Police Chief Lentz Warns He Will Enforce Law Against Child Drivers, Feb. 5, 1919

From the Hickory Daily Record, Feb. 5, 1919

Will Enforce a Law Against Kid Drivers

Chief Lentz authorized the Record to announce this afternoon that he intended to enforce strictly the state law prohibiting the running of motor vehicles by persons under 16 years of age. If people whose children drive cars want the law removed, they can appeal to the legislature, which is now in session, the chief said; he would enforce it.

Several narrow escapes from accidents have been reported lately and today the chief was served notice that if he did not enforce this law that papers would be taken out against him. The chief says he is going to do it.
