Highway Safety-Through the Eyes of a Motor Vehicle Administrator 510204
THIS is the 1951 SAE Beecroft Memorial Lecture, which was presented by Mr. King after he had received the 1951 SAE David Beecroft Memorial Award for having “served the cause of highway safety with distinction.”
Mr. King shows the part that should be taken by the motor vehicle bureau in the attainment of a good highway safety record.
He discusses the problems of the administrator of the bureau and points out that the key to his success-and the success of the highway safety program of his state - depends upon the administration of his office, and how well it is conducted, directed and managed.
Presentation of the award to Mr. King was made by SAE President Dale Roeder at the opening of the President’s Highway Safety Conference, Washington, D. C, June 13, 1951.
Mr. King gave this lecture at the annual meeting of the National Safety Congress, Chicago, Oct. 13, 1951.
