Dependable Protection for Pedestrians and Car Owners Weed Tire Chains It seems unfair that a few careless owners and drivers who do not, use Weed Tire Chains should imperil pedestrians and others who use this reasonable precaution to prevent skidding accidents. When anautomobile skids on a crowded thoroughfare it is more of a danger to other vehicles and persons than to itself and its occupants. There is nothing so maddening or so nerve racking as to have another motor ist skid into you imperiling the lives of your passengers and smashing your car, especially when you know it could have been prevented by the use of Weed Tire Chains. Some of the larger cities are greatly agitated over the skidding menace and committees have been formed to draft stringent ordinances for the protection of pedestrians and road users. It is high time that careful, sane motor ists adoplt some means to protect them selves and pedestrians and prevent the awful loss of life and property caused by skidding. The courts should not regard skidding as an unavoidable accident when Weed Tire Chains, the proven device for prevent ing it, are so easily available and at so reasonable a price. See that you do not lay yourself open to severe criticism. Always put on your Weed Tire Chains when the roads are slippery and uncertain. American Chain Company, Inc.
