New Transportation Laws Proposed 100 Years Ago

An article in the Spokesman-Review today talks about transportation ordinance that were proposed 100 years ago in relation to the proliferation of automobiles.

One required all cars to be parked "parallel with the curb" downtown, which makes you wonder how people were parking before.

The second ordinance set a time limit for cars to park downtown- one hour- and the third was an anti-jaywalking law for safety reasons.
