'Baby on board' signs

On the way home from work yesterday, I was behind a vehicle with one of those 'Baby on board' signs suckered onto the rear window. (It was a 4WD too, so that gave it two black marks in my book.) Those signs annoy me because of what they imply, to me anyway. However I have no idea why people really use them, and wondered what others thought, so here's a little poll.

[Edit] The first explanation is the most nearly correct according to the Snopes site. To quote them, "there's a child in the car, so drive carefully". Drivers should drive carefully regardless of who's in the other vehicles. What am I, chopped liver? Yes, potentially.
