    I make a donation every year to the NC Fraternal Order of Police and in turn they send a sticker saying you are a supporter. I see these on cars ever once in a while. Does putting this sticker on your vehicle potentially make an officer more lenient on a traffic stop? My gut says no, but I have to wonder why they send stickers and why people put them on?

    I know there are some police around here so I am posing the question. Thanks!

    FWIW, I haven't been pulled over in 7 years. :p

    It probably will make you more likely to get pulled over if people are using it to avoid tickets as a general practice. I had a friend who thought he was clever by sticking a MADD sticker on his car until a cop told him they usually look for those cars because alcoholics do it thinking a cop wouldn't suspect you're a drunk if you have one on your car.

    I think your gut is right. There are so many organizations and groups that you can donate to that will send you a card or a sticker that is a "get outta jail free" card...I doubt the majority of them get paid attention to.

    Even those little blue and black stripe stickers are everywhere.

    stickers dont make a difference on whether or not i write someone a ticket

    what they did and how they act is my determination

    i may not make any friends but if you did wrong you did wrong...i dont care who you know or what group you donate money to

    It's like when people donate to the CHP-1199 fund and in return, receive a license plate frame. I see a lot of those around here on expensive cars...

    I had a 100 club sticker for Houston Police Dept and a HPD sholder patch sticker that my dad had given me on my F250. I got pulled over in that truck 5 times. 4 times I was given a warning, You know window tint, front LP, and speeding. That was from Texas DPS, Harris county, Friendswood PD

    I got one ticket by HPD one day, Wrote me up for Window tint and doing a 60 in a 55. I did get that ticket cleared tho.

    Thanks for the input, guys! This sticker goes where all the others have gone...in the trash bin.
