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

TEXTERS AND DIALERS, OH MY! (And a cute poster)

It seems that Virginia authorities have encountered a problem with enforcement of the anti-texting law... they could be witnessing dialing, rather than texting. Oh, dear! What to do?

Could the answer be to simply enforce the "full attention" provision? (Actually, doesn't this make the newer laws... redundant?)

On another note, the poster, below, can be found at the gridlocksmith store, and would be perfect for daycare centers and anywhere that children might be...

It is hard to imagine the anguish of backing out the driveway and feeling the sickening bump as one kills a beloved child! Rip this graphic off this blog and print it out for your dashboard if you must, but don't allow tragedy to strike your family!
