Uh, You Look Like You Could Be 'Bigz Boy'

You've seen them around, stickers on cars with the names of the most likely occupants and their respective blood types.

How dumb is this idea?

1. There's no guarantee that the window where they're placed wouldn't be the first part of the vehicle to be smashed to bits in an accident that actually requires someone else to give you a blood transfusion.

2. If you did get into an accident, who the hell in the paramedic team knows you personally? They're pretty much gonna be digging through your wallets for your IC or driver's license anyway.

3. If you're freakin' bleeding already, how long is it really gonna take the paramedics to get a sample of your blood and then do the typing on the spot? Not that they'd be carrying vials of blood of different types in the ambulance - would just make more sense to just have many bags of O+.

4. And c'mon, do you really want people on the road to know who the occupants of your car are?

And then, there are those who put stickers up on their vehicles with nothing but their nicknames.

W. T. F?

    in s'pore, our cars are so expensive that many people treat it like a sense of pride linked to somethinh like an exclusive hoilday home. therefore, we do what we can to make our fastest depreciating asset as unique as possible. For me, i don't even bother about washing my car. This nonchalance with my car upsets quite a few of my friends. Go figure...

    my guess is poseur lah.. i would imagine rally car drivers have their names and blood grps as part of their car decals, together with those of their co-driver. So in case accident, paramedics can spot.
