Hong Kong Traffic PC–50 至 60 年代香港的交通警


Hong Kong Traffic PC

當時﹐ 50 至 60 年代的殖民地香港﹐交通燈 (即十字路口的紅錄燈) 尚未普及使用﹐只有交通警 (男或女) 在繁忙十字路口﹐指揮汽車的來往。記憶中﹐大道的路 口﹐ 例如﹕太子道/彌敦道﹐窩打老道/彌敦道等﹐都有交通亭 (如上照片) 。  站在亭台上的交通警﹐帶著兩白色布袖﹐揮動雙臂﹐左右﹐上下﹐有節奏﹐有韻律﹐指點四面來往的車輛﹐循規道矩的駛過﹐非常安全。因為駕車者都十分小心﹐集中精神﹐沒有今天衝紅燈的懷習慣。若有小錯﹐譬如﹕該停沒停﹐或過了白界等等﹐交通姐姐或交通叔叔便走下來﹐發給你一張告票。這樣做﹐交通十分安全﹐效率非常高。

可惜﹐今天的香港﹐此景不再。如果配著“柴可夫”的樂章﹐加上交通叔叔和交通姐姐的優美姿態﹐來香港的遊客﹐必多了一個街景﹐拍照留念。可是﹐優質的文化﹐隨著時光消失了﹗
