Service IMS FINAL EDITION With All Latest and Best News of the Day CHESTER PA MONDAY JANUARY 2 1933 KEYSTONE AUTO CLUB TO SPONSOR IMPORTANT ACT i Measure Fixes Financial I Responsibility of Motor Vehicle Operators I Principal Aim to Curb Ir responsible Drivers i I Features Cited CONTRASTING CHAMPIONS A Financial Responsibility Act for i has been prepared for V itroduction in the 1933 session of rf he Legislature by the Keystone u uitomobile Club according to an bu louncement yesterday by J Borton Weeks president of the club It provides chat motorists who be 3 come involved iri accidents causing death injury or property damage or who plead guilty or are convicted of violating thc motor laws must show financial responsibility through bond or liability insurance as a condition precendent to continuance i i of the operating privilege j The Act as drafted said Mr Weeks is the result of long study j of the subject of highway accidents i caused by persons who are finan cially irresponsible No perfect solu tion for uncompensated highway accidents has yet been advanced and in our opinion such solution will probably vcome by evolutionary rather than by revolutionary means How ever the Financial Responsibility law already adopted in numerous states and several provinces of Canada can at least claim credit for being a step in the right direc tion We have incorporated in the pro posed Act the best features of the laws of other states and ve believe it to be fair and equitable Certainly the time hascome for thc Common wealth of Pennsylvania to take a definite step toward curbing irre sponsible operators of motor vehicles and we have every expectation that the coming session will enact such a law Important features of the act sponsored by the club include Proof of financial responsibility to be required under the following con ditions Before the rencwel of operators license after it has been suspended or revoked for violation of the laws Continued on Last Pajre
