People here show their religion in their driving. Actually, they show that they have religion by driving at all, one has to put one's faith in some deity as prerequisite to getting in a car. But drivers show exactly which deity in small ways. A car with a small crucifix hanging from the rear view mirror is followed by one with a magen david. The car behind has a hamsa, and the next one has a small yellow plastic duck. Stickers on the back are more promiscuous and varied, assorted prayers for wellbeing or safety, support for a local prophet, or a warning to keep your distance.

The cars, however, are universally small, white and crappy.
