U.S. Has Good Word For Women Drivers (8-23-40)

The Pittsburgh Press (August 23, 1940)

Washington, Aug. 23 –
Front seat women drivers, according to the Public Roads Administration, drive almost as fast as men and with fewer accidents.

The PRA also found in a survey of Connecticut traffic – without intent to promote family arguments – that:

  • Younger persons drive faster than their elders.
  • Those who did not own the auto drove faster than those who owned their cars.
  • Drivers sped into cities faster than they left them.
