Penn. police warning drivers about "family members" car stickers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Do you have those stickers on your car that list your family members?

If not, you've probably seen them. They're the stickers that show mom, dad, kids, and so on.

Police in Harrisburg, Penn. are warning drivers that those window stickers give out too much personal information that criminals can use.

"The stick figure family may divulge too much information as to how many children are home, what ages they are, if you have a dog, if you don't," said Chief Patrick O'Rourke. "Be cautious about what you're putting on your vehicle. Be aware of what the ramifications may be."

Police also warn that parking stickers can give out information, like when you're not at home and where you work.
