Briggs Corp. v. Public Utilities Commission

In Briggs Corp. v. Public Utilities Commission, 148 Conn. 678, 174 A.2d 529 (1961), the Supreme Court interpreted that phrase to mean that "the benefits to be derived from the operation of the motor vehicle will not be limited to a few persons in a particular locality. It means benefit to the public generally, and, in the determination of public convenience and necessity, the effect of the commissioner's action upon the whole public instead of a small part of it must be considered."
