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

I have been noticing that many bus drivers seem to lack the understanding that "hazard signals" (aka- "flashers," or "blinkers") actually engage their turn signals so that it appears they are signaling that they are turning both ways at once. Until buses (and other vehicles) are designed with separate signals for turns and hazards, we are denied the ability to signal our intention to turn while the hazard signals are operating.

Perhaps it's time that we have separate signals for turns and hazards?
