Controlled Crossings - leaflets

I am looking for any leaflets or fliers that you have produced about how to use a signal controlled crossing - puffin, pelican and toucan. No longer available from DfT (and it wasn't a very exciting leaflet anyway)- have you produced anything better, suitable for use with Primary age children and their parents that you would be able to share, please?

Safer Steps

Hi Honor,

We have just worked with the Berkshire authorities on our Safer Steps programme which is a booklet & DVD for circulation to primary aged children. I know its not quite the 'flyer' option that you were looking for.

You can review the booklet (digital publication) here:

If you would like a copy of the DVD I will gladly send a copy of that through to you as well.

For the Berkshire authorities we pieced together a range of options that they can buy into depending on how much they are investing into the initiative. Some have gone for booklets & DVDs others have gone for associated branded promotional materials (gym bags, reflective materials etc.) Each authority can also have their own version of the workbook with their own branding on of course.

Feel free to get in touch if its of any interest.

Kind regards
