Safety Award For City Algona's excellent record of no pedestrian deaths for the 16 year period -ending December, 1964, received recognition last week with the presentation of the American Automobile Association Pedestrian Safety Award. The AAA Award, citing the city on its report in the evaluation of pedestrian records and program, was presented to Chief of Police Al Boekelman, left, by Wilson R. Morrison, safety consultant for the AAA Motor Club of Iowa. The marked reduction that has taken place in pedestrian fatalities over the years is the brightest spot in the entire traffic accident picture. Pedestrian fatalities in 1964 totaled 8,900, a reduction of 40 percent from the high point of 15,500 reached in 1937. Morrison said the National Board of Judges selected this city for citation from 63 cities in Iowa eligible for competition. The real award to the city, however, he stressed, was in pedestrian lives saved and the human. suffering averted. Almost every pedestrian accident results in serious injury or death. This makes it essential to place greater emphasis on pedestrian protection activities. The AAA Motor Club of Iowa paid special tribute to the police department and school officials for their cooperation with the local program.
