DUBUQUE SAFETY MEANS LISTED IN MANAGER REPORT lank* Second in National Contest for Traffic Mi«-~ hap Control. DUBUQUE --' Safety measures _sed by Dubuque, which was named econd in the national traffic «Ute- ;y contest among cities of 25,000 to 0,000, are described in a 'report which was submitted at the Na- ional Safety congress held in Chi:ago. · ·· City Manager R. M. Evans stated: "Our city council authorized the city to join the National Traffic Safety contest sponsored by the National Safety Council at the be ginning, of 1932. We became a unit n group 5, for cities of 25,000 to iO.OOO population, and were fortunate enough to finish in first place n that group. In the previous year, n 1931, our city had suffered five traffic fatalities. We finished the year 1932 and the contest period with no traffic fatalities. "I shall briefly point out here a few of the measures adopted at Dubuque in carrying on our safety unogram, all of which had their def- nite effect in giving us a perfect safety year. Eliminates Known Hazards. "The city council amended a local :raffic ordinance to eliminate known hazards, to provide for more boule. rard streets and corresponding stop signs, to authorize the purchase and installation of additional traffic lights. Four-foot yellow painted letters were installed on pavements at principal stop streets. Street cars were permitted to be substituted by modern buses with 50 foot bus park' ing spaces reserved along business sections. Many warning signs were erected. "Concentration of police and justice departments in bearing down on violations of traffic rules. Spot map analysis of traffic accidents. As. sistance through public and paro chial schools, Including junior pa. trols, parent-teacher efforts, and distribution of literature to children Co-operation furnished by local newspapers in printing monthlj comparative results- of accidents editorials and news of safety Infor mation. Work of Dubuque Auto club in schools, contests and in formation of additional patrols. Control Swimming Beach. "Increased precautions by Recrea tion department in control of swim ming at beach on Mississippi river 167 persons were rescued during river swimming in 1932.'No «*riou acj44»n.t* cccsarred on Tjlavground "attended in summer pewjvby 3,OOC children.' "Dubuque City'is also represente in the 1933 National Traffic Safet contest, and a still more elaborat program of safety education, en forcemeat, etc., is being carried out. One of our principal features i the activity of, a so-called vigilant committee devoted to the interest of safety throughout the commun ity. "This committee is made up of number of prominent persons, wh have had experience in charact uilding work throughout Dubuqu elected from the 15 voting pr nets in the city, each one to a s chairman for his district. Eac : these precinct leaders was asked a appoint four additional persons ving within the limits of his terri- ory to assist in accident preven- on. At a general meeting of the 5 precinct leaders and the 60 addi- onal persons appointed to help aem, the following general program was adopted: 'The members of the precinct committee and groups should study azards and report ways and means o prevent accidents and damage; iat they, as citizens, should at- empt to correct faults and negligence in other people's driving, 'so far as possible; that violations which they were unable to correct, were to be reported to the police. Detailed Outline Adopted. "At a later meeting, a more detailed proposed vigilante outline was adopted and individual copies of the rules were given to each precinct safety worker. The outline includes a signed statement by each vigilante member that he will be careful, will study traffic laws, wil report traffic violations, and wil use careful discrimination. Informa tion Is furnished on the form to in dicate the information necessary .t procure on a violator. The mayoi has a message to the group and thi citizens at large, asking that seri ous efforts be employed to reduc the traffic deaths and accident rate The form also has outlined abou 36 of the major traffic rules will- corresponding numbers opposit each, so that the precinct reporte can use a traffic code number fo reporting a violation. "The results of this secre vigilante committee seem favorable Few violations have been reporte to the end of the first six month of 1933; yet it is felt that consid erable personal effort has been per formed by the members among thei neighbors. The press assists in frequent mention of the secret grou which is twice the size of the Iocs police department and who ma report violations. General traff accident rate is decreasing in spit of improved business conditions.' Will Go to Chicago. ST. ANSGAR--Mr. and Mr Mort Miller and son.
