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

My heart wants to cry,
"Why, oh why, oh why?"
The officers felt
They needed no belt.
Is that why they die?

Another reminder that Police are not exempt from the laws of physics...
Washington Post, Thursday, March 11, 2010 page B-1 (bottom, left)

"...his cruiser hit some ice and then a pole." This happened in February. In hospital, it appeared that he might recover. Then... "he died Tuesday night."

It saddens me beyond words, each time I see another story about another cop who would have survived... (sob!) Police are charged with the duty of enforcing seat belt laws for the rest of us. When will they crack down on themselves?

My heart wants to cry,
"Why, oh why, oh why?"
The officers felt
They needed no belt.
That is why they die.
