History of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents

Following a public meeting in Caxton Hall in 1916 it was decided to elect a London "Safety First" Council to tackle the "alarming increase in traffic accidents, and the direct connection therewith of the restricted street lighting which had been necessitated by the War conditions".

So began the organisation which was to become the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
