: I saw this bumper sticker the other day and I was wondering what exactly it meant. It was white with the red lettering, "If this sticker appears blue, you're goin too fast." I have been searching the web and have found little on this. If you could refer me to somewhere or explain what this concept is it would be greatly appreciated.

lol. That was funny. When a light source is approaching you the frequency of the light that you see is a higher frequency than it is being emitted. This aspect of the Doppler shift is called a blue shift.
