Opinion: Police practice a sticky issue

Police need to stop dangerous practice of placing stickers at eye height.

THE police practice of putting yellow stickers at eye heights on vehicles’ windscreens is dangerous.

The yellow stickers, sometimes known in motoring parlance as “canaries”, obstruct vision, thereby recklessly endanger the public.

I have been advocating for decades that police change to some other way of marking targeted vehicles and have repeatedly proposed tags on number plates as one option.
