TRAFFIC NOTICE.
In July 1951 I inserted a Notice in
the papers informing all concerned
that the runways at Coolidge Field are

not public highways, and under no
circumstances must vehicles of any
kind use them.

It has recently become a practice
for many drivers of vehicles to drive
on or across the runways. This
constitutes a grave danger to the
landing and taking off of planes.

I am inserting this Notice as a final
warning that the runways are NOT to
be used by vehicles as a highway.
