Automobiles Tabooed

Wilkes-Barre Times – August 9, 1900

Camden, NJ, Aug 9—At a meeting of the Camden County board of freeholders steps were taken looking to the exclusion of automobiles from roads in the county. Assemblyman E. T. Gill, chairman of the stone road committee, informed the board that the presence of automobiles on the Camden County roads was a menace to the safety of other travelers owing to the reckless manner in which they were operated. The solicitor of the board was directed to report the best method of ruling the automobiles off the roads or of regulating the speed to ten miles an hour. If they are prevented from traversing the roads automobile trips to Atlantic City will not be possible.
