THE GRIDLOCKSMITH, traffic safety activist, "Roads Scholar," former "Road Warrior" who lost a brother (aged,15) on the road in 1969, has compiled many observations and ideas about traffic safety after 3 decades of driving for a living. "Are you part of the problem, or part of the solution? Set a safe example in traffic." You, too, can be a gridlocksmith. "Road-Peace is a step toward World Peace." - Earl Shoop

Looking for what's logical, efficient, kind and fun... Traffic safety became a personal issue when my youngest brother died on the highway. I observed traffic unsafety while driving for a living(30yrs). Spread the word about "Road-Peace" as a step on the road to World Peace. Since those wise and gentle enough to create World Peace will not treat each other as we now do, in traffic, the road is a good place to focus our efforts. see

A CONFESSION (of sorts)

by gridlocksmith

The gridlocksmith is a fellow
Who likes the traffic mellow.
But, when drivers intrude
With attitudes, rude...
He sometimes wants to bellow!

Can we try a little experiment?

Here is a sister site called, "ROADRAGERS" devoted to giving space for us to vent our anger. Will knowing that we have such a place make a difference the next time we feel the anger rising as we witness careless, clueless, dangerous drivers in action?

I am a huge fan of The Darwin Awards, partly because they make me laugh, and partly because Mother Nature really needs help in the effort to prevent "idiocy" taking over the gene pool. A link back to "The GridLockSmith" can be found there(!) A first.
