Two educational postcards reminding the children about the road rules. Artist M. Fuks, 1975-1976

The first card also has a poem on back (even if no one is marked as author):

See, kes kord tänava seadusi teab,
enam naljalt ohtu ei satu.
Miilitsasaua ees peatuma peab
autojuht, olgu kui ohjeldamatu.
