This Roller Safety Device Sweeps Away Fallen Pedestrian (Mar, 1931)
I just can’t understand why this isn’t standard on all vehicles…
This Roller Safety Device Sweeps Away Fallen Pedestrian
TRUCKS equipped with the new safety device shown in the photo at the left will literally sweep a fallen pedestrian before it and thus save him from being crushed to almost certain death beneath the heavy wheels.
DEADLY MONOXIDE GAS PIPED OUT OF GARAGE (Jul, 1934)
I wonder how many mechanics got carbon monoxide poisoning before these were standard…
DEADLY MONOXIDE GAS PIPED OUT OF GARAGE
Danger of carbon monoxide poisoning is eliminated in a New York City garage by a blower system with junction boxes at convenient points. To these boxes are attached lengths of flexible hose which are connected to the exhaust pipe of the automobile being tested or repaired. In this way the noxious fumes have no chance to escape into the workroom.
COMMENT and REVIEW – Auto Safety – Gun Violence (Oct, 1923)
So apparently the controversy over gun control has a long and oft repeated history.
Also, I love the idea of giving speeders an “insanity test”.
Longer than that. When Chicago was founded as a town in 1830 apparently one of the first laws passed was a ban on firearms. New York State passed the Sullivan Act in 1911.
COMMENT and REVIEW
Pistols and Automobiles Kill 20,000.
THE count of the death toll from revolvers and automobiles for 1922 is completed and rolls up the astounding total of 10,000 from pistols and revolvers, and about the same number from automobiles. In both counts many hundred, if not several thousand, who died weeks or months after the accident, and in the case of revolvers, many more who were killed and the bodies concealed and not yet found, were not included.
