A series of weekly articles on
the problem of Highway Safety
by Earl Snell, Secretary of State.
The publicity given the safety
work promoted by my department
and the general use of the material
sent out on this important matter, is
most encouraging and gives cause
for hope that definite results will be
attained. The newspapers in every
section of the state have showen
their desire to assist in this work,
and many columns of space are de
voted to it weekly.
There are almost as many ideas
of how to meet this problem as there
are people. Ask any group what ac
tion they would take and you will
get a variety of answers that will not
only show an amazing divergence of
opinion, but also a most interesting
variety of plans for improving driv
ing conditions on our streets and
Those who have made a study of
this problem appear to be agreed on
only one thing that something must
be done. The large amount of fa
vorable comment is greatly appre
ciated and criticism is just as wel
come. The motor vehicle operator
who goes to the trouble of writing
to tell us where we are wrong and
the editor who devotes his space to
suggesting things that should be
done and are being neglected, are
equally conscious of the traffic
safety problem, and doing something
toward its solution. Regardless of
his own belief, the fact of his interest
is proof conclusive that results are
Education and enforcement are the
two necessities at the present time.
They can be brought about in the
fullest degree only by an awakened
public conscience, an aroused and
militant demand for safety. Discuss
the problem with your neighbors,
your officers and your courts.
Suggestions are welcomed. Many
valuable ideas have been received
from people reading these weekly
articles. If you have a remedy to
present, it will be appreciated and
receive careful consideration.
