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

Traffic safety is very serious business. People are killed and injured on the road every day. We have to be alert and cautious.

But, I believe in fun. If something is not fun, it is not being done right. So, there's a game that I want to encourage people to play, while driving. It is called, "Who Can I Help, Next?"

Just by being helpful - leaving room for lane-changers, not blocking intersections and driveways, looking for folks trying to unpark, and any other way we can be thoughtful of others will increase the mellow quotient in traffic. That's how the game is played. If you choose to become a player, you will be rewarded with warm fuzzies, and a relaxed feeling that will do your heart good. It will ease stress on all of us, and make driving more fun.

You can help support gridlocksmith, just by shopping here. There are many shops in the Zazzle Mall, including: Disney, Discovery Channel, and many more.
