Purpose of Study

Today, man probably travels more than a hundred times as far during his lifetime as did the man of fifty years ago. This change took place primarily because of the invention of the automobile. This invention has proved to be one of man's greatest pieces of work. It has brought us mobility and all but freed us from the limitations of time and place.

Many problems have arisen since the invention of the first American Automobile. We are faced with the problem of moving traffic efficiently and confronted with a more serious problem, that of moving traffic safely. These problems affect the life of every modern family.

Not enough citizens of this country have been disturbed by the hazards caused by the increased use of the automobile. As a result of this negligence, many hundreds of people are losing their lives annually. Texas alone has more than twenty-three hundred deaths each year caused by auto accidents.
