FROM AN AUTOPHOBIAC.

The New York Times
January 3, 1905


Likens the Motor Car to War or the Plague.

To the Editor of The New York Times:
Permit me to assure you that thousands of families, living in city or country, having read your sensible and just editorial "Automobile Speeds," in The Times of this day, feel the greatest gratitude to you for the same.

With the exception of war and pestilence, the automobile drivers are the greatest scourge that has inflicted itself upon a peaceable and happy country. Nobody is safe against them on city streets or country roads. Their foul and ill-smellin fuel poisons the very atmosphere. Their stables are nuisances to all neighbors, and the streets where they are located are not fit to live on.

Anybody, like myself, who has a family, and children going to school, cannot throw off this anxiety until all members of the house are safely in bed in the evening. The people look to The Times for assistance to induce legislative bodies to render relief from the present condition, which is well-nigh insufferable.

New York, Feb. 1, 1905. A.C.H.
