Resolution On Accident Prevention

1. That we urge our people scrupulously to observe all traffic rules and regulations and to cooperate in every effort to reduce the frightful number of fatalities and accidents now levying toll.

2. That we especially condemn the drinking driver; that we believe the mere act of operating a motor vehicle on the public streets or highways by anyone under the influence of intoxicating drink is a criminal act and should be punishable by law regardless of the results; that we would favor the enactment of laws to this effect.

3. That existing statutes should be so amended as to deprive every person convicted of driving while under the influence of intoxicating drink of his driver’s license, and disqualifying him for further driving for at least one year and for such additional time as may be necessary for him to establish the fact that he has completely reformed and given up the drinking habit.
