State Automobile Law Is
In Effect
No longer can children drive
automobiles on the state high
ways nor can automobile speed
ers drive recklessly over the pub
lic road at a speed in excess of 35
miles per hour. The new motor
vehicle law, passed by the laBt
legislature, became effective on
July 6th and will be enforced
rigidly, according to the state
rangers and others who are en
trusted with the enforcement by
virture of their officers. The
provisions of the law in general
are as follows:
it is unlawful for any person
under the age of 15 years to
operate or drive a motor vehicle
on a state or county highway.
Speed limits: Normal high
ways, 35 miles an hour: mountain
roads, 20 Platted mountain
curves, 12; other curves, 18; on
any grade of 10 per cent or more
15 miles regardless of whether
the driver is going up or down;
on all roads, except curves and
grades specified, 20 miles an
hour when the vehicle weighs
more than 10,000 pounds includ
ing the load.
All motor vehicles must have
dimmers, and search; spot or
other lights shall be turned off
upon the approach of other
vehicles and shall not be turned
on until after the approaching
vehicle is past. It shall not be
necessary, however, to turn off
search or spot lights, if they are
so directed as to prevent their
direct light lrom falling on the
left three-fourths of the road
and at a distance greater than
30 feet in front of the car to
which it is attached.
Except when more practicable
otherwise, ascending vehicles on
mountain roads of 10 per cent
grade or more shall have the
right of way over descending
vehicles. _ _
State To Supervise Road
With the date of the sale of
$2,000,000 worth of state bonds
for highway purposes approach
ing, Att’y Gen’l Keyes has given
an opinion to L. D. Blauvelt,
state highway engineer, holding
that half of this sum which, un
der the provisions of the amend
ment authorising the issuance of
the bonds, will go to the coun
ties, will he handled by the high
way department and not by the
The impression had gone forth
that $1,000,000 would be appor
tioned among the counties ac
cording to the state highway
mileage in each county and that
the cash would be turned over
to the various boards of county
commissioners. Keyes bolds
that the money must be placed
to the credit of the counties and
that it must be expended under
the supervision of the highway
department. In other words the
counties will not receive the
cash.—Lincoln County Dem.
