Drive and Live {Vintage How To Manual} on CD

288 pages. It is illustrated with black and white photos, drawings, and charts. Here is the description from the preface:

Within the brief period of forty years the automobile has changed American life and manners. Much as the broncho and the steam train gave new impetus to travel, so too the car has brought speed, efficiency, and ease to traveling America. Transportation, communication, and travel have been developed beyond the most superlative dreams of the manufacturers of forty years ago. A terrifying and baffling problem which staggers the nation has arisen during the last twenty years. It involves control of the driver and the automobile. CAN AMERICA CONTROL DRIVING?

In 1936, in spite of all the regulations of traffic officials, in spite of the jail sentences and penalties imposed by the courts, and in spite of the safety drives fostered by organizations throughout the country, 37,800 people were slaughtered outright, more than 100,000 were cruelly maimed and crippled for life, and more than a million were injured.

The cost of automobile accidents last year was greater than the cost of public education. That the mania for speed, power, and greed, so manifest in drivers, must be eradicated or curbed is evident.

Those who are physically unfit, mentally untrained, and socially unbalanced operate cars recklessly, negligently, or criminally on the highways. These drivers, a positive menace to life and property, must be controlled.

The police, the courts, the manufacturers, the automobile associations, and the safety councils seem powerless to stem the mounting tide of death and waste. Every force in America must join the crusade for safety. Education must accept the challenge! With the road and car engineers and the traffic police courts, the educational forces of the Nation must join. School, church, community organizations, business men's organizations, women's clubs, the radio, and the press must face the crisis courageously if the car is to be managed and the driver trained. Education must do the job. Safety must be secured.

This book is presented to assist in the fight against unsafe practices and in the crusade for sane driving on a Gift Quality CD. Includes the BONUS publication - Cars and How To Drive Them {1905}.
