“The Most Murderous Invention.”

“The Most Murderous Invention.”

“The 'Sunday Times' may well say that the motor vehicle has proved itself the most murderous invention ever let loose upon the national highways. An average of more than 14 persons were killed every day last year in street accidents (Great Britain) and nearly 150,000 were injured in that year. On the Railways only 13 persons lost their lives in train accidents during the year 1926.”—J. E. Allen, in “Edinburgh Review,” October, 1928.
