JIM: Adair County News 92 years ago - Enforce the Law

Compiled by JIM

Automobile drivers should be required by law to slow up while passing through the square and driving upon the streets of Columbia. There have been several bad collisions in Columbia in the past fifteen days, and unless fast driving is stopped, someone is going to get killed.

The rate of speed in the corporate limits is stated in an ordinance passed by the town authorities some time ago. The town marshal should read it and then enforce it. A life is worth more than all the machines that are in this town and those that come into the town. (Transcribed from the Adair County News, October 9, 1923.)
