This is a ca.1912 Gasolene Engineer's Protective Association member's badge. This badge is from New York City. The badge depicts an eagle holding a ribbon in its beak, perched atop a device that may represent an early gasoline motor. The association was formed to help the police enforce the "Rules of the Road." The members of this group were all drivers of integrity that respected and followed the driving laws. Many of its members were chauffeurs who did their job to prevent "Joy rides" and drunk driving.
