TWhi ick-Skinned Driver You know him. You have suffered from his ways. Your protests are like arrows against the armor of his thick, hippopotamus hide. Nothing but the steel-jacketed bullets of an indignant public opinion will make him realize that his slip-shod driving jeopardizes the life of everyone in his path. The thick-skinned driver leaves Weed Tire Chains in the locker when careful drivers put them on their tires. The thick-skinned driver comes recklessly out of side streets; the thick-skinned driver cuts corners; the thick-skinned driver never inspects his brakes or steering gear; the thick-skinned driver does not signal before turn ing or stopping; the thick-skinned driver does not give a warning signal of his approach. Let us get together. Let us mould the steel-jacketed bullets of public opinion that will pierce his thick skin; make him realize that he must consider the rights of motorists and pedestrians. Maybe he has a conscience and the thick hide is thoughtlessness. Theyar e Maybe he has only a sense of fear. The bullets can reach that too. CHAINS Show this to the thick-skinned driver. Let him choose his own o when class. And keep on the firing line till every human hippo who is the name muscle-bound above the ears, is driven from the road. "WEED" is stamped on every H ook This is a sequel to our famous advertisement:" The Slip-Shod Driver".
