Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 5, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT Tim LETHBmnCF. DAILY HERALD SATURDAY. MAY 5, 1017 NEWS OF THE AUTO WORLD With the Motorists of South Alberta Mayor Opposes Car Parking Rules Welcomes Trade Motorists Bring There has been some little agitation for a bylaw to govern the parking of motor cars on business streets recently. Some kicking has been done because Fifth street south, especially between Third and Fourth avenues. On Saturday nights particularly, cars are a glut on the market. Last Saturday night between Third and Fourth avenues, 73 cars were counted parked at one time. Mayor Hardie is not in favor of any bylaw at the present time. He points out that the advent of the automobile on the farms of Southern Alberta has Increased Lethbridge's trade area to 50 or 60 miles. Farmers and their families coming into Lethbridge to shop do not want to be bothered with rules about parking cars about which they know nothing. "Let us welcome this trade." says the mayor, "and make the farmers of the district feel that nothing Lethbridge has is too good for them. After a while, when outside trade gets established here, then we may talk of rules; for parking cars. Our streets are wide enough to accommodate all that come. It won't take them long to learn the convenience of nosing in their cars when parking them. But let us make our streets free as air to the motorists so long as they observe the rules of the road required by the Motor Vehicles act. It does my heart good to look down the streets and see cars parked as thick as they are these Saturday nights. There's an air of prosperity about it that the stranger cannot help but note favorably."
