Safer Police Cars Printer Friendly Version
When a patrolman pulls over a car, he or she must open the car door and step out into traffic. This is dangerous for the police as well as the inattentive drivers as the car door opens unexpectedly. State troopers should drive cars with the steering wheel (and driver's side door) on the "other side".

Pressure sensitive Break lights Printer Friendly Version
While driving, we often have people riding on the brakes but still maintaining a speed close to the care ahead of them. This causes people to then hit there brakes and causes an unsafe environment for all vehicles behind the person riding the breaks.
When a member wants to lightly keep their foot on the break while riding on the highway or street road, the break light would be a very dim light, and then when more pressure is put on the break light it will brighten to warn of an impending stop. When someone is to slam on the breaks there would not be a dim to bright, it would accelerate to bright light caused by the drivers pressure.
I believe that this would be a very beneficial addition to cars in all countries with the information received by the following driver reading the brightness of the cars ahead of it, thus reducing accidents caused by the breaking habits of other break riding drivers and people who like tailgate. You will have more warning.

The High Winger Printer Friendly Version
The design idea is for a medium to long range two-engine aircraft in either a larger wide body configuration or narrow body. The engines would be rear-mounted and be either similar to short distance airbus engines or those on longer distance Boeing 787 or 777 aircraft. The high wing design is based on the BAe 146/ Avro RJ and some turbo prop aircraft. The main differences are that this design could be larger or smaller and the engines are rear mounted similar to the MD 88 and others. The safety and passenger aspects of this design are listed below
As the this is a high wing design fuel tanks would be above he ground and would not be compromised in a wheels up emergency landing. The engines are also above ground level and would not be compromised in an emergency wheels-up landing. The mid wheel nacelles would be wide enough to prevent the plane from tipping over in a wheels-up emergency landing and could be equipped with inflatable air bags to act as buoyancy devices in case of a water landing. Also due to the high wing and high engine design these would not snag on waves or dig into the water if an emergency landing on water is required.
Passenger Comfort
Unlike the Avro (which is a high wing design with engines attached underneath the wings) and other traditional low wing designs, all window-seat passengers would have excellent views, and with a rear engine design noise levels would be acceptable.
