That is an excellent idea. Always a good think to educate the non-riding public about safety issues.
I would also like to add my own "trail etiquette" rule...
While I agree it is our responsibility as riders to follow all the rules posted, it is also our responsibility to train ourselves and our horses to accept that there are some, if not many riders that will ignore one or all of these rules.
ANYTHING can happen out on trail and we should do everything in our power to condition our horses to accept that fact of life. Too many people get hung up in the "who's right" of it all, when what really matters is safety.
Sure, you can yell "you were wrong, you SOB" all you want. Yelling it from a hospital bed makes for a hollow victory.
