Toucans & Lollipops - Road Safety at Riverside

This display celebrates today’s School Crossing Patrol workers, also known as Lollipop People, whose role is crucial for children’s safety but also in highlighting the dangers of road traffic. Featured objects reveal changes in road safety education across 80 years including a rare poster from the 1930s and a children’s highway code from the 1940s. The display is brought right up to date with a current Lollipop Lady’s uniform, a Ziggy road safety mascot, and fully-operational traffic lights which visitors can interact with on our miniature road crossing.
