Don't 'Get-away Quickly' ? One very ? important factor' in connec tion with the wear on tyres— which. many motorists probably do not realize— is the quick acceleration of the modern car. uir manufacturers are, equipping- auto mobiles with engines of higher Rpeca capa city, and some advertise as a taUdng point the 'quick get-away.' . It is becoming the tendency of motorists to step on the gas and to accelerate the speed of the car as quickly as possible, particularly after being held up1 at street intersections by the traffic, at railway crossings, &c.
