Women Drivers Asked
To Have Safetv Check
RALEIGH "Now is the time.
to have your car safety checked!"
Mias Koy Ingram, director of the
Motor Vehicle Deparemtn's regis-'
tration division, passed along this
advice to all Tar Heel lady drivers J
this week as she urged them to
keep theii- cars in good repair for1
the slimmer travel season ahead.
All homemakers should be inter
ested in having the family car saf
ety checked, she said. The first is
that a check will reduce the chan- 1
ces of any member of the family
beint; involved in a traffic acci
dent. The second reason is that it is
more economical to repair a car
when trouble is just starting than
it is after the damage has become
"All of us," Miss Ingram said,
"are interested in our family's
safety and pocketbook. So we
ought to see to it that the family
car gets a thorough safety check
Women who drive, she said, can
take the car in for a check them
selves. Those who do not drive can
urge some member of the family
to perform this Important duty.
Miss Ingram's colleague lit the
vehicles agency, Col. James R.
Smith, highway patrol comman
der, offered this tell point check for
motorists: brakes, headlights, rear
and atop lights, tires, wheel align
ment, exhaust system and muffler,
windshield wipers, glass, horn and
