Front Cover

?In the case of an accident, or of any kind of clash with the police, silence was never more golden.'
?Most of the tight-fitting hats of today are quite suitable for motoring, but there is one little point to guard against, and that is too tight a fitting. It is bad for the hair, makes it greasy, and quickly removes the cherished wave, and if worn for long hours at the wheel causes bad headaches.'
?Courteous driving rests largely upon the ability to see the other fellow's point of view. How would you like to have a klaxon blown in your ear; would you appreciate having your best Sunday clothes splashed with mud; would you like to have to push a pram across the tram lines at the double to avoid apparent annihilation of the whole family?'
This guide for the woman motorist, first published in 1928, is filled with advice on the art of driving and maintaining one's car, as well as tips on such crucial topics as what to wear when driving, how to prepare for a picnic stop, and how to cope with erratic drivers in mainland Europe.
