publicity designed to enhance children's safety on the roads included the distribution of a teaching aid (a wallchart and teaching notes) to all primary schools in support of the green cross man campaign in 1976. a survey was conducted amongst teachers to assess their awareness of, attitudes towards, and use of this aid. it was found that 90 per cent of the 422 teachers who replied had seen the wallchart. of the 380 teachers who had seen it, 90 per cent said it was currently on display in the school while 43 per cent of those who had seen it had used it as a basis for some road safety teaching. thirty-seven per cent of those who had seen the wallchart had also seen the notes. thus, although some teachers did criticise the wallchart, it is clear that it was used in schools and that its arrival stimulated a lot of teachers to do road safety teaching.(a)
