State Opens Campaign Against Unfit Drivers The State launched a campaign to rid the highways o£ mentally and Physically impaired automobile drivers who are a menace to safety on the roads. Secretary of Revenue J. .Griffith Boardman pointed out that although ths semi-annual motor vehicle ir.- spection campaigns have "done a great job of ridding the highways of unsafe-automobiles, a vehicle which is- mechanically perfect is no safer than the driver at the wheel." Boardman appealed to physicians, hospitals, · clinics,- safety councils, motor clubs, garages and public- spirited citizens to report-all cases of-mentally-or physically impaired automobile drivers to the bureau of highway · safety · in Harrisburg at once. -All reports he said must be signed and will be treated in strict confidence..

"Operators who demonstrate their competence as drivers in spite of apparent, physical" impairments will be"permitted to, retain .their unrestricted licenses,"TM Boardman said. ."Others will,bersuspended for in- competenceror given restricted privileges as: the .cases .-warant." .-Fallure'of'an'applicant for a learner's "or operator's license to reveal his mental or physical, incapacities is punishable_by a fine of $200 and licensed-suspension ~ol two years, he pointed 'out. ~ ', _ . . ·. _· .
