The assertion of the Retail Merchants'

Following is Mr. Eno's statement:
"To the Board of Trade and all others
Interested In Strict Traffic Regula
"In order to thoroughly understand
the street traffic sltuition in Washing
ton at present, we must briefly explain
what it consists of In Its simplest form.
and review its development elsewhere.
Trade regulation Is of two kinds:
General and special. General regulation
is of primary importance since it deals
with certain simple but essential rules
which must bo known to drivers and
police before order can be brought out
of choas. After the drivers know the
rules and the police are educated to
enforce them, then all special regula
tion becomes cos).
"Special regulation comprises that
which In addition to general regulation
Is required at the foct and Intersections
of streets. In oiu way traffic streets, at
cab stands, pariiing places, the opera,
theaters, races. &r.
"It is only with general regulation that
this article deals in relation to the
regulations Just Isued for the District
General Traffic Regulation.
"The key note Is the education of
drivers and police without which ab
solutely nothing can bo accomplished
quickly or economically. The number
of police officers necessary for tho
regulation of traffic is In Inverse
proportion to the knowledge of the
drivers in the traffic regulations.
"Up to 1B thero was practically no
regulation of street traffic anv where ex

These cities had no printed regulations
but the drivers dnene skillfull) and
were familiar with !) usual rule of
the road and the polio were well trained.
"What had been tho result of gener
ations in London was desired without
unnecessary delay In New York. The
first essential w-as to teach the drivers
certain slmplo rules and to educate
the police to enforce them The ordl-
nary rules of the road, together with a
few but simple regulations, were there-

Idrntral rules, those for Ttiris (the la

greater experience available for com

regulations arc police regulations pure
and simple, but authorized by general
ordinances or other laws.

for Vew tork In 1903 hmu been re
pealed In the later cdltlcmo. though,
where ponsllilr, the wording ban been
simplified and n few extrn paragraphs
have been added.
"The fact that no changes have been
found necessary is due partially to the
fact that each clause was thoroughly
considered, thrashed out, and condensed
with the assistance of officials In di
rect charge of the work, and not
adopted until it seemed absolutely sure
It would work satisfactorily, and par
tially to the fact that three years had
been given to the study of the traffic
of London. Paris, and New York before
It was found possible to get any regu
lations officially accepted in New York.
Tbe necessity for Uniformity.
"Ispeelally, now that automobile
travel ao quickly and so often between
torcna and eltlea, Mntcs nnd countries.
In It desirable that rflle rrcnlatlons
be uniform everywhere, modified only
where necessary to suit some rare lo
cal condition, such as giving the right
of way. where everything elso is equal,
to vehicles going north and south over
those going cast and wfest In New-
York. On account of tho long and nar
row shape of Manhattan Island this
rule haa been made, Dut in no otner
city has it the balance of advantage,
and even In New Yoflc it Is often
abused, and causes an element of dan
cer at crossings, so that it Is a ques
tion whether it'should not be left out
In tho next printing of tbe regulations.
The efforts or the International
Road Congresses and of the many au
tomobile associations anil clubs
throughout tbe world are now belnff
bent townrd tbe adoption of uniform
trafflc rules and automobile legislation,
with a view to eliminating complica
tions, adding to safety, and facilitating
travel on all roads and between all
countries. It Is not only possible but
even probable that before many years
either the right or the left hand rule
for passing will be universally adopt
ed, not only for vehicles, but for pe
destrians as well.
"In view of tho foregoing, it Is evi
dently extremely important that no
police or other official abould be per
mitted io make bis own traffic regula
tions, but should be restricted to the
adoption of those already In force In
London, fttrr York, and Paris, with
anch minor changes as may be desir
able to meet local conditions and leas
density ot trafflc. These should con
sist almost solely In simple elimination
of certain clauses needed In a large
city, but unnecessary In a smaller one.
The regulations for country roads and
for tho suburbs o a city consist of
those only which apply to turning,
passing, slowing down, overtaking,
and signals. No role that has not the
balance or advantage with It; that Is
not lust, fair, and essential for the
Keneral safety and .comfort, will be
successful, and could not be made so

the same set of regulations which had
been adapted from the New York reg
ulations tho year before.
"Two years havo elapsed since then,
and nothing- has been done except tho
promulgation of a new set of regula
tions put In for?e February 1, 1913.
These regulations caused ao much nd-
verse comment that ke Board of Trade
and other Interested asked for a pub
lic bearing, vflilch waa denied. lost
ponement of a month before putting
the regulations in force was also re
fund. "A comparison ot the regulations
submitted to the Board of Trade In
February, 1911. and those promulgated
February 1. 1912, discloses, among oth
er things, the following facts:
"The first contains about 1.550 words;
only things essential, most of which have
been In force slnco 1903 In New York, and
the balance since 1908, and not one of
which has been repealed or materially
altered even thing carefully arranged
and grouped under proper headings, eas
ily located at a glance, and every para
graph as short aa consistent with clear
ness. "Tho second contains about &3G0 words;
all of the valuable paragraphs being
taken from the first, but so badly mixed
up by rearrangement and rewording, and
by unimportant changes and lengthening
of sentences; by paragraphs on matters
but remotely connected with the subject,
and which really should conio under
other divisions of police work; and by
other paragraphs which were considered
carefully for New York and discarded
before adoption as experience already ob
tained recognized that tho balance of ad
vantage was against them, as example

Article IX. The Respective Rights and
Dntlea of Drivers and Pedestrians.
The roadbeds of highways and streets
are primarily Intended for vehicle', but
pedestrians have the right to cross
them In safety, and drivers of vehicles
and street cars must exercise all possi
ble care not to Injure pedestrians. Pe
destrians should, on their part, never
step from the sidewalk to the roadbed
without first looking to see what Is ap
proaching, and should not. needlessly.
Interfere with the passage ot vehicles
or street cars.
By crossing a street as nearly as pos
sible at right angles, preferably at a
regular crossing, and when a traffic po
liceman Is stationed there, by waiting
for his signal, pedestrians will greatly
aid to their own safety, facilitate the
movement of traffic, and make it much
less difficult for the horses, which often
have to be reigned In suddenly and
painfully to avoid careless and un
thinking pedestrians. Nothing In tbe
foregoing should excuse drivers fnxn
constant vigilance to void injury to pe
destrians under all conditions.
Pedestrians on sidewalks should keep
to the right and when stopptng do so
at one side and not in the way of street
crossing or of people going Into or
coming out ot theaters or other places
