By J. a. YEOMANM.
The agitation of local traffic conditions has gained
sufilent fores and backing to forecast denite stion.
Numerous sugstions have been voiced by authorities who,
through expnence, have gained a thorough knowledge of
thp situation-suggestions which deal fairly with both
motorists and pedestrians. * In fact, suggestions have been
so numerous that there is a sufficient mass upon which to
begin a proes of elimination to be followed by action
upon the surviinlan. A mechanical inspection of every
motor vehicle in Washington would undoubtedly produce
a psychological effect, but there is a question as to the
practicability of such an inspection. A car may passs
brake and steering mechaiam inspection one day and the
next day be out of control because of a breakage or dis
placement which could not have been anticipated even
by the most thorough inspector.
An inspection by any persons other than experienced
motor mechanics would be unsatisfactory and manifestly
unjust to the motoring public. The thorough mechanical
inspection of all the motor vehicles in Washington by men
fitted for the task presents difficulties which would seem
to render the plan unfeasible. The logical solution may
be found in an examination of the applicant for license
that will thoroughly test his fitness to drive a motor vehicle
upon the streets of Washington and after he has received
his driver's license make him liable in all cases of wrong'
driving to a penalty sufficiently heavy to prevent a repeti
tion of the offense-a penalty'which may not be evaded by
forfeiture of nominal collateral.
There should be maintained at all times a traffic court
before which every violator of the traffic regulations, ex
cept in the most trivial cases, should be made to appear
without delay. A complete record of all violations of the
traffic laws should be kept and in all cases used as a check
upon the number of previous violations and punishment
The concensus of opinion at the present time is that
it is too easy for violators of the traffic regulations to for
feit collateral and escape punishment due.
This manner of handling traffic cases would work no
hardship upon competent drivers and in the end would
bring about the condition desired both by responsible
motorists and pedestrians.
