Are You A Chinese Driver? Please Brand Yourself With This Bumper Sticker

Chinese driver sticker

You don’t have to brand yourself, of course, because that would be racist. But this is very interesting, via Vancouver’s Straight.com via Reddit:

On the ICBC website, the public auto insurer notes its official “L and N signs let other motorists know you’re a new driver or motorcycle rider”. Apparently, some drivers are going one step further and letting people know that they’re a Chinese driver.

I’d be willing to put down a strong bet that the sticker’s creator was a Chinese driver. To you, sticker creator, we have something to say, because this sophomoric generalizing will not stand, man: just because you’re good at math doesn’t mean you have to rub it in.
