Safety First

Learn your kerb drill and help to prevent accidents

Safety First card game embodying the Kerb Drill, published by John Jaques & Son Ltd, early 1940s. 1942 was when the Kerb Drill was introduced. I remember it well. When I first went to school in 1945 we were taught, through play–acting, how to cross a road safely. This was long before the Green Cross Road Man and Tufty. Mind you in our street of 100 houses there were only 2 cars even though you could buy one for a few hundred pounds in those days. See the Rules
