Assistant Home Economics Agent
The 4-H'Clmb is offering a new
project this year entitled “Au
tomotive Care and Safety”. This
project has been developed as a
national program for boys and
‘girls who are at least 15 years
of age. It is a three-unit pro
ject and may be completed by
a member meeting the require
ments of one unit.
In North Carolina each year
100,000 boys and girls reach driv
ing age and aipply for driver’s
licenses to operate motor ve
hicles. The minimum age for li-l
censing is 16 ( years, so most
youths at age 15 are preparing
f seriously to drive. Fifty-seven
of all ■ traffic .accidents
in this state in 1958 occurred in
fural areas. Fifteen percent of
all traffic accidents which oc
curred involved boys and girls
under 21 years cf age. So we
do feel that there is a definite
need for this program and it is
a real challenge to young peo
ple to do everything to improve
■their driving records. ,
The objectives of the Automo
tive Care and Safety Project are
to help boys and girls develop:
An understanding of the im
portance of the motor vehicle on
the American way of life.
A clear knowledge of highway
!afety and proper attitudes of
An understanding of traffic
regulations and other laws relat
ed to operation and ownership
portance of following the laws,
of motor vehicles, and the im-
An ability to perform elemen
tary car maintenance operations
~ such as cleaning and polishing J
a car, care of tires- and check-,
ing the radiator, battery, etc. 1
A knowledge of the basic parts i
of the car and the principles of
their maintenance and operatibn. |
An understanding of the prin
ciples of. force, speed, center of
gravity,' etc., applicable to safe
motor vehicle operation. j
