About the yellow sticker, I asked a Swedish guy:

I think this one might need some explanation rather than a simple translation.
The sticker says "Vägrenskörning bestämmer jag" which freely translates to something like: "I decide if I drive on the verge".

A "vägren" is the part of the road located outside the normal driving lane. The formal english translation is "verge". Some countries don't have this feature on their roads but rather have a ditch directly on the sides of the road. However in Sweden some two lane roads have a rather large area outside the lanes that make it possible for slower vehicles to partly drive outside the lane if they want to allow faster vehicles to pass. It's not mandatory to drive on the verge. If you think it is risky, or uncomfortable you don't have to. However some drivers in faster vehicles drive in a way that they force slower drivers to drive on the verge. So the sticker is a message to these faster drivers that this driver is NOT going out on the verge if he don't want to.


Oftewel: ik ga NIET aan de kant ;)
