Town and Around: Wellington Highlights

Television (Full Length) – 1968

An effort is being made to control the flow of pedestrians at intersections in the same way that traffic is controlled. But in spite of these controls aimed at keeping the life of the pedestrian, the pedestrians aren't following the rules. In fact right now the Wellington Traffic Department has something like forty prosecutions pending for jaywalking.
