an hour in cutting corners in town.

common sense whether driving fast
or slow. Careless driving while turn
ing corners passing pedestrians, or
other cars, crossing railroad tracks
and maneuvering in congested traffic
is the greatest menace to life and
Sense, not speed, is the important
factor in determining whether a
driver is safe or unsafe.
