AUTOIST LIKED SIDEWALK.

The New York Times
April 24, 1914


Fluttered Pedestrians in Times Sq. by Running Car Up Over the Curb.

Pedestrians in Times Square had a scare early last evening when a runabout, operated by a young man, who later said he was Charles Dowling, 24 years old, of 33 West Forty-eighth Street, ran upon the southwest corner sidewalk of Forty-third Street, at Seventh Avenue, and then when it got to the street again partially accomplished a figure eight before taking to the sidewalk once more near the Times Square uptown Subway kiosk.  Again it left the sidewalk and was heading across Broadway, when Traffic Policeman Thompson jumped on board and jammed on the brakes in time to save it from colliding with a surface car.

Thompson locked up Dowling in the West Forty-seventh Street Station charged with intoxication.  Dowling said he owned the machine, which bore a New Jersey number.
