That was one of the accomplishments of the meeting of the city council Monday night. The money voted is ,toibe used for alterations and addi- i tions to the treatment plant and ' a'dditlons to the present ;collection , System. Other business that kept the city dads burning oil until fiast the hour of midnight included by Councilmeii-'Roy MaiApton and W. D. Ford ori the progress toward a i-ecreational commission. The names of Mesdames George T. Barcklow, John Kiraly, Ray Hilderbrand and Messrs. Fred Leonard and Lee Kenworthy were submitted by Hampton and Ford and approved by the remaining council members. Joe Thompson, airport les- ^afee, asked and received the coun- icil's approval to build a combina- ;tjon hangar and maintenance shop at the airport.

He rp- I ceived the same stipulation as did f^Trt'C^ibthers With similar requests, i.e., that each property owner' with frontage on each side of the proposed road be • willing to pay $1 •per frontage foot before the council will take action. Another,person present was "Prenchy" Ar- dens of the Thrifty Center. It was suggested that he initiate a "clean up.week" in the front and back yards of,his store. It was said that articles piled there 'spoil the looks of a modern store and create another eyesore along Main street. Playing Dangerous Game As yet we do not know the'name of a certain little girl who has taken to playing a dangerous game of "double-dare-you." This child, judged to be in her early teens, ; finds .a thrill in dashing in front 6f-oncoming cars and after listening to brakes squeal, or watching cars swerve- to avoid her, stands on the curb and actually gives th% • frightened driver the "raspberry." - Monday she dared a tanker, en< dftngering not only herself and the driver, but other nearby traffic. Perhaps she doesn't realize , that by unnerving a driver "she may caiisd an accident further along. "the highway. Perhaps her / parents are not aware of her ac- LC ^Iions or don't really d&re to discipline her. However, the motorists do, and one driver actually stopped his car and started after her to give her the tanning she ii obyioiisly needs, but she took for .fliihe^fields. it could be that since then she has gone into hiding, . y/ithotit having done more than : frighten and anger drivers.

Designed to protect citizen? against proven financially irresponsible drivers, the act also promotes safety by making it possible to removq habitual accident causers from behind the wheel. The act is enforced solely through suspension of the driver's or operator's license or privilege foj^- failure to do one of the following things: 1. Report to the department of motor vehicles, financial responsibility, Sacramento, within 10 days any accident involving injury, death or pvoperty damage in excess of $100. 2. Deposit within 60 days of filing the accident report an amount of stcurity, deemed by the department sufficient to meet any judgment for damages arising fi-om the accident. A standard automobile liability insurance policy, providing limits of $1,000 for property damage, $5,000 for death or Injury of one person and $10,000 fpr death or injury of two persons in any one accident is considered to meet the security requirements of the act. However, an Insured operator or driver must report an accident involving death or injury in any degree or pi'bperty damage In excess of $100 Within the same peHod of time and ori the same state-approVeci form as uninsured drivers or operators. One popular misc.pnceptlon concerning the law is that it is a compulsory insurance pet. ' A standard automobile Uability insurance policy, providing Ihn- its of $l,gOO, $8,000 aria $10,d00, meets security requirements of the act, biit cash or other forms of seciirity approved by the department of motor vehicles also fulfill term's ojl'the act. ' | So long as he is not Involved in an accident, a driver or operator need not be concerned about the act, but once,he is in a reportable crash, he mu^t report withih 10 days to the'department of motor vehicles inSacramento and deposit security iJE uninsured. "t.he only ways in which he can escape, filing security or demonstrating evidence of insurance within 60 days of filing his accident report are to: 1. File evidence with the department of release from lla- liility or a court judgmerit of nonliability. 2. Execute, a confession of judgment payable .yvheri and in such Installments as are agreed upon by both parties. 3. Execute a duly acknowledged written agreement pro; viding for payment of an agreed amount in installments. If one of the three .steps above is tiiken after the license or driving privilege has been suspended, it can be reinstated. Othe^^vise the suspension will remain in force until a year has elapsed since the accident and satisfactory evidenfe is, submitted to the department that no damage suit has been filed as a result of the accident. The new law goes a step farther than the old act of the sam% name, but leaves the earlier statute undisturbed. j Under the new law, the state acts to obtain a security deposit to meet any possible damage judgment arising from an accident Involymg injury, death,.or property damage in excess of $100. IThe old law provided for suspension of the driving privilege and the registration card of any perspn wfio failed for 30 days to satisfy any final judgment against him arising from an accident involving death or Injury to any degree and property damage in excess of $100. Provision is made in the nqw law for suspension of the driving privilege of any person who fails to report within 10 days to the department of motor vehicles at ^acramehtp, any accident of his involving injury, death, or property damage of more than $100. This provision, however, is In addition to the older section of the California vehicle code whiph requires reports of death or injury accidents to be rnade in writing Within 24 hours to the California Highway Patrol. If in an incorporated area, to tlie local police depfirtment. tJrivers who are physically incapable of making the financial responsibility accident report should have someone dp it for them. The law says that if the drivei- is injured too badly to Hohn, Antigone Lolonis, Alice Saunders, aaudette Colvert, Martha Butow, Dorothy BUlehus and Donna Brown.
