“Driver carries no cash—he’s married” (bumper sticker)

"Driver carries n cash” is a popular bumper sticker. “Seen in the last few days in Xenia, a beer truck and a sausage-maker’s truck, both bearing painted warnings to would-be robbers that the driver carries no cash” was cited in print in 1971.

“Driver carries no cash—he’s married” is a popular version of the bumper sticker that has been cited in print since at least 1993.

I still like the one I made up from a kit from an auto supply store.  I get favorable comments on it all the time suggesting I market it.
