Donating Traffic Safety Education Materials to Children

Traffic Safety Picture Book and Storytelling Card Set

The Toyota Nagoya Education Center, Incorporated (Chubu Nippon Driver School) has developed easy-to-understand educational materials that use a baby chick character named Cuccu. These materials explain to young children about the dangers of suddenly running out into the street and the proper way of crossing the street.
