NURNBURG---- Safe driving certificates covering over 200,000 miles were awarded to 18 members of the Nurnburg Highway Patrol according to an announcement by the Commanding Officer Capt. P. J. St. John.


The certificates were presented to the men by Lt. Col. C. W. Clark, NMP Provost Marshal, at the recent opening of the Highway Patrol Safety and Traffic Information Room, located across the Provost Marshal's office, Further Strasse.


The certificates were signed by Brig. Gen. David L. Ruffner, Post CG, and were given to the men for driving 10,000 or more miles without an accident.


To make motorists and pedestrians more safety conscious the Nurnburg Highway Patrol is now operating a white patrol car equipped with a loud speaker which will tour the city and main roads throughout the Post in coordination with the German local and Landkreis police.
