    Municipal Research Bureau
Requests Legislation for
More Efficient Speed Laws
Should the cities of Oregon have a definite speed limit ? Under
the present system, there is no real speed limit, and cities have no
right to enact speed laws, according to Herman Kehrli, of the Bureau
of Municipal Research.
Oregon cities arc realizing more and more the difficulty of prosecut
ing speeders under the existing rule, Mr. Kehrii says, and are beginning

The basic rule reads, “No per
son shall drive a vehicle upon a
highway at a speed greater than
is reasonable and prudent, having
clue regard to the traffic, surface
and width of the highway, and the
hazard at intersections and any
other conditions then existing.”
Proof Difficult
Although indicated speeds are
15 miles an hour passing schools,
25 miles through residence dis
tricts and 45 miles as the maxi
mum speed limit, he pointed out
that it is difficult to prove that a
person has exceeded a “reasonable
and prudent” speed limit.
Mr. Kehrli explained that these
laws were made because, when
given the power to set speed limits,
certain cities set “speed traps” and
collected undue revenue by means
of insignificant offenses.
Analyzing reports on the number
of traffic deaths taken from the
magazine, “Public Safety,” Alex
ander G. Brown, deputy city attor
ney of Portland found that “speed,
the speed of the modern motor car,
is largely responsible for the in
creasing death list.”
Results Too Tragic
In his radio address on “Muni
cipal Traffic Control,” Mr. Brown
drew this conclusion:
Tne results are too tragic for
this degree of individualism to !
Mr. Brown believes that cam
paigns to reduce traffic accidents
are of great value and should be
conducted so consistently that they
would cease to become campaigns.
However, he says that they cannot
take the place of good traffic laws.
