Looking Back: Watch for Children, Warns Auto Club
Excerpt from the January 5, 1937, Paso Robles Times
The holidays are over and children have returned to their class rooms. During the past two weeks, some motorists may have relaxed their caution when driving past school yards says the Public Safety Department of the National Automobile Club.
The Club asks you to redouble your alertness when in the vicinity of school buildings. Particularly drivers should be cautious during the winter season, when streets are wet and icy a good part of the time. It’s a lot harder to control a car on a slick pavement than on a dry one.
Our school children are generally good pedestrians, but nevertheless motor vehicle accidents still take a greater toll among children of school age than any other type of accident.
Remember the children when you drive and go slow in school districts.

This “Looking Back” view at Paso Robles history comes from one of the hundreds of local newspapers in the Paso Robles Area Historical Society collection. Several local newspapers, dating from the 1800s, have reported on local, national and world events, providing priceless historical views of our community that are not available from any other source. The Historical Society is seeking community support for the multi-phased Newspaper Preservation Project to help fund the transfer of these aged and fragile pages to microfilm and digital images. See the society website for more information about becoming a member or donating to any phase of this project.
The Paso Robles Daily News is pleased to support this important project. Watch this space for future “Looking Back” articles.
