 Typed description of Ad Club Traffic Safety Booth
Text: The joint Seattle Safety Council-Seattle Junior Advertising Club booth measured six feet across, eight feet deep and ten feet high. It was finished in black and yellow highway stripes on three sides. Across the top of the boot were the slogans “Speed Kills” and Courtesy Saves Lives. The Seattle Traffic Engineers Department mounted various highway markers on the sides of the booth, as well as installing a three-way corner signal in front of the booth. The controller box was in the booth proper, with the inner mechanisms exposed so that the public could see the circuits close as the light operated on a ten-second interval. Across the back of the booth were photos donated by the Washington State Patrol showing accidents that occurred during the past year. Juniors staffing the booth wore white coveralls while on duty.
