WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA -

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

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

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 they have and where they go to school.

If you have a parking pass, you're also telling where you work or live.
