Irish Rules of the Road Booklet- 1957

cover rules of road ireland 1957
Issued in 1957 by Ireland’s Minister for Local Government, this appears to be our first Rules of the Road booklet. It is a neatly designed, pocket sized, 32 page book which cost 2d. Some of its charming illustrations were used again in the 1967 version, which we featured in an earlier post.

I’ve scanned in the cover (with added biro) and some pages below including the Stopping Distances diagram, which surely was a contender for the Irish “Infographic of the Year” award in 1957.
