Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - November 24, 1940, Racine, Wisconsin The Racine journal times sunday bulletin. November 24,1940. Three safety Council warns Drivers of dangers created in Winter recommendations arrived at after 31 engineering experts conducted 3,000 tests under uniform conditions in Michigan by Verne Hoffman swirling blizzards sleet ice and rain Are in store during the next four months and to Cope with the increased traffic hazards the National safety Council has compiled a list of recommendations to he passed on to the driving Public by Law enforcement officers. Recommendations made Are not haphazard stabs in an Effort to Cut the toll. They were arrived at Only after 31 engineering experts conducted 3,000 tests under uniform conditions on Lake Cadillac in Michigan last Winter and then spent nine months analysing arum interpreting the results. Those 3,000 tests were conducted after the National safety Council found that Accident death rates As related to motor vehicle travel climb 40 per cent in Winter months watch out for skidding. Watch out for skidding is the first principal recommendation made by the Council. Winter conditions of Snow and a and longer hours of darkness fir been determined As the two in j or causes of Winter accidents. \ inadequate traction the Council asserts coupled with Speed too fast for Road conditions and with other improper driving practices such As Lack of Winter equipment and family braking frequently results in skidding. The proportion of accidents involving skidding on dry roads is Only about one per cent but is As High As 27 per cent on wet roads and 50 per cent on snowy icy roads. Done to rely Ort new and anti skid guaranteed tires to prevent skidding is the second warning. Although tires with Good treads Are preferred to smooth tires on dry and wet roads performance. With new tires is no better than with smooth tires on snowy and icy surfaces the engineers found. Tires of special mud or lug designs however have advantages on Loose Snow but have a advantage on smooth ice or packed Snow that is icy. The common practice of lowering tire pressure and increasing the Load Over rear wheels to increase traction on Slippery surfaces is not recommended. Engineers found that the resulting increase in traction for stopping is _ flight and is rep re than off set by reduction of Safe speeds in curves. Use tire Chaine. Use tire chains and use them on All four wheels to increase traction on Snow and ice the Council recommends. On rear wheels chains decrease braking distances and increase rates of acceleration from 20 to 60 per cent on dry and wet ice respectively As compared with Bare tire performance the engineers reported and added that new chains on All wheels further reduce braking distances about 30 per cent below those with new chains on rear wheels Only. A warning was issued however that on icy curves speeds with chains should be no higher than without because chains on rear wheels Are no great control against skids. Although braking and acceleration performance is from 30 to 65 per cent better on abrasive treated snowy and icy roads than on j Bare ice the Council warns to have i autos under control at All times As often Bare spots Are struck in cinder Salt or Sand covered roads j in Drifting Snow motorists Are j warned to beware of hidden culverts head Walls and other obstructions including stalled cars trucks and Snow lows which if standing for some time May be covered up. To drive with equal safety on wet snowy and icy roads As on dry because of lower traction and impossibility to Man Euver in emergency situations the Council recommends that sgt eeds be Cut 25 per cent with chains on rear wheels and 45 per cent with Bare tires. Citing the importance of mechanical perfection to avoid accidents the Council is urging All car owners to Check their brakes Windshield wipers electrical systems headlights tires Heater de Froster combinations fans fog lights and t Ort kits for Winter i iving. In applying brakes recommendation is to set them More easily arid cautiously on slip it Ery pavements a skidding a the Council reports a is generally a sign of Speed too fast for conditions.
