Courtesy as Byword on Every U S. Byway Aim of Traffic Safety Campaign CHICAGO--To make courtesy a* byword on every byway of the United Stales is the aim of a national traffic safety, campaign to be launched March 1, The American motorist, who so often is an Emily Post as a host but a heel at the wheel, will he asked to "Make Courtesy Your Code of the Road." Three national safety organizations havo joined forces for the program, which translates into practical action one important goal of the recent White House Confer- ence on Highway Safety--the improvement of driver attitudes. The three co-operating organizations are the Inter-Industry Highway Safety Committee, an organization of automotive and allied industries, the National Committee for Traffic Safely, a n d the National Safely Council, Solution Up to Individual . "The real solution to, the highway safety problem l i e s In the mind of the individual," said W. F. Hufstadcr, chairman of the In- ter-Industry Highway Safety Committee. "And'we must reach the individual's mind while he is at the wheel of his car." To reach drivers in their travel cnvironmenL more than in their belter-behaved social or home environment, the campaign plans to climb into the driver's seat. A dash sticker will serve as a constant reminder inside the vehicle. A bumper sticker in bright fluorescent yellow and black riol only identifies a supporter of the program but reminds other drivers that "courtesy is the code of the r o a d." A calendar card setting forth the scvcn-poiut courtesy code can be kept handy in wallet or license case. "The person who drives by the golden rule will never have a seri ous accident," said Ned II. Dear- b o r n, president of the National Safety Council. "Safe driving is a moral responsibility and a dally demonstration of decent and moral conduct." ' Cod* of Hi* Road .That concept of moral responsibility is embodied in the code of the road, which asks every motorist to: 1. Share the road by driving in the proper Jane. 2. Allow ample clearance when passing. 3. Y i e l d the* right-of-way to other drivers and pedestrians. 4. Give proper signals for turns and stops. 5. Dim his headlights w h e n meeting or following vehicles. 6. Respect, traffic laws,, signs, signals and road markings. 7. Adjust his driving to road, traffic and weather conditions. The three organizations conducting the campaign hope to achieve widespread use of the slogan and lh« reminder materials through business and industrial distribution to employes, community organizations, automotive services,. trade associations, schools and churches. "No one likes to be told he is impolite," said Judge Alfred P. Murrah, chairman of the National Committee for Traffic Safety. "U therefore becomes necessary for everyone to, adopt courtesy as his own code of the road and live up to it. Courtesy extended by one driver to another can spread--it can become an epidemic--for cour tesy is contagious."
