Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"Very often we see screaming headlines in our favorite daily paper announcing “man killed by reckless driver” or “four injured in head-on auto crash,” or something similar.

"It is not difficult to secure a license to drive a car. All that is necessary is for the applicant to be seventeen years of age or over and pass a simple written and road test.

"The dangers of the big city, due to the carelessness ef some drivers, have been compared to the more primeval terrors of the jungle.

"You will find this story absorbing from the first line to the last, and so convincing that you can easily picture it as a true narrative of the future."
