Newstead Echo 100 years ago

Jun 26, 1918.

In the new regulations recently issued under the Motor Car Act, is the following:--- The head lights on motor cars must be frosted or dimmed on the upper half of the glass so that the rays of light do not rise more than four feet from the surface of the roadway for a reasonable distance ahead. The reason for this is that the lights, as at present, have the effect of temporarily blinding and confusing people coming along the road in an opposite direction, and thus tending towards accidents.
