Preet ud UtmatioaaJ MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 11 IMf i Copy Paper CoedsU at Two One Drivers Are Key to Safety Chief Gives His Views on Poor Record By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Assn Writer DBS MOINES IDPA We have just been through a tragic weekend on Iowa high ways with 21 deaths recorded for the Labor DaV weekend I visited with Donald Stratton Iowas new State Safety Com missioner about Iowas safety program and here are the re sults of that interview HOW COULD these fatal acci dents have been prevented There would probably be a different answer for each acci dent Most of the answers would concern something a driver did or failed to do that took him over the margin of safety In nearly every case the accidents could have been prevented by at least one of the drivers in volved In addition I think we might have had a better rec ord if we could have put more enforcement on the highways As it was we thadevery patrol man on duty We even d i s missed the highway patrol re cruit training school on Mon day in order to get the instruc tors on the highways and we called out the drivers license examiners We had all 275 of our men on the roads but there were not enough The patrol

here The children were being driy en to school by their mother when the car collided with a Minneapolis and St Louis freight train at a crossing less than a half block from the school THE children of Mr andMrs James Zimmerman Waseca were 12 Michael 10 Constance 9 Barbara 7 Jim my 4 and Jan 2 They were enrolled in the is simply outnumbered We need more men WHAT CAN lowans do to be better drivers We can begin by giving the law the voluntary obedience it deserves Im afraid most of us think of the traffic laws as a sort of minor code that neednt be taken too seriously The La bor Day weekend record shows how wrong that attitude is At the veryleast drivers should consider the trafficvulvavw guide lines within which they can operate with comparative safety WHAT CAN state do to have a better driving record That depends on just how far the driving public is willing to go in additional limitations on driving freedom and in addi tional expenditures The public willing more restrictive laws and a patrol large enough to en force them would help An ex tension of limited access high ways would help more realistic legislation curbing drunken drivers is needed and stiffer more uniform penalties by th courts for all driving offenses These things and many others would improve our driving rec ord but they cannot be accomp lished by departmental decree The public must give us these tools through the legislature WHAT ARE the principle fac tors responsible for traffic acci dents I think the simple volume of traffic is the basic factor re sponsible for accidents Congest ed traffic moves the driver clos er tothe possibility of an acci dent restricts his area of move ment reduces his margin of er ror At the same time we have the driver trying to move BUT I AM of bigger of large areas being claimed on Chi nese the prime min ister told a news conference The seriousness of the sit uation is not that bor Nehru maintained but of the growth of feeling of estrangement irritation and anger on But Nehru told Parliament that the latest letter from Premier Chou Enlai of Com munist China added to the gravity of the border crisis because Red has step by more Chinas policy step become INDIA AND Red China have accused each otherof aggres sion Each has demanded that the other withdraw itsmili tary forces from border areas whose ownership is being questioned Nehru earlier
