In order to lessen 'the death
late at the crossinir of the south
ern Pacific, that company has
issued a 'circular to be posted in
every garage in the company's
territory. Their circular reads
as follows: "Please read this
appeal H may save your life.
"Every yar brings an increase
in motor vehicle accidents at
railroad grade crossings. Graile
crossings are unavoidable. They
tire one of the inconveniences of
progress, to be eliminated just
as rapidly as practicable. The
railroads are doing their best,
but it takes time and a great
deal of money,
"No matter what safeguards
we throw about our grade cross
ings, our labor is in vain without
your help. All signs, bells, whis
tles, gates and flagmen are help
less before an automobile driver's
"For the purpose of observing
the care exercised by drivers of
motor vehicles, this company
placed men at a large number of
trrade. crossings on this line.
Their observations .were start
ling! Of 83,50) drivers lifty-three
per cent looked neither way be
fore Crossing railroad track!
Eight per cent loaked one way
'only, and but 174 drivers, or
fifty-two oiie-hundredths of one
per cent, actually stopped their
Ttiachine3 before crossing.
"From these actual otweiva-
tions it is apparent that men of
undoubted intelligence choose to
risk life and limb rather than
wait a few minutes to let a train
"Because yoa cnce took a
chance at a grade crossing and
ran your automobile safely uv
front of an approaohine train,
do not trust to luck that you can
do It again,
"Trains must run on tracks
and On time. Their operator?
have no choice of routes. But the
automobilist can choose and reg
ulate his rate of speed.
"If drivers of motor vehicles
would always associate the sight
of a grade crossing with the in
stant application of their motors'
brakes, accidents to automobilists
at grade crossings wold soon be
scarce. May we urge that you
let the sign of a grade crossing
sign instantly convey to you the
warning to slow down or stop?
It is a habit as easily acquired as
your obedience to the . traffic
policeman's unraised Band.
"On the formation of this
habit your life and thoseof your
loved ones may soma, day de
pend. It is better to wait at a
grade crossing than in a doctor's
