32 D«e. 21, m 1M4 Glob«-G«zttt«, Mi ion City, I*. Think better roads would cut death toll By RON SPEER !OWA AP SPECIAL REPORT (One of a Series) DKS MO1NE.S (AP) — Some of Iowa's legislators believr. (.hat construction of new and bottor highways would help cut the rising traffic (loath toll. And » majority of them indicated in an Associated Press questionnaire they are willing In hnosl Hio stale gasoline tax to build more roads. Cons!ruction of more divided highways, elimination of curbs on sonic of the slate's present highways, and improvement of exisling roads were among the suggeslions legislalors had for ways lo curb Ihe record rlealh toll which has pushed above the HOO mark this year. This would fake money, of course, and :!7 legislators said llicy favored a /mr-conl a gal-j Ion increase in Ihe stale gasoline, lax to !iel[> speed up highway cdnstniclioii. Only \2 legislators replying to Hie survey said they were opposed to a gas lax increase. (•'iffy-one opposed a proposal lo issue highway bonds. The suggestion reeojverj ihr hiicking of only four legislators. Ally. ficn. Kvan Hulttnan, Itepuhlican candidate for governor who was beaten last November, had backed a highway bund prop o s fi i. F/r-rnocraiic (iiiv. Harold Hughes has recommended an increase in the gasoline tax. There were scores of other suggestions on how to cul the traffic loll, including proposals lo make seat bells mandatory, lighlen enforcement of present laws, reduce speed limits, increase patrolling of secondary roads, improve safely educa- lioi), crack down on violators, and increase Hie size of the Highway Patrol. Sen.-eled H. L. Heying, I)West Union, said that although there are many ways lo help cul Ihe loll Ihe adoption by divers of "the principle of Ihe Ciolden Rule" would lake care of the problem. A proposal to adopt a national I raff if code was made by Hep.-elect Richard M. Kadi, 0- Ushon, who called the present "hodgepodge of stale traffic rules ridiculous. The traffic !ol! will continue hi vise until we he. gin In (real this problem as n national one, and not a local one." Many other legUlatort tati Hiey did nol believe nnylhingj can lie done- und'l motorists are convinced "(hat it can happen lo them " Most of the lawmakers who answered Ihe survey said they would support bills that would regulale billboards along inter- slate highways. I'Mfly-one said they favored regulation, while 10 said they opposed. In pasl sessions of Ihe legislature, bills to regulate billboards along the interstate have not been successful. In recent years Ihe federal government has temple; 1 , slsles lo adopl such legislation by offering bonus money lo those thai regulale billboards on the superhighways. Estimates of the bonus !ow« would receive if il adopts a regulating billboards by next .July 1 range from about $1 mil- linn lo S:i million. The survey also showed considerable support for legislation thai would make il illegal for a highway commissioner In have a financial interest in any firm doing business wilh con- Iradnrs who build roads for I he si ale. Fortynne legislators said lhe\ would Mippori such a bill, while 17 opposed the idea. A hearing into Highway Coin-j mission operations Ibis fall showed Unit four of the five commissioners were connected wilh companies thai did business \\ilh road builders or suppliers.
