Continuing to lower cross-conn-try

locations for traffic control arise
As accident. records and studies of
vehicular and pedestrian ; traffic
indicate, the need for, new 'control
stations they may be established.
Traffic? control alternates jthe
direction of flow of both vehicular
and pedestrian traffic at street In
tersections. ; Thlsy results in the
movement of vehicular ? traffic
along the streets in groups with
Intervals between them. Except on
the -most congested streets these
Intervals will : be - maintained, or
dlnarily, for several blocks in eacli
direction from the control station.
Thus the influence of a individual
unit of traffic control usually ex
tends a considerable ' distance in
each direction from the station.
' "Of course, in extremely congest
ed traffic there is a tenaency to
quickly close the intervals between
groups of vehicles and the influ-
By use of standard scales, Overland and Willys-Knight dealers are

that the reading on all four scales is the same, namely 865 pounds.
This is the answer to the exceptional roadability and tire mileage
found in this, popular automobile.' :

points to assure the movement of
vehicular traffic n groups as ex
plained above.' To cause the traf
fic to flow In such groups," traffic
control is not orinarily necessary
at every street Intersection except
on the very neavily traveled
streets. In fact, the stations may
be located at some distance apart.
In many cases.
This kind of traffic movement
Is particularly Important .for the
these two systems the
vehicles flow along : the street in
groups-- with, intervals between
them for the safe movement of
pedestrian traffic, v. ' 1 '

such, "studies, visualizing at once
the volume and hazard of the traf

established largely by-gues work.
If pedestrians are : found to be
struck frequently by automobiles
while crossing heavily traveled
streets and studies of the traffic
flow t indicate that its practically
continuous without sufficient op
portunity for pedestrians to cross
in safety, it Is evident that some
traffic control is needed at certain
points alne the Btreets, particu-
larly"at those points where impor
tant, streets intersect.
If accident studies indicate that
there is considerable contesting
for the right of way at a given inT

with very little expenditure i of
funds. , ....
Perhaps one of the best illustra
tlons of the application of the
principal of locating traffic signals
first where they are most needed
Is in the city of St. Louis, Missouri
where a considerable number of
signals -were placed at Important
Intersections outside of the eon
gested business . district, where
theyt operated independently for
the express purpose of breaking up
the flow of traffic, into groups for
the safety of pedestrians, in cross
ing the streets,, Recent Investiga
tions in the city of Philadelphia
showed that the establishment of
traffic control -ascertain , individ
ual' Intersections resulted In a
marked reduct3oa of traffic acci
dents not only at those Intersec
tions but for some, little distances
around. ; These locations had been
determined . from a study of the
problem s created by, tthe .frequent :
occurrence of accidents at Impor
tant 1 street - intersections. ' :
In 'the location of traffic con
trols, municipalities should . par
ticularly aVold the. determination
of such locations- upon - the basis
of sectional, influence or political
expediency. - Facilitating the safe
and expeditious moving of traffic
is a problem that must be solved
In terms of-the entire municipal
ity and upon -the basis f thorough
analysis of the problem: ' .
Neighborhood .petitions - for . the
installation et traffic contrtol de
vices eannot be considered as any
more than posible indications that
a material -traffic safety problem
exists at a given point. Often, the
popular conception of a hazardous
location ' is ' not substantiated vby
statistical facts. - Epot maps -. of
serious traffic accidents have, for
example, shown that the most ser
ious accident hazards are' not In
the most, congested districts but
are, rather, wnere tne traffic
breaks' away from the restraint
of "congestion and flows rapidly
through densely populated dis
tricts. Consequently, from an ac
cident prevention standpoint auto
matic signals, are most likely to
be' necessary along heavily tra
veled . streets ' radiating from : tne
congested " business district. At
the same time, from a congestion
standpoint they are most ' likely
to' be necessary, in the congested
business' district.' - To' most 'suc
cessfully meet the two-fold- pur
poses of traffic control it is evi
dent therefore, that . the most
economllcal and efficient use of
automatic signals In any city is
not to ' be realized in theid con
centratlon In districts in ' either
of the two classes described above
but, rather, in comparatively wide
distribution over both classes of
'districts ''and ' at those, points
where either .extreme congestion
or extreme, hazards prevail. i

Chrysler received, from all pa,rts
of the United States reveal a. wide
range of opinions about the most
effective means of reducing acci
dents. He commends to everyone
interested in this whole' sub Jeet of
street and highway safety the re
ports' of the National Conference
on Street and ; Highway.. Safety
which was beld In Washington in
co-operation with the , department
of commefcei It is .intended that
this national conference shall be
f ollowedj by , state- ad regional
meetings and that those who at
tended the Washington conference
shall constitute committees on or
ganisation for local meetings.
Mr. Chrysler ik of the opinion
that not enough attention has been
given to the actual progress made
In reducing accidents. The ex
perience of . rseveral cities and
states shows that there are avail
able means of reducing accidents
and it follows that communities
are obligated to make use of those
means of conserving human lives.
