PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1999 Auto Damage Law Goes Into Effect June 11 (Continued from Page J) Is not liable. I. A duly acknowledged written agreement to pay damage claims. • • • FAILURE TO deposit security or forward proof of one of these alternatives will result in the suspension of the motorist's operators license, registration certificate and licence plates. This Is not a compulsory Insurance law. Nowhere in the law Is & motorist required to carry Insurance. The law demands only that motor vehicle owners and drivers shall be prepared to deposit security for the damage caused in traffic accidents. The maximum security deposit is $11,000. They may do this by carrying insurance or by depositing security with the Department of Revenue. The experience of most of the other 42 states that have adopted simitar laws, however, indicates that the great majority of motorist! will elect to protect themselves before they have an accident by taking out insurance. The same experience shows that a great many motorists have suffered unnecessary, inconvenfence and even hardship because they did not understand that the law could accept only those forms of Insurance which cover damage ( claims resulting from motor vehicle accidents. SOME MOTORISTS in other states, for instance, thought their fire and theft insurance protected them against the penalties of their financial responsibility law. Others believed their collision insurance was enough. Must Cover Others Still others thought personal accident, and even life insurance, would do the trick. However, none of them would or could. They Insured their owner against personal injury to himself or damage to his own property, but they did not cover the damage he did to others, which is the goal of a safety responsibility law. The majority of Arkansas motorists, if they elect to protect their motoring privileges through Insurance, must be sure they have what Is known as automobile liability insurance or a combination policy that Includes It. Tills is the kind that is written for the owners of private passenger cars. The law provides that it shall eb accepted automatically as proof of ability to meet damage claims, resulting from an accident, providing it was in effect at the time of the accident and was sufficient to meet damage claims up to $11,000. THE LAW provides that the Commissioner of Revenues may accept any other form of liability Insurance which, in his judgment, will cover dom'a'ge claims resulting from the reported accident. The average motorist, however, should not concern himself about this form of insurance because it principally applies to business or industrial owners. In case of doubt, the surest way for a driver to settle the question Is to ask an insurance company, agent or broker If his policy protects him against the Blytheville's Public Library Acquires 27 New Volumes Tw«nty-Mven new rolumw hive been placed on the shelves lit the BlythevlUe Llbnu-y, Mn.

(Continued from Page 1) fighter - bombers used electronic •sighting to drop thousands of pounds of bombs on the East-Cen- .ral and Eastern Fronts. The bloodiest hand-to-hand figjit- ng was reported from the Finger Ridge sector, where the ROKs slashed their way to the top of :hree outposts only to be hit by \vo Chinese battalions poured into he fight from the Red main line to the north. Driven from the crests, the ROKs regrouped on the slopes of the outposts and continued fighting at rifle and machine-gun range. (Continued from Page l) height of more than 2,500 feet. The device was dropped from a bomber coining from Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque. N. M., at an altitude of probably 35,000 or 40,000 feet. This is calculated on the basis of the AEC announcement that it took 42 seconds for the bomb to drop from the plane to Its point of detonation. The previous high power of any bomb dropped here is believed to have been about 30 kilotons. The physical evidence of today's detonation would indicate that its power output was nearly double any previous shot. A kiloton is the AEC scientists' term for the equivalent of 1,000 tons of tnt. The nominal or Hiroshima bomb contained the equivalent of 20,000 tons (20 kilotons) of TNT. Witnesses here said the view of the fireball was the best of any blast held since the test program started in 1951. The mushroom cloud, also quickly visible, appeared unusually large. The Las Vegas area was illuminated for nearly 20 seconds by the flaring golden light, with the first flash so dazzling as to almost blind the eyes. The flash was also seen in San Francisco. fiOO miles away. But as sometimes happens, even wl'Ji the brightest blasts, the shock xvave was not noticeable here. The AEC has explained that shock waves skip around freakishly due to atmospheric conditions and n/ny hit a given place on one blast, but bounce over it on another. No troops were involved today, but the Air Force continued its indoctrination program with a flight of planes over the test site. Civil effects studies included flash tests on the eyes of rabbits— Fighting has been almost con- aw akened in time for the burst by tinuous on Luke's Castle since the j alarm C i 0 cks in their North Koreans gained their firvt foothold Monday night. Three ROK charges failed before they recaptured lost ground Wednesday—only to lose it again.
