CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward
Island.— The use of motorcycles in
the tiny Province of Prince Edward
Island is restricted on all sides by a
number of new regulations, announce-
ment regarding which has just been made
by the authorities.

It is now impossible for the owner
or user of a motorcycle or, in fact, any
moior vehicle, to ride to church on Sun-
days if he wanted to — unless he hap-
pens to be the clergyman himself. Ac-
cording to the latest code or rules, a
rider cannot approach with his machine
any closer to a church than 300 yards
except in the cities. The riding of a
machine on Sundays between 9 a. m.
and 1 p. m. and between 6 and 9 p. m.
anywhere is absolutely prohibited, except
by clergymen or physicians who desire
to do to in the performance of their
duties.

Certain roads of the Province are closed
to all motor traffic on Tuesdays. Fridays
and Saturdays ; others are closed on
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sun-
days, while still others are closed on
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. One
road is closed only on Tuesdays and Fri-



Another interesting regulation compels
a rider or motorist to stop his machine
upon meeting a person riding or driving a
horse or horses on any road outside of
the limits of an incorporated city or
town. Upon overtaking a carriage or
wagon a rider must take "reasonable care."
