The article focuses on road rules in British Columbia. The author noted that there are many laws of the U.S. which would do very badly when introduced into Canada. Under British Columbia's road law, drivers should always be on the left-hand side. With the advent of the automobile, the incompatibility of West Coast road rules became a more pressing concern from the standpoint both of safety and commerce. Several proposed changes to the province's traffic law are also addressed.
