Ruth Millett Doirt Be Afraid to Caution Mate Who's Reckless Driver Several wives were discussing-* their husbands as automooile drivers, and the comments of several went something like this: "I really hate to ride with Jin. Ke roars up behind cars and then jams on the brakes. He will cut in front of a car with another car coming toward him and barely -jot back in line in time. In fact, ho scares me to death but, of course, I don't dare say a word or he gets mad." The complaints from other wives that followed such as speeding, passing on hills, lighting a cigaret or fiddling with the car radio while driving seventy or eighty, driving after too many drinks, all ended with the same wifely admission, "But I don't dare say a word." There has been so much fun poked ai women as back-seat drivers that a lot of women who should speak, up about their husband's driving habits are afraid to do anything but push hard on the floor boards. KEEPING QUIET IS JI ST PLAIN SILLY They are afraid of their husband's disgust or anger if they ven ture any sort of protest, n how recklessly their husbands dating, just as much as for the v ho is nding with her husband rife Either of them has a right to protest if she feels her safety is be- mdangered by a man s show ing off at the wheel of a car. More girls and women need the gumption to say, "Either drive sr-fely— or let ine out." i better to be a live back-seat driver than the victim of a tragic ident simply because you were afraid to speak up.
