JOHNSON DRUG Arlington, Washington A Sign Your IS In You're driving on a dark-surfaced highway. The sky becomes overcast. It begins to rain. Traffic bunches up. You strain to see. "Slippery" warnings keep you tense. Then--suddenly you pass onto light-colored con- crete. What a relief! Traffic moves out. No "slippery" signs You know you're on a safer pavement:. Yes, the difference between a sickening swerve and a safe, quick stop often is the pavement. Concrete grips tires--helps you avoid accidents. Wet or dry, its gritty texture provides uniformly high skid resistance. Remember, no driver expects trouble but if it comes your chances are much better on concrete pavement.
