Other actions taken by the Board included opposition to any proposed increase in the Cost of City License tags in North Carolina opposition to any attempts to increase the lengths of tractor truck trailers in the Carolinas urged both states to require special licenses for operators of motorcycles motor bikes and motor scooters and a concentrated Campaign to be known As the driving while intoxicated counterattack pro Gram. The Board resolved because of the constantly rising Cost of Highway construction and maintenance and the acquisition of rights of Way and since South Carolina is attracting More and More Large industries and needs to maintain its National reputation As the Good roads the South Carolina Highway department is in dire need of additional funds. Firmly believing that these funds Are absolutely necessary and in the pay As you go principle the Carolina motor club recommends a one cent per gallon of gasoline tax increase in the state of South it was pointed out that Highway construction costs have increased 15 per during the past six months. Although previously opposed to such a Large increase is gasoline tax in North Carolina the Board resolved the Board of directors of the Carolina motor club believes that greater appreciation for and acceptance of the two cents increase in the North Carolina gasoline tax will become More apparent As the roads that the tax will provide Are let to con tract and completed and since the needs for additional Highway construction Are so pressing and urgent the Board advocates acceleration of planning and engineering acquisition o f rights of Way and any other phases of Highway construction that May in the past have served As a bottleneck for this Essen tial Public need. The Board opposes the diversion of any Highway funds to other Board members deplored efforts of Federal government agencies to divert Highway Trust fund monies to non Highway projects and the current administration s plans of withholding an additional billion from the Trust fund at the end of this year.
