Tho Commercial Club" and the Omulm Auto-Motov
(automobile) Club desire to have street cars stop at tho
near side of tho street intersections to take on and let off
passengers instead of at tho far side, as they do at pres
ent. Tho claim is mado by them that it will lessen
The Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway Company
does not favor the change for the following reasons:
1. It has been tho established practice in this city,
over since street care havo been operated, to stop oil
the, far side of intersections, and it is tho established
practice in tho majority of cities throughput the country
today. We feel a change would be confusing to resi
dents and strangers alike.
. 2. To .stop at the near side of intersections would leave
tho car entrance fifty feet away from the cross-walk,
compelling passengers to wade through mud when
boarding cars on unpnved streets, and compelling them
to wade through snow and slush when boarding cars,
even on' paved streets on many diys during the winter.
3. Careful study and investigation fails to substantiate
the claim that the near-side stop lessens accidents. The
theory of advocates of the near-side stop is that there
will be fewer collisions if cars stop on tho pear side otthc
street intersections. Our experience and the experience
of other street railways is that but few collisions occur
at intersections whero the car is about to stop. Ninety
per cent of all collisions occur either in the middle'of the
block or at intersections where the car is not about to
stop and, therefore, would not be affected by the change
and the remaining ten per cent would still occur, because
tho chanco of a street car colliding with another vehicle
when crossing an intersootion remains the same whether
it is starting up from a stop or coming to a stop as it
crosses the intersection. In either event, the speed of
the car would be the same.
IF THE OMAHA & COUNCIL BLUFFS STREET
RAILWAY COMPANY BELIEVED THAT THE NEAR
SIDE STOP WOULD LESSEN ACCIDENTS, IT
WOULD BE QUICK TO ADOPT IT FOR FINANCIAL
ilEASONSJF FOR NO OTHER, AS IT IS COM
PELLED TO PAY THE DAMAGES.
4. A number of cities, after trying tho nyar-side stop,
have abandoned it and returned to the former practice
of stopping at the far side. Notable among tho cities is
the City of Minneapolis where conditions are very similar
to tho conditions in our own city.
The Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway Company
desires to do in this mntter what the majority of its
patrons wishes it to do, and, in order to give its patrons
the opportunity to express thomaelves, will tak.e a vote
on the question.
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 25th,
26th and 27th, passengers on paying their fare will re
ceive from tho conductor a ballot, on which they will
.please indicate their wishes in tho matter by marking a
cross opposite "FAR SIDE" or "NEAR SIDE" and
drop the same in the box on the rear platfonn of the car.
It should be borne in mind that if tbe near-side stop is
adopted, cars will no longer stop on the far side.
Men, women and children alike are entitled to a vote
for each fare they pay, and wo sincerely hope that all
persons will exercise their right to vole each time they
ride, sq that we may havo a fair expression of public
sentiment on this question, not only for our own guidance,
but also for the guidance of the City Commissioners, who
have been requested by tho Commercial Club to enact an
ordinance requiring us to stop on the near side instead
of tho far sido.
