RUSSIAN ROULETTE: Current intersection designs force drivers to play Russian roulette* at the critical LIFE AND DEATH STOP/GO decision point by forcing drivers to make several guesses (time and distance) at every yellow traffic light. *Over 140,000 injuries and over 9,000 deaths occur every year as a result of innocent people helplessly guessing wrong.
THE LAW OF PHYSICS DEMANDS A body in motion, requires time and distance to bring it to rest.
GUESSING SQUARED; ? (time) x ? (distance) = ? squared ? (time)Because yellow lights are all timed differently drivers are forced toguess at time) ? (distance) Every driver has a different perception of distance (And braking speed)
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ASK 100 PEOPLE THE SAME QUESTION? You will get 100 different answers.
WHY ARE WE SLOW TO UNDERSTAND: As we continue to ask drivers questions Each driver will come up with a different answer (Stop or Go).
Solutions that conflict with each other inevitably end up in disaster.
THE FINNLINE ANSWERS THE CALL: Instead of asking questions, the Finnline strategy is to simply give the solution. By giving all drivers the answer to the question, we eliminate conflict.
TRAFFIC INTERSECTION ACCIDENTS ANNUALLY CLAIM Over 9,000 American lives (=One death every hour of every day) Over 140,000 injuries Over $100 Billion in injuries and property damages AND
Millions of innocent Americans are being victimized by Red Light Camera tickets and being FALSELY ACCUSED AS RED LIGHT RUNNERS.
HELPLESS TO OBEY THE LAW: As long as Government refuses to provide for these solutions drivers are HELPLESS TO OBEY THE LAW.
ENTRAPMENT IS ILLEGAL: We are trapped into playing a guessing game that we would not otherwise chose to play. Forcing drivers to guess also makes us sitting ducks for the legalized shell game set up by the Red Light Camera companies. (The odds are in their favor because sooner or later, everyone guesses wrong.) IT'S A CRIME HOW RED LIGHT CAMERAS PERPETUATE THIS FLAW FOR PROFIT Red Light Camera companies violate your civil liberty because they
would rather see this SAFETY FLAW PERPETUATED FOR PROFIT than to see the
FINNLINE implemented. Because giving drivers a fair chance to obey the law would put camera companies out of business.
FIX THE PROBLEM STOP FORCING DRIVERS TO GUESS AT THE TIMING OF THE YELLOW LIGHT
The FINNLINE is a simple system of putting paint on the road to visibly mark the safe stopping distance for the heaviest vehicle rated to be on the road.
(Typically, the no passing line preceding the stop line is extended to indicate the stop zone)
INSIDE THE PAINT: At the yellow light, all vehicles inside the painted area do not try to stop (An 18 wheeler might be behind you). OUTSIDE THE PAINT: All vehicles outside the paint, at the yellow light, have a safe distance to stop and also instantly know they are required to stop.
iT DOESN'T GET ANY EASIER THAN THIS
DEDICATION: The FINNLINE is named after Police Chief (dec.) Francis X. Finn

TRAFFIC STUDY: Our primary goal is to perform a traffic study
because government will not recognize even the most common sense
solutions until after they have been, studied, and officially
ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED TO OBTAIN: Funding: Corporate sponsors can be found in the Insurance and transportation industries.
Simulators: Help us find traffic simulators as a platform for gathering data.
Ph.D. 's Professionals are needed to write the parameters and interpret the data.
Political Influence: This
idea dies if you don't voice your opinion to friends, family and
elected officials across the nation. (Remember, the moment you
patronize a business in another state, you become their constituent.)
MINUTE PETITIONS: (coming soon) (The Good): On-line petitions are great because they only take a minute of your time to voice your opinion to critical decision makers.
(The Bad): The word "petitions" is plural because the drawback to using On-line petitions is that they are limited. You can only send one to 3 decision makers at a time. Completing this project may require dozens of key decision makers and petitions.
(The Ugly): If we can get ten thousand people to help us when we need them (Give us a minute at a time) then your voice will be heard LOUD AND CLEAR!
