In Utah last year mere were 7.6H9 recorded motor vehicle accidents, in which 3,706 people were injured and 199 killed. If 5,700 of those accidents proved to result from law violations, there were undoubtedly many more drivers who committed violations and got away with it for the time being. Never forget that statistics prove beyond i shadow of a doubt that sooner or later the habitual hab-itual violator runs out of luck and straight into trouble. With the rapid increase in motor vehicle registrations reg-istrations in Utah, highway travel wil become more dangerous every day unless all of us use just plain common sense. If Utah citizens are to enjoy the distinct pleasures and advantages of the automobile auto-mobile as they rightly should they must faithfully observe the simple rules of the road which have been written solely to protect all of us from injury and sudden death. These rules must be carefully taught, soundly enforced and constantly remembered. This calls for the energetic ener-getic and wholehearted cooperation not only of law enforcement agencies, traffic engineers and educators, but also -every driver and pedestrian in the state. When it comes to safety, we're all in the same boat there are no exceptions. : of communication has brffen, not the least of them being your editorW staff. We are finding it rather difficult to track down the news without the aid of phone service, and we would appreciate it if those of you who know of news items would report them to us. We are grateful to those kind souls who brought items in this week, saving us much time in preparing your newspaper. We went by the rodeo grounds the other day, and found them flooded by recent storms. Perhaps a few more warm days will dry out the arena and bleachers enough so the committee will be able to make improvement plans for this year's performance, perfor-mance, a mere ten weeks away. A former Lehi resident was in the office during dur-ing the week and was high in his praise of the improvements being made in the Main Street business district. He remarked, "It seems good to see all the buildings filled up, and most of the vacant spots occupied." There are still a few unoccupied un-occupied building spots, but if building is as rapid in the future as it has been in the past two years, it will not be long before building space in the business area will be at a premium. YOU'VE HEARD IT BEFORE, BUT The wet weather of last week reminded your editor of the time Pat and Mike were trying to catch the drips from the leaky roof, and after unsuccessfully placing. all the pans and buckets through the house, Pat remarked, "Sure, I'M thinking we should be dryer outside in the wet." Rastus: "I suttinly hopes I'se sick. I'd sho hate to feel like dis when I'se well." Spring has at last come to Lehi, with the warm sunny days following the cold storms of last week. Early fruit trees are in blossom, as are the forsythia bushes and daffodils, with other early-blooming early-blooming shrubs and flowers just opening their buds. After Friday's clean-up day, the town should be able to really settle back and enjoy the beauty of early spring.
