It has been some time since I've posted. Yom Tov gives one the opportunity to rejuvenate and refresh mind and body.
It has been related to me, that before Rav Yitzchak Hutner ZTL would deliver his famous Yom Tov Maamorim (discourses), he would sometimes spend days in thought; until he developed his ideas and theories to completion.
So many various ideas entered my head during Chol Hamoed, but sadly they became a Davar HaAvud as I neglected to jot them down.
Yet one thought was thinked and thunked to fruition, and I'd like to hear your comments as to why this has never been implemented.
My idea is that motorized vehicles should have a different colored light that would ignite when one steps on the brake. Currently, the tail-lights and brake lights in cars world-wide are always red. Yet this sometimes could fool a driver into thinking that the car in front of him has not stepped on the brake, when in fact he has.
Why not designate a different color specifically for braking? I suggest blue, as blue and red are colors that are used by law enforcement to be noticed at night.
I don't have a satisfactory answer. Perhaps Gridlock Sam Schwartz could use his Talmudic reasoning to either explain why this is not a good idea, or better yet, have this idea standardized globally.
