"Unavoidable" who invoh'Ugcited reported that Hit; iiechknl upjmiircd lo have been unavoidable." The sentenco above appears in pcr- l)H|w> ii majority of ncw.snaper reports of automobile collisions :iml other high- Way accidents, 'ninny of them involving loss of life. It is a statement that is seldom true. The officers merely niuun that they conkl find no evidence on which lo base criminal charges against any of involved. Most highway accident are not Ihe result of siieedinjf, reckless driving or criminal negligence. Hut very few of them may properly bu described as "unavoidable." They are almost always Ihe result of carelessness on somebody's purl. There are men and women behind the wheela of automobiles lo whom the privilege of driving on our highways ought lo be denied. We could make our highways safer by a licensing law that would deny their use lo fools and 'drunkards—-(he c,onjjfcnit;illy incompetent, tin: inherently reckless, mid the alcoholic daredevil. But the chief menace cannot be eliminated by law. The thing that is most essential i.* a realization on the part of the great majority of drivers—the capable and prudent individuals' who are responsible for most of our highway IraJl'ie— that an automobile is a potential engine of tlealli and that denial vigilance is essential lo Hw safe operation.
