Journalist, especially of the print medium.

A sticker/decal declaring that a particular vehicle belongs to the fourth estate, the press, to facilitate its smooth movement.

The town is tense. The minister is visiting the area.Political hyperactivity. Even a curfew is on. May be its election time. Roads blocked by police mamas and stick wielding hoodlums.

You need smooth passage to the nearest open bar or dhaba or to your regular peddler.
You are not that level tot get a jeep with POLITE or PEACE marked on its bumpers. You are not a criminal but have a criminal bent of mind. You are resourceful.

You would, like hundreds of them do, display a fullscape white sheet printed with the word 'PRESS' in 5" letters in black on the front windshield.

You are done. 90% chances that no one will stop you. Even if the cops hold up an injured or dying patient needing to reach the emergency room of the hospital, they may not even stop you.

By the by, can you get me a quater MC RUM and a pack of Kings on your way back.

Usage

Pandu: "Look at this bubba, during the hartal the real journalist Shambu got beaten up by the cops and the thugs this evening. They didn't care to even look at the ID card hanging from his neck re."

"But see, our porki Shiva got away with roaming the whole area like a king with all his chelas bar hopping and all that. He got his usual 'PRESS' thing jeroxed and stuck on his windshield!"
