Mr and Mrs PQedstrian Looh out for cars without WEED Tire Chains BE VERY CAREFUL whenever you cross a slippery street in front of oncoming motor cars. Pedestrians take it for granted that all drivers have their motor cars under perfect control and can make quick stops whenever necessary and under all circumstances. The speed of a vehicle moving toward you is very deceiving. If the driver happens to be one of those careless fellows who so often take chances without Weed Tire Chains, you are likely to be run down. Such a type of driver is powerless to stop in an emergency. He can apply the brakes-yes-but the car will continue its forward momentum or skid over into the curb-one never knows just where it's going to land. When you consider that motor car accidents occur even on dry streets, you must appreciate how extreme the danger of crossing before cars operating on wet and slippery streets with out Weed Tire Chains. Suppose you slipped on the greasy pavement or stumbled in front of one of those chainless cars. In such event the chances are a hun dred to one that the most skillful driver would not be able to save you. When ALL motor vehicle drivers "Put on Weed Tire Chains whenever it rains" and use discretion in the manipulation of clutch, brakes and steering wheel to assist in meeting the uncertain surface conditions, then acci dents under such conditions will practically cease to happen.
