| GENERAL ELECTION AXD MOTOR CARS. TO THE EDITOR. I Sir.—In view of t Le- widespread interest ta ken in the question of motor trafifc, aucl of the fact that a new Act of Parliament dealing with the subject must be p.-is- ed this rear, may I call at- tention to the great importance of taking steps now on the eve of the General Election to pro- tect the rights of the pubhc at !a.:?p w?th regard tothcuK'ofihfroad?-? Ti?-\t?'y la:g'i' n¡mtùcr j of complaints rccciYcd by this Lo&guo from "II parts of the country sliews that motor traffic as at picrent conducted is the cause of serious dunger. injury, annoyance and discomfoit; and that. the evils complained of are mainly caused by those wlio sl-c,d foi purposes of pleasure The Automobile Club has issued a circular urg- ing owners not to lend a motor-car to a Parlia- mentary candidate without exacting a pledge that lie will vote "for (lie abobt on of all artificial speed limits." on the ground that such limits arc calculated to relieve driveis of (.heir respon- sibility to drive, at all times with eaut'on—thus displaying a solicitude for tho public safety which. having togaid to the acts of reckless driving by motorists which occur da.y. is worthy of the groat Mr. Peel;eniff him-eelf. A driver who, knowing he may on no occasion lawfully drive over 20 mi!c? an hour. infers that he 1'1. drive a.t th:Ü p?oo round shatp comers, or through M?owd? &ti\.«ts. or (as has been dcnc? through a Hock of sheep, must lack invellige.noe to such a degree that- lie cannot he safely on trusted with driving on the public roads Tho Highways Protection League would urge l' upon ali electors who do not ca.re (o trust their 1 in,.q a.nd pioperty to tins tender mercies of Motor Clubs the importance of obtaining from Parliamentary candidates satisfactory answers to the following queet-ioiis — 1. When the new Motor-car Bill is Ix-fcro Par- liament will you, if elected, vote in favour of j oither mamtaining or reducing the present maxi- 2.
