in any action growing out of any accident or collision in which the nonresident may be involved while operating a motor vehicle upon such highway, and which provides for service in such case by leaving a copy of the process and a fee with the registrar or in his office, but conditions the sufficiency of the service upon the sending of notice of it forthwith and a copy of the process to the defendant by registered mail and upon his actually receiving and receipting for the same, and which allows the nonresident when so served such continuances as may be necessary to afford him a reasonable opportunity to defend the action, held not in conflict with the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
