You’ve seen these or maybe even have one. Do you think “Baby on Board” decals actually do anything?
They’ve been around since the mid-1980s. The idea is other drivers will know you’ve got an innocent child with you . . . and decide NOT to run you off the road.
A new poll asked more than 30,000 Americans if they think “Baby on Board” decals cause other people to drive more carefully. 48% of us say YES, at least sometimes.
Another 40% think they “rarely” or “never” do any good, and 11% aren’t sure.
The poll also asked about “Student Driver” decals, and if they make us more patient with those drivers. Around two-thirds said yes.
