Unlicensed Auto Drivers Show Increase in State Group Called Dangerous One Described as Hazard on Public Highways Des Moines—More lowans are trying to evade the state's drivers license laws this year than during any other period on record and the state safety department calls it a "dangerous problem." Department records for 'the first 8 months of this year show that 1,220 drivers failed to produce valid licenses when encountered by highway patrolmen or local police. This is 127 more unlicensed drivers than were discovered in the same months last year. During the first half of this year 18 unlicensed drivers were involved in fatal Iowa traffic accidents, according to the department. Driving without a license is a misdemeanor which the courts may punish with a $100 to $200 fine or a jail term ranging up to 30 clays. This is not the only possible penalty. Under the safety responsibility law, the unlicensed driver is required to furnish proof of future' responsibility. That means a posting of $11,000 in bonds or cash or evidence of liability insurance to that extent with the state to be held for 3 years after the offense. State Safety Commissioner Alfred Kahl named, the increasingly large non-licensed driver group a dangerous one. He said it includes persons whose driving abilities have never been examined; those who have avoided re-examination because of physical infirmaties suspended or. revoked Sept. 22, 1949 8, Mason City Globe-Gaiette, Maion City, I HERE and THERE Alexander — Elias Klinefelter, Lyle Larson, Herman Modderman accompanied by Donald Scott of Belmond, left Saturday evening for a vacation and fishing trip in northern Minnesota.
