TUESDAY, JULY 26,1960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JULY 26,1960 Rumble Gives Driver Pause At Stop Signs "Humbling roads" have drn- tnalicnlly reduced si up Mien vio lationj? in Illinois, nrcording to ft special study of rumble strip applications In Cook County, it is reported by George P Marsh. president of the Automobile- Club of Missouri "Humbler pavement." Marsh e.\ plains, "is a ai>plk'ntion of special constriH'iion technique for three- bundled feel on the tmlfie lane approaching a stop sign. When a cnr strikes it an Budible rumble warns the driver to be alert. The idea originated several years ago when the Illinois Highway Department lound that stop sign disobedience was ranging from 20 to 62 per cent. Since then, checks made at numerous rumblered locations, now totaling 173 in all. have shown much improvement. At some intersections "no stops" have been eliminated entirely and everywhere fewer "rolling stops" have been observed. In addition to giving an unmistakable warning, the rum- bier surface provides an improved surface for stopping and starting In winter. For the technically minded, Marsh supplies these construction details: 1-inch screened slag precoated with asphaltic liquid is used. The binder is petroleum asphalt with a penetration 100-120. One rumbler strip, one lane in width and 300 feet in length, requires nine tons of aggregate and 116 gallons of asphalt. This formula is said to be economical in cost and satisfactory as to wear.
