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

You don't have to start a website in remembrance of a lost loved one to make a difference in traffic safety, but, some folks do it... and do it well. They even have a store to help support the cause.

There is also a "Useful Contact" page that includes phone numbers and websites for child safety seat makers and auto makers from Acura to Volvo and Jaguar to Kia to Maybach.

These fine people are an example of "grassroots traffic safety activists." Not content to merely advocate ideas, procedures and behaviors, they have actually made information available that
has saved lives, set up a foundation that helps people in financial need to obtain safety seats, and Kyle's Kindness Project.

My hat is off to them, with most sincere condolences on the loss of their treasured son.


People become really quite remarkable
when they start thinking that they can do things.
When they believe in themselves
they have the first secret of success.

American Christian Reformed Pastor, Speaker, Author

Get action. Seize the moment.
Man was never intended to become an oyster.
- Theodore Roosevelt, 1858-1919, 26th President of the United States
