Zebra crossings

The world's most famous zebra crossing is the one featured on the Beatles' Abbey Road album in North London.

Zebra crossings were introduced in Britain on 4 April 1949.

The Name Zebra was chosen because it was thought that it would be easily understood and remembered by children.  It was chosen by the then parliamentary secretary to the ministry of transport.
