WARNING TO MOTORISTS
Six traffic fatalities occurred in July, compared with 12 in the same month in 1941, 18 in 1942, eight in 1943, and six in 1944. Commenting on these figures, the Commissioner of Transport, Mr. G. L. Laurenson. said that with the increased petrol allowance there would soon be many more cars on the highways. Most of the drivers would lack regular practice at the wheel and would have relaxed their previous habits of caution. Unless all road-users cooperated in the exercise of courtesy and care there would soon be the pre-war total of 20 to 30 road fatalities a month.
