When my granddaughter was very young, she had been throwing up for hours and had a high fever. I called the doctor's office, and they said I could bring her in if I could be there within half an hour. I bundled her up, strapped her in, set a bucket next to her, and off we went. 

At a stoplight, the woman next to me got out of her car and stood in front of mine yelling at me that she would never hire me because I was going ten miles over the speed limit!!!!

When I got home that day, I took my business identification off my car and have never put it back on.

No, but some agents should. I passed a car the other day on side of a busy road that had been pulled over by police and they had their magnetic sign on the door with their name and brokers name on it.

If I was of the mindset to do that, I would drive more cautiously.  Not just because of the potential business issues, but because my vehicle would be more identifiable incase someone wanted to "road rage" me.

No, that's the problem! How about those car door magnets that also identify you. It's not a good idea for me.

There is a guy in my area that I saw yesterday with one of those car wraps on his pee-wee Lexus - for me that would not be good.

No. I drive very carefully now, don't flip people off, and generally try to be a courteous driver. Don't cut people off if I can help it. Road rage is a dangerous thing so I don't want to contribute to that either. So it wouldn't make any difference if I was identifying myself or not. Am just not sure that I would advertise on my car. Have never done it, don't think I would now unless I had a really great CLASSIC car.
