More Dangerous to Walk the
Washington* Dec. 5. (By the As
sociated Press.)-A total of 3,808
persons were killed in automobile
accidents or died as a result of inqu
ires therefrom during last year, the
i census bureau announced today in
I a statement offering suggestions for
traffic improvement. An automobile
accident death rate of 14.1 out of
every 100,000 of persons were re
ported for 1919, an increase over
every year since 1915 when the rate
was 8.0 and an increase of 245 in
the total number of deaths over
"Each year it becomes more and
more dangerous for a person to walk
the streets," the census bureau's
statement says. "The reason usually
given, and probably the correct one,
is that the number of automobiles in i
use is constantly increasing. How
f then shall this ever increasing danger
be lessened. The obvious remedy is to
improve constantly the traffic regu
lations to keep pace with the ever iri
creasing \number of automobiles."
Suggestions made by the bureau'
for traffic improvement follows:
Erection at street crossings of
curbed safety islands, which, at the
mo3t dangerous spots, should be very
I close together.
J Construction of additional cross
Jngs in the middle of blocks, where |
.automobiles can approach from only
Demonstration of great skill, in
driving each machine before granting j
a driver's license for that machine.
Reduction of the speed limit, es
pecially at crossings.
Fine, revocation of license and im
prisonment, each to have its place as
an actual penalty.
