Postwar Highway Plan Offers Opportunity for Safety Features Chicago, (U.R) -- The enormous highway construction p r o g r a m that will follow the war offers "an unparalleled opportunity" to incorporate built-in safety features into the nation's highways, Sidney ·T.

"A hazard eliminated by safe design and construction is eliminated forever," Williams said asserting that the public will support an expanded construction program if convinced that it is practical. A federal post-war highway construction bill has been passed and signed and state enabling legislation will be quick to follow, he predicted, if the voters are shown that expenditures of policing court trials and public hospitaltza- tion would more than pay for the construction of new highways with safety features built in.
