It 1b my belief that all cltlzons
of North I'latttc arc prcud of our city,
and that we ure desirous of having all
things dono and kept in ns ordorly a
manner as possible.
liolioving this I make tho following
requests concerning ownors and driv
ers of cars or other vehicles. Every
driver should.ncver fall to turn to tho
right when passing cars or rigs of any
sort. Never turn to tho left but al
ways to tho right. It Is important to
observe this rule and complaints have
boon offered thnt several drivers are
not doing this.
In stoppping your cars on tho main
streets of tho town, always stop on
tho right side of tho street. Head your
car toward tho curb at about a 40
degrco angle, and it will always be
easy to back out onto tho main street
when you wish to. I am depending
upon you helping mo in this matter
which will improve conditions very
materially in tho town.
In turning corners, never turn on a
short Bwlng, but go on far to the othor
sldo of tho street upon which you"VTsh
to go beforo making your turn. In
this way much danger will be avoided.
Kindly do not bo careless as to
your speed. Some aro not doing the
right tiling in this line. Keep within
tho limit whlrh Is 12 miles per
hour. With your co-operation, all of
these llttlo things will be looked after
without any friction whacver, and I
am counting on you to help me.
