Once Too Often Two pairs of Tire Chains were in the tool box, but he did not stop to put them on. An evil impulse tempted him to continue over the'wet pave ments with bare tires. He ventured on for a few blocks,and then, in a flash, came the frightful skid leaving death in its wake. How strange it is that some motorists are sometimes tempted to take a chance. They carry Tire Chains in their tool boxes, but they do not put them on at the first indication of slippery going. They wait too long once too often and disastrous skidding accidents result. "Put on Tire Chains at the First Indication of Wet and Slippery Streets" is a Safety First Commandment of vital importance. It should always be obeyed by all motorists for the protection of all road users. "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
