Abstract

It is said that in Chicago the number of scorching automobiles using the red cross—which should mean that they are driven by physicians or hospital representatives—has increased so greatly of late that the police are suspicious that speed fiends are sailing under false colors. Considering that people with all sorts of moral qualifications (or lack of them) are driving automobiles, this is not impossible. Moreover, the blunting of conscience which makes so many otherwise respectable men wilfully violate the well-known ordinances as to speed, as well as the God-given rights of others, might lead to the temptation thus to evade the law.
