Family stick figures have become as common place on so many vehicles nowadays. But could they be putting your family at risk?

You would think these stickers would be something silly for parents to slap on the back of the mini van and get a good laugh out of it. But police are now warning parents that this may not be such a good idea after all.

A group on Facebook recently posted a photo, warning of the dangers of these family stick figure decals and mapped out how the sticker you choose to represent the family could be giving clues to those with bad intentions.
