Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) - November 26, 1934, Oakland, California OAKLAND TRIBUNE MONDAY NOVEMBER 261934 Strict Enforcement of Severe Penalties Sought By Slalc Aulo Group Concerted action to curb drunken driving on the streets and highways of the State was being urged to day by the California State Auto mobile Association which in a pub lic statement pledged cooperation with arresting officers prosecutors and the courts in suppressing the Strict enforcement and drastic penalties alone can not solve the problem the statement sets forth The answer probably will not be found the statement declared un til public opinion becomes general and alert and uncompromising to ward the druken driver and until each motorist takes upon himself the obligation of not driving when he has been drinking What one may think of prohibition or repeal Is beside the point The immedi ate question is the fact that the motoring public faces a condition of graver threat than any of recent years INCREASE SHOWN Official records cited by the asso ciation show a 23 per cent increase in the number of traffic accidents due to drunken driving during the first nine months of this year These accidents wore responsible for about 3000 detahs almost equal to the Whole increase in traffic deaths in the state The viewpoint of enforcement officers concerning the drunken driving situation is presented by the association in a statement made by E Raymond Cato chief of the Cali fornia highway patrol as follows LACK OF UNIFORMITY We experience difficulty not so much in making arrests as we do in complaints and convictions There is a serious lack of uni formity in the method of handling these cases attributable to a degree to the state of public opinion in different communities There are suspended sentences and small fines In many cases which merit jail sen tences With provision for a mis demeanor charge where no damage or injury to others has been caused by the ofefnder there would bo freater certainty of punishment and flagrant violators would have less chance of getting off lightly Offi cers must have public cooperation and support if they are to be suc cessful in meeting this serious
