post this one just in case you want to go with a more positive approach. You never know, maybe the person who is riding your bumper is just having a bad day or is in a weird hurray. As they get closer they see your sticker and now all of a sudden feel better. He or she will start to think how well you think of them and as a result will willingly back down a bit. It's not a bad way to go we must say. You can get it on Amazon for only $6.28 and it has a 4.6 star score on over 30 ratings.
