You see them just about everywhere you go: the stick figures on the back of minivans and SUVs representing the parents, children and even the family pets.

According to an Ohio based search and rescue site, they say that bumper stickers and decals could be tipping off thieves and predators and helping them track their next victims.

The site, called “Race,” explains how criminals read the decals as a map into your life.

The site says if you have your family decal up on your window along with a “My child is an honor student” bumper sticker, you display how many children you have and where they go to school.

If you have a parking pass, you’re also telling where you work or live, which is just one more clue about your life.
