Speeding in Motorcars Linked To Insanity

Post by Karen on Fri 25 Mar 2011 - 0:03

It is very interesting to hear that Dr. Forbes Winslow, the famous specialist on mental diseases, thinks the man who says he is Jack the Ripper in New York may possibly be telling the truth. Dr. Winslow has long and carefully studied the ways of criminals, and has always looked upon crime as a disease. Several times he has been able to save criminals, who were really insane, from capital punishment. Once, in New York, he had several well-known experts against him, but he argued for the irresponsibility of the accused so valiantly that he was able to convince the jury, and the man was treated as insane.

Naturally, Dr. Winslow has any amount of explanations to give of the increase of insanity in modern times. One of the causes he is inclined to find in motoring at an inordinate speed. Let motorists beware. Their fierce method of getting about produces brain fog. Dr. Winslow has shown that of those who go into asylums every year a large proportion is taken from the class of engine-drivers, and we may expect to see numbers of the "smart-set" going mad if they do not content themselves with a more modest speed.
