Green Cross Code Badge 1990s

Green Cross Code Badge 1990s
The "Green Cross Man", portrayed by David Prowse (Darth Vader), first appeared in 1970 as a replacement for the "Kerb Drill" of my generation, the latter being deemed too "military" for 1970s children (?!). It continues today.

Not necessarily; the Code is::

THINK! Find the safest place to cross, then stop.
2.STOP! Stand on the pavement near the kerb.
3.USE YOUR EYES AND EARS! Look all around for traffic, and listen.
4.WAIT UNTIL IT'S SAFE TO CROSS! If traffic is coming, let it pass.
5.LOOK AND LISTEN! When it's safe, walk straight across the road.
6.ARRIVE ALIVE! Keep looking and listening
