Taxi Window Stickers

Many Bangkok cabbies are sticker happy. Who can blame them when phone companies, radio stations, and other organizations provide free decals to taxi drivers. And in Bangkok, stickers are easy to come by as there are vendors roaming the streets with huge carts selling every kind of design with an adhesive backing imaginable. The colorful graphics on the decals add an element of fun to the taxis, and there's a practical side to them, too: they help keep cab interiors cool as they block out the blazing hot Thai sun. Never mind that these cabbies can barely see out their windows to drive.
