THE N.R.M.A. 20,000 MARK PASSED [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

THE NJR.M.A. ? ♦— : ? 20,000 MARK PASSED The 20,000 mark has been passed by the New ' South ' Wales branch of the National Eoads and Motoring Associa tion in the enrolment during the past week of 240 additional members. The metropolitan total was 174, and the country's contribution of 69 includes 25 in Newcastle and 25 in Wagea. The remarkable growth of the asso ciation is indicated by the fact that at the beginning of the year the member ship stood at only 12,042^ — the differ ence being 7985. If every driver on the road had an Al certificate of health it is doubtful whether the highways would be safer. That great uncertain factor — the pedestrian (not medically examined) — would continue to upset calculations.
