Commissioner Ward to Place
New Ordinance Before
Ogden's new traffic law and park
ing system will probably become re
ality before the end of the week. J.
l:u Ward, commissioner of public
safety and originator of the new sys
ti m, has completed drafting of thc
o. uinance and will present it to the
board of city commissioners within a
jday or so, according to un announce
jmrnt made this morning.
Under provisions of the ordinance
the system Installed here two months
ago which provides non-parking areas
and "stalls" where parking is permit
ted will go into official effect and vj
letors will be punished. Motorists
have been given nmplo opportunitv t.,
acquaint themselves with the demands
of the system. Commissioner Ward
BOldi and the plans have proven suc
cessful In addition to the parking
requirements, the right of way of mo
tor vehicles will be changed to agree
with a system which Is more univer
sal. With the passing of the ordi
rance the motorist approaching from
I the right will have full right of way.
In order that motorists may more
roadll) grasp the new right of way
system, Commissioner Ward explained!
that when a driver is approaching a
crossing another vehicle to the driver's
right has full right of way. This -will
eliminate the old system where cars
proceeding east and west nad rlerht
f way over those going north and
south. The old ordinance way drafted
for the purpose of allowing drivers to
gain speed to take the hills east of
