Isle of Man road safety

Date(s): 1930-1950

Creator(s): Royston, J. Walter

Scope & Content: School children playing games. A ball rolls into the path of an oncoming car at Victoria Crescent. A woman calls the police from a nearby phone box.

A school girl pulls the hair of another girl and then runs into the path of an oncoming car. The result is a car accident, with the driver of the car unconscious in the road, along with the school girl. People rush over to help. The incident is replayed, however, this time, the girl does not pull the other girl's hair and so the car accident is averted!

Cyclists speed down a hill into the path of a car. The cyclist is unconscious on the road with her bike under the wheel of the car.
