State set to enforce proof of insurance law

In December, the California Department of Motor Vehicles will mail a request for written proof of motor vehicle insurance to more than 200,000 motorists who had driver’s license suspensions placed on hold during a two-year court review of the law requiring that proof …

In announcing the notices will be mailed, DMV director Del Pierce said he thought a large number of the 200,000 motorists receiving this notice may now have insurance coverage. “If that’s the case,” he said, “they need only send us a California Insurance Proof Certificate, which they can get from their insurance company.”

Pierce advised that those receiving the notice must send the insurance certificate, also called an SR1P, to the DMV within 30 days from the date of the notice or their driver license will be suspended …

Centennials Fund Gains

Public subscriptions to the $20,000 fund sought to be raised by subscription for the support of El Dorado County’s participation in California’s three centennial years reached a total of $2,468 Monday night.

This is according to a report made to a meeting of the county centennials committee by J. H. Quigley, treasurer of the organization.

Pneumatic Tires Unnecessary

By a simple device placed between the running gear and the body of a heavy automobile and given its first trial recently, the problem of the pneumatic tire may possibly be solved. The device consists of small springs regulated by an air cushion and carries the body of the vehicle over a rough surface as comfortably as it could be carried by pneumatic tires … The test was made on an automobile of forty horse-power and weighing about 2,400 pounds … The automobile was driven over the roughest pavements that could be found on the West Side, New York, thoroughfares. How important such an invention will be to the automobile trade may be realized when it is remembered how much of the trouble encountered in automobiling is from puncturing and the disablement of pneumatic tires.
