Bike Friendly Stickers

I posted this in General Cycling and thought it would be good here, too.

Very cool idea for stickers/decals you can get to put on your car, house, mailbox, etc. that shows cyclists that you're "bike friendly" and will help out if needed...

A cyclist friend of mine drives a cab. It has a bicycle mount and he has, in fact, given sag rides to broken down cyclists. He needs one of these stickers.

^ I think his bike mount probably announces that he's bike friendly.
