The True Traffic Law

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Bobby was looking forward to the time when he would be far enough along in school to belong to the school police. He liked to watch the older boys hold up the stream of traffic with their bright orange and red "stop" signs, and to see the little children go safely across the busy street hand in hand. When he went downtown with Mother she showed him how to watch the green and red traffic lights and then cross at the right time; and Daddy did the same when they all rode in the car together.

"You see, Bobby." Daddy explained, "the traffic laws are to protect everybody. When there are a great many cars, or people, none of us would know when to go or stop if we didn't have a law to tell us. We obey the traffic law because we know it will help us all to go along safely."

Bobby understood, and when he played with his little cars he made them obey "Stop" and "Go" signs.
