Temporary Inconvenience and Dangers

Among the recent legal decisions affecting
the rights of automobilists on the public
highways, is the clear and strong opinion
by Judge Sutherland of the Rochester
municipal court, of New York. The conclusions
of the judge, as stated in that
opinion, are undoubtedly good law, and
the breadth of view displayed in that
opinion has been a material aid to the
whole industry. The concluding remarks
In the opinion referred to are as follows:

"The temporary inconvenience and dangers
incident to the introduction of these
modern and practical modes of travel
upon the highway must be subordinate
to the larger and permanent benefits to
the general public resulting from the
adoption of the improvements which science
and inventive skill have perfected."
