Gasoline Dangers Are Not Fully Appreciate "Familiarity w i t h gasoline should not make one 'less cautious ot the dangers attending its uae," snys \\ Ham II. Stewart, Jr., president of th» Stewart Automobile school. "While it is welt to know the safe side ot gasoline, I: is far more i m p o r t a n t to know the dr.ngorous side. People who bundle gasoline c o n t i n u a l l y are apt to overlook the fact t b u t danger is always presonl. l u r k i n g unseen, but ready to v.-urk harm as soon as the conditions are right for an explosion or a fire. "Probably the greatest clangor comes from the fact that the vapor Is very heavy and colorless. Slnco I t cannot bo so-iii, there Is l i t t l e indication of its presence. It may accumulate at the bottom of a closed room or on t h e floor of a guru go u n t i l some one drops a lighted match and acts lire to It. When allowed to .·icciimulute hi this manner its explosive power is tremendous. "It !fi evident, then, that care must b« t a k e n to avoid such accumulation. Keep the promises ventilated so that the vapor will be dissipated nfi fast uss It is formed. Do not spill gasoline, being especially careful while filling tanks. One of the- most dangerous devices is u gasoline sprayer, used. In cleaning tho motor. It should never be used in a garage, and is not safe even in the open ah-. The operator spray* the gasoline on different parts of tho engine us he uses tho brush. By this process enormous q u a n t i t i e s of vapor form which travel to considerable distance Hacking a flame. The operator cannot help b r e a t h i n g some of t h e mixture, which is iu- Jurlous." »' V o i i r Sai'c Improved Facilities Would Lessen Many Dangers, (By E. I;. Duff}') A signboard ten feet square w i t h the big lettered words, "Danger-Sharp Curve" clearly outlined against a background of black and white stripes Is placed i ' i plain view along n highway in lo'.va. Two people were recently placed In a hospital because they didn't see t h a t warning. This merely Illustrates that In automobile accident prevention, chief consideration must be given to tho human equation, personal element, or whatever other name can be applied to human f r a i l t y . Fault of Opcratoro. Stnto records show t h a t 05 per cent or more of motor ear accidents may be attributed to car operators and that n f o n t h to n third of t h e mishaps are due to t h e negligence of pedestrians. Automobile accidents are inerems- Ing, taking the c o u n t r y as a whole. Cur usage is growing for two reasons: 0,000 oars are added to those present every day, and bettor roads flnd the tendency towards motorization lead to more intensive use of every motor car. Much can be done, of course, to put down the h u m a n factor In accidents, yet there Is this, too, to be considered. Highway facilities must be constructed that w i i l reduce to a mini m u m the possibility of h u m a n error In driving cars. High Speels to Stay. Automobiles capable of high speeds are without: doubt hero to stay, unless some faster moans' oC transportation is created, i.nws cannot t r a i n man to be a better judse of speed or instance and so lonp, ns I n a d e q u a t e highway facilities exist car accidents will occur. Fortunately, for most safe h i g h w a y f a c i l i t i e s there Is a dollars and rein's j u s t i f i c a t i o n , riiplnvay prude separations, whereby 0,10 n.uid or street passes ovor a n o t h -r at Imerscctlons. compensate for their cost where t.riif- fie is h e a v y .
