FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1930. THIC BALLY COURI'KTR,, U FAG-HJ TI5AVEL HIGH Motorists Pay One-Third More Over Bad Roads. (Ily k. E. Dufly) ' The motorist who pays out n dollar in car operating expenses in traveling over high type roads, fauist pay'$1.18 In traveling the sam distance on Intermediate type roads. Tito travel coat of flic same distance on low type ronda is .fl.HS. Coot of Qravot. These costs, determined by Prof, T. R. Agg anfl H. Si. Carter of Iowa Stato collepa for the "Imaginary" nvernge cnr, clearly Indicate the high cost of traveling over so-called low type roadf. According to their calculations tho cost of driving over gravel and no on fa one-tJilrd greater than driving over tiinootb concrete. For the siike of convenience, let It be conservatively Considered that the coat of driving a car over concrete la five cents a mile. A dclln,' will then buy 20 mllon of travel on hai-d pavement The average motorist now travels noino 0,000 miles yearly at, therefore, an estimated cost of $300. If the motorist's traveling weri, all to be done over intermediate type roads rather than concrete, the additional coat for this "privilege" would be 554. But If the motorist were compelled to , bump over low type roads the extra travel cost would he- $1H-- which la $114 that could be better spent. Money on Improvements. A motorists' association iuis Just pointed out t h a t 10 states t h i s year spent less money on ht;-hwny Improvement than they did lust year, even In the face of m o u n t I r g cnr registrations. Obviously, this cannot he called economy, fur every mile pf unimproved rond a c o m m u n i t y tolerates costs the taxpayer hard cosh through extra car expenses which have to do with fuel and ol!, cnr depreciation, tire wear and allied Horns. Cheaper motoring can only come through more extensive h i g h w a y improvements and these miwt come through the expedient of m a k i n g more money available for highway construction.
