THE GRIDLOCKSMITH

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 www.road-peace.com www.gridlocksmith.com

ANOTHER REASON TO DRIVE KINDLY

FREDDY FLUSSTERD
art by Earl Shoop

Imagine that another driver on the road, near you, is severely depressed (perhaps even contemplating suicide by running into the nearest large tree or other solid object - or, maybe, the next driver who acts like a jerk).

Would it really be a good idea to treat that driver unkindly? How do you know which driver is that one? Are there more than one?

"You mean I gotta be kind to everybody?"

What would it hurt?

It's only human to fear
When danger is always near.
So, if you are driving
Unclear of surviving,
Here is a reason for cheer.

Other folks, I'm sure it's true,
Probably, want to live, too.
So, smile and be kind;
You're certain to find
They may be friendly to you.
- Earl Shoop


Are you, or someone you know, depressed, or even considering suicide? Or just need some cheering up, chuckles, mirth, laffter...

What should be the first GRIDLOCKSMITH.COM bumpersticker message?

There is some buzz about this candidate:

DRIVE KINDLY - NOT BLINDLY
visit GRIDLOCKSMITH.COM
The Mrs has expressed some reservations on the basis that it might be an affront to the "visually challenged." One can understand the (over?)sensitivity on her part, as she has cerebral palsy and has long worked with people with disabilities.

Another candidate:
ARE YOU PART OF THE PROBLEM
OR PART OF THE SOLUTION?

Finally:
BE A GRIDLOCKSMITH - DRIVE KINDLY

As always, your comments are craved.

As you may have surmised, gridlocksmith.com is now on the web. It is under construction, with lots of content still to come. Patience, dear friends; much time is consumed, lately, with the job search and dodging bill collectors.

Did you see the "DANGER" Acrostic Challenge? It is at this previous post.




Have you ever seen a guy by the road holding a cardboard sign,
"Will traffic safety advocate for food?"
Hmmm... Perhaps, he could be selling bumperstickers?
