"Carbon monoxide gas has a numb- Ing effect on the senses and ranny Instances are recorded where motorists have died before they could span the short distance from the driver's sent to the fresh air," says a bulletin issued by tlio club. 1 "One of the best practices is to open the garage doors before starting the motor.
