LAING & MUCKEY Phone 464 North Dodge GREER colonmi fURnKE SERVICE VMIH"' Room FOR TRAFFIC! /^REATER SAFETY on the highways! Wider pave^^ ments! These popular demands can be satisfied only •by completely modernizing Iowa's main roads with new concrete resurfacing and widening. Many old* concrete roads—which have served traffic well and earned their cost many times over—are only 18 feet wide. In hilly areas, curves and grades shorten sight distances dangerously. All types of vehicles need wider, straighter concrete . pavements for safety in today's faster, heavier traffic. In the last 12 years official counts on 10 main roads show travel by commercial vehicles has increased an average of 55%- At night, when visibility is reduced and when cargo carriers are on the move, wide highways are especially necessary for maximum safety—highways of light-colored concrete, which improves visibility because it reflects more light than any other pavement. The picture-diagram above shows how old concrete roads can be msjde wider—safer—stronger— with concrete resurfacing that utilizes the original investment in the old pavement. Speak up! Urge your state highway official* to modernize Iowa's main highways. Insist on modern concrete pavement for comfort, safety and wise investment of highway funds.
