Effects of Front-Wheel Stability on Public Safety 340082

AFTER submitting evidence to show the number and character of highway accidents involving motor vehicles, Mr. Olen points out that there are many factors that affect the front-axle stability of a vehicle and goes on to discuss the relation of these factors to public safety on the highways.
He presents the results of tests comparing the effort required on a four-wheel-drive and a two-wheel-drive truck to hold the steering wheel at a given angle when turning circles on a smooth, dry pavement, as well as test data bearing on various other phases of front-axle stability.
