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

RIP, Brother!

June 19, 1969, was the last day my brother, Ricky, rose from his sleep. He packed his gear and hit the road to continue his bicycling trip to Minneapolis. He did not make it.

His loss is one of the main reasons that gridlocksmith cares so deeply about traffic safety, and it is appropriate to remember him, now. Rest in Peace, brother!

On a lighter note, 
we have this story about two British traffic patrol officers,
who may feel lucky to be still alive, after their hand-held radar
device locked on to a NATO fighter aircraft.

Going shopping? Help gridlocksmith promote "Road-Peace" by using this link, each time you shop at The small referral fees add up, and your help is so very appreciated!

"Road-Peace is a step on the road to World Peace!"
There is commonality that advances both traffic safety and World Peace: kindness, forgiveness, patience, compassion, 
gratitude and loving thoughtfulness.
Whether we bicycle, drive, or walk, we can model 
the behavior that true world peace will require of all humans, 
while making traffic safer, and more fun.
This "grass roots" movement needs you 
to model that peace making behavior, 
and to help spread the word.
