TO PERFORM:-

Explain that driving a car nowadays is a risky business and that the most unusual things can happen. Take out the ten cards and illustrate some of the possible things that can happen to your volunteer by showing him the first five or six cards (without disturbing the order). Next show him the Driving Licence and explain that he must have one before facing the perils of the road.

Say to him, "If I were to ask you for a number between one and ten, would you choose a high number i.e. between six and ten, or a low number i.e. between one and five."

If he chooses a high number (7, 8 or 9) count the cards face down onto the table, one at a time until you reach his number. A Traffic Warden card will either be this card or the next one, so you place the correct card face down in front of him. Now show the cards before and after his selection emphasising that the cards are different.

If he should choose a low number (2, 3 or 4) show that you have ten cards by counting them face down onto the table. This reverses the order of the cards and brings the 'Traffic Warden' cards into the second and fourth positions. Continue as for a high number placing the correct card face down in front of him. Ask him to turn over the card he selected and read out what has happened to him. Take out the

Driving Licence and show him the endorsement which correctly predicted the card he would choose.
