CA HOV stickers - where to stick em ?

Hi all, for those who have already affixed your HOV stickers, mind sharing where you actually put them ?

Seems like on the quarter panels and also rear bumper, space is so limited, and you can only go 'higher' to find a big enough spot.

Some pics would be great !

Thanks!

I guess I'll get over it, but I really hate those stickers! I'm not a fan of any bumper sticker and these ones are about as ugly as they get. Not only that, but they make you put three on just to rub it in!

At least they're functional...

I don't think it really matters where you put them. They are ugly anywhere. But I figure I did not buy the Bolt for its good looks. And the HOV lane often saves time.

I only put two on. Seemed like that oughta be enough.

You placed yours exactly where I placed mine, and I think this is a better placement than on the black plastic. The black plastic is not a smooth surface, so I don't think the stickers will stay put as well as on the smooth body panels.

If a cop is in a mood, you can get ticketed for not having the right number of stickers on the car. The likelihood of that happening is super low, but still exists. Dunno if it would be a simple cheap fix-it ticket, or a spendy carpool-lane violation. I've never been brave enough to find out the hard way and just put the stickers on like it was shown.

There's just really no way to make those stickers look good...Best you can do is pick a corner and stick them there.
Why can't they just require one instead of three?

I placed 2 of mine on the lower right corner like moombolt did, and saved one for the unfortunate day (hopefully never) that I get rear ended by some fool, it happened to a friend of mine and he had to show proof of the accident to the lords in Sacramento for them to issue new stickers, all in all it took him 3 months to get new stickers...

Good point about the different surfaces. I hope those that placed them on the black areas can keep us updated long term. I think I would like to put mine on the black too. I suppose you can get replacements if they fall off, no?
