Speed—cxcctslvc, reckless speed is the greatest killer stalking the Na-
tion’s highways today.
In one out of every two driver accidents resulting in deaths and injuries,
speed is directly responsible for this carnage on the highways. Other lethal
causes, such as cutting in and out, passing on curves and hills, driving off the
roadway, arc indirectly the result of quick bursts of speed.
And the speed death toll is climbing! Faster roads, super-powered oars
urge drivers beyond their human limitations to a quicker and more fre-

'•“* Rural highway fatalities due mainly to speed soared from 22,000 in
1949 to 2N.200 in 1952 and over 31,000 in 1953. Those arc the dead—and
for every death count fifty injured, maimed, crippled for life.
*** Is this the price you and others arc ready to pay for the momentary
thrill and the ever-present danger of death from speed? It take* only a split
