The reflective ones can be a pain in the arse. Your best bet is to use a hair dryer and an old credit card or piece of plastic to scrape it off. Keep in mind that if it is the reflective kind, it'll hold the heat of the dryer. If your hands touch it, you may get burnt before feeling it if your hands are exposed to the cold. To remove the residue, use some acrycil or goo gone.
FYI, I had a buddy that used goo gone on a windshield and it started to eat it. The best luck I've had is to use the hair dryer bit and wd-40 on the residual glue. It doesnt come off right away so put it on a rag and and let it sit on the glue for a minute, then gently rub the glue away.

I use a razer blade to start peeling it off. Then i use some heat and pull lightly away it will peel off on its own with the right combo of heat and pulling.

I use a hair dryer and any plastic straight edge that I have handy. The key is not to use something metal which will scratch a plastic or painted surface. To remove the residual glue, I like denatured alcohol better than goo-gone. I have found that goo-gone is messy, just moves the glue around and sometimes can soften and damage a plastic surface. The alcohol won't do that.
i was use the blow dryer and the sticker was coming off and the next thing i know it peeled the paint off the hood so watch out for that!
