Second Prize Essay Tells ?
How to Reduce Accidents
. Education for courtesyl That U
exactly what Is needed. Education
in elementary courtesy, as it
could be applied to drlring' on the
' streets of' our cities and highways
of our state. For example: It two
men met in the doorway of a
. building. It is highly Improbable
that each one would give a warn
ing signal and try to pursa
through ahead of the other; but
they would each stand aside and
offer the other one the privilege
of passing first, and would conse
quently get through the encount
er with a minimum of confusion.
On the other hand, if these
same two men met In their auto
mobiles at an intersection, they
would more than likely each honk
his horn and try to crowd by first.
This lack of courtesy of one driv
er toward another and of a drtrer
toward a pedestrian Is the cause
of Innumerable accidents that
1 couldery easily be aroided.
Of course, you : may say that
courtesy is absolutely optional on
the part of each individual driTr,
and that most of them would not
, accept such a doctrine. But as I
said before, what they need is
education. This could be given te
them in a small degree .througn
the schools and like means, but
the best way. I believe, te instill
this thought into the minds of
the general public.' would be to
carry on an extensive advertising
. campaign through the newspapers
and various other channels that
would be open to the use of the
. .state. :-:

There is also anoher point
that X consider very important. It
is the fact that the traffic officers
patrol the highways in such dis
tinctive cwlored cars or motor
cycles. I do not exactly understand
the reason for this, but I do
know that it is an Immense help
to a driver who wants, to break
any of the traffic laws. It Is al
most the same as giving a mur
derer a warning that In 24. hours
the police are going to pursue and
try to capture him. . A motorist
can speed, cut corners, disregard
stop signs," or almost anything
else he wants to do. and as long
as he keeps a dose enough watch
for white automobiles he can al
ways avoid being apprehended.
While It the traffic officers pa
troled their beats in ordinarily
colored ears, the , law breakers
would be afraid to violate the law
because they weald not know
but what the car In front of, or
behind them, contained a traffic
officer. iThey would therefore
drive more carefully and be much
less liable to bare aa accident.
