Acting on the convinc irg evidence of the vital records of the state which testify that automo bile accidents aref more frequent dur ing the winter months, due undoubt edly to the increase 'in traffic, state, officials are appealing to visitors and citizens alike to strictly adhere to traffic rules in driving and to use care and common sense in walking and driving. . Last year the highest number of. deaths caused by automobile accidents occurred in January. This being the peak of the tourist season goes to prove that the incerase in population tends to increase the a. number of deaths in the state caused by care lessness either on the part 61 drivers cr pedestrians. During the entire year 57 deaths resulted from automo bile accidents, according to. statistics from the state board of health. Of this number 45 were men and all but ten were white. Twenty per cent of the victims were children under ten years of age and a large per cent of the total number occurred during the tourist months, when traffic is most congested. Figures for 1919 are indicative of conditions in preceding years. They impress up the public the necessity of better observance of traffic rules both in towns- and cities and on the open road. . Unf amiliarity with local traffic rules is believed to ,be the cause of a number of accidents, a condition which should be overcome by devising some means of putting the rules before the traveling public before or on their arrival in the gtate, say officials.
