That is based on a comparison of motor vehicle deaths in the first half of 1933 as against the same period in 1937. The decline in fatalities that began last November carried through encouragingly into July. So far so good. But, as the National Safety Council points out, "This is no time to quit in our fight for safety. This is just the beginning." We've won a partial victory. Unremitting effort on the part of every motorist, pedestrian, traffic judge and law enforcement officer is needed if the victory ia to be ultimately complete. Some of the most dangerous driving months lie ahead. Traffic during September is always heavy. And with the coming of the rains, snow and ice, plus the shorter daylight hours of fall and winter, motoring presents new and difficult hazards There will be no time for standing 'still and praising past achievements in safety, until December 31 has parsed, and the figures are all in. A saving of 3,670 lives is a magnificent thing. And it shows that traffic accidents, the pessimists to the contrary, can be sharply reduced. During the first half of this year there was more and better organized community and state safety work than ever before. We have gradually learned that sporadic safety campaigns solve no problem, and that permanence and continuity of effort are vital. We are learning what courteous, "fixless" law enforcement can do. And we are also learning the excellent results that follow better traffic engineering and scientific traffic control. You're one of the soldiers in this fight against death. The country needs your help. Keep up the good work--and make it still better.
