Children Conduct Traffic Courts (Nov, 1937)
Something about this picture gives me the willies. Maybe it’s the serious expression on the “judges” face, but I just feel like something bad is about to happen.
Children Conduct Traffic Courts
School children conduct a dozen unique traffic courts in Hamtramck, Mich. Pupils who violate safety rules by jaywalking, hitching auto rides, or crossing streets against the lights, are given tickets and must appear before the student judges. If found guilty, they are penalized by losing some of their privileges or by being given extra work to do. As a result of the scheme, this city of 50,000 inhabitants has established a remarkable record for safety among children of school age.
